The Jacksonville Jaguars have locked up one of their key defensive free agents.
Safety Dwight Lowery has agreed to a new contract that will keep him with the defensive unit that he was so instrumental in helping to turn around last season.
Lowery was one of the free agents that the Jaguars front office had identified as a player they would like to re-sign before free agency began. He was acquired from the New York Jets last offseason for a seventh-round draft pick and provided a immediate and drastic improvement to the Jaguars secondary.
Many considered Lowery to be the best safety on the market this offseason, so the Jaguars are lucky to keep him in the fold.
According to Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union, Lowery’s new deal is for four years and his agent took calls from other interested teams after the free agency period opened.
