Chargers Sign Dwight Lowery

The Chargers have added some depth and experience to their defense backfield, as the team announced that they’ve signed veteran safety Dwight Lowery to a three-year contract.

The journeyman had one of his best seasons in 2015 with the Colts. The 30-year-old started all 16 games, finishing with 76 tackles, one sack, four interceptions, and nine passes defended. The eight-year veteran also spent time with the Jets, Jaguars, and Falcons, compiling 266 tackles, five sacks, and 16 interceptions throughout his career.

Despite his apparent improvement this past year, Pro Football Focus wasn’t particularly fond of his performance. Lowery ranked 49th among those at his position, although he was the Colts’ highest-rated safety. He ranked eighth in our list of the top free agent safeties.

    So the Chargers run a Pro-bowl safety out of town and sign the 49th ranked safety. And then they wonder why they go 4-12.

      Sorry bro but weddle lost a step and gave up on us!! Glad to see him go and it wasn’t the defense fault it was the o line and no run game!

        The front office treated him like shit, no wonder he gave up on us.
