Jags & Dwight Lowery "not close"

Dwight Lowery - DB - Jaguars

The Jaguars are "not close" to a deal to re-sign free agent FS Dwight Lowery.

Lowery earned a high coverage grade from Pro Football Focus and was often cited as the glue to a significantly improved secondary in his first year with the Jaguars. While the Jags certainly want to retain Lowery's services, it appears they aren't willing to overpay to do so.

I love the Mathis re-signing, I personally think he'll be back to full strength by week 1

However, we went from a safety-needy team to position secured, along with added depth. If Lowery hits the open market, not only is he in for a huge payday, but it only increases the risk of..

1. The price tag escalating alot more than what he may be asking for "now"

or

2. He may/could be on his way out. (We ALL know how much a Safety means to a team in today's pass-happy league, or must I bring back our 2010 depleted secondary?)

The Jags said their "own player's" come first; 5 days left & we have one guy re-signed.Trading a 7th round pick for his services clearly paid dividends for our D, which we got back in compensation from the Bengals anyway.

Lowery was one of, if not, the steal of 2011.

PAY THE MAN!!
