Dwight Lowery, Jaguars Agree To 4-Year Contract According To Report

On a disappointing day thus far for Jaguars fans, it appears a glimpse of good news could close out the day. About six hours after officially becoming a free agent, it seems as though the Jaguars have reached a deal with free safety Dwight Lowery to keep him in Jacksonville. Lowery originally broke the news on Twitter before Tania Ganguli confirmed the news with a subsequent tweet.

Originally a 4th round pick of the New York Jets, the Jaguars acquired Lowery, 26, via trade just prior to the 2011 season from the Jets for what turned out to be a 7th round draft pick. After two weeks as a backup, Lowery took over as the starting free safety for the Jaguars and tallied 36 tackles, one sack and two interceptions.

The terms of the contract are undisclosed at this point, although Ganguli tweeted it is a four-year deal.
