Lowery's tackle numbers took a major dip after one-year stints with both the Falcons and Colts, but the veteran safety was a reliable presence for the
Lowery picked up four tackles (two solo), two passes defended, an interception and a forced fumble in Sunday's win over the Texans.
Lowery has been a blessing for a Chargers' defense beset by injuries, as the 2016 free agent import has taken part in every game this season. While his tackle numbers are down from previous years, Lowery has helped stabilize a secondary that has struggled mightily in past seasons.
Lowery was all over the field Sunday, putting together a handful of tremendous plays to halt the Titans strong running gain. Lowery has been one of the few consistent players for the Chargers on defense, thanks largely to the fact that he's managed to stay healthy for most of the year. While he likely doesn't put up enough numbers to be considered a viable IDP option week-to-week, Lowery could make for a solid bye week replacement in deeper leagues.
Lowery led the team in tackles on Sunday, as the secondary was once again tasked with protecting a large early lead. With run-stuffing safety Jahleel Addae potentially suffering a fractured collarbone in the win, Lowery could be in line for more work near the line of scrimmage. He's worth monitoring in deep IDP leagues, but will need to prove that his Week 2 performance wasn't a fluke before starting him with confidence.
Dwight Lowery signed a three-year contract Wednesday with the San Diego Chargers , Michael Gehlken of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
Lowery set a career-high in interceptions (4) during his lone season with the Colts and was able to tally 76 tackles to boot. With the Chargers expecting veteran leader Eric Weddle to leave via free agency, Lowery is expected to take over his role at free safety alongside projected starter Jaheel Addae, although the team might not be done adding pieces to their secondary.
