  • Dwight Lowery: Released by Chargers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Lowery was released by the Chargers on Saturday, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports. Lowery recorded 60 tackles, one interception, one touchdown, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery last season with the Chargers. The team has decided to move on, however. Rayshawn Jenkins and Tre Boston should see additional time at free safety as a result.

  • Lowery ended the 2016 campaign with 60 tackles, one interception, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery to go along with a defensive touchdown. 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 Chargers in a season filled with injuries and turmoil. Still two years left on his deal, Lowery is expected to return to the starting lineup next season, but likely should only be considered an IDP option in the deepest of leagues.

  • 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 picked up five tackles (four solo) including two for a loss, defended three passes and returned a fumble for a touchdown in the Chargers win over the Titans on Sunday. 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 signed a three-year contract Wednesday with the 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.
