San Diego Chargers bring in safety help, sign Colts S Dwight Lowery

The Chargers front office adds another piece of depth and sign former Colts safety Dwight Lowery

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Well, it appears that Tom Telesco just can't help himself and must sign at least one former Colt every offseason. This year's addition is safety Dwight Lowery.

Lowery is an eight-year veteran who started out as a 4th round pick by the New York Jets in 2008. Over his career Lowery has managed to accumulate 399 tackles, 60 passes defended, and 16 interceptions, 4 of which came last season.

I am not sure how to feel about this signing without seeing the contract details. I think this may wind up dropping the Chargers out of the running for Tashaun Gipson in free agency, but I don't think it would rule them out of taking FSU S Jalen Ramsey at #3 in the draft.

Pairing this signing up with the Brandon Mebane and Travis Benjamin signings, today is off to a pretty good start for the Chargers.
