Keeping Lowery a key move for Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars were atrocious at safety in 2010.

They did great work to fix it in 2011 -- signing free agent Dawan Landry from Baltimore and trading for Dwight Lowery from the Jets.

Lowery, a corner turned safety, really helped settle things down on the back end before he got hurt.

And the Jaguars have ensured the duo will be in place moving forward by signing Lowery to a new contract. He tweeted that he was back and Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union reported it’s four year deal.

Whether Peyton Manning lands with the Titans or not, a healthy Jaguars defense is equipped to compete with anyone. If they add a top pass-rusher and a cornerback, it will be a complete -- and elite -- group.

They remain desperate for a big-time pass-rusher.

If Mario Williams makes it out of Buffalo, they need to find a way to get him to Jacksonville.

If he doesn’t, they should be players for Dwight Freeney, who’s getting traded or cut by the Colts.
