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.
