Falcons sign safety Dwight Lowery

The Falcons have signed former Jaguars safety Dwight Lowery, the club said Tuesday.

A former cornerback, the 28-year-old Lowery could vie for a starting role in the Atlanta secondary, which had lacked an experienced safety to pair with William Moore. The Falcons released starting safety Thomas DeCoud in March.

Lowery (5-11, 212) started the first three games for the Jaguars in 2013, then was placed on injured reserve with a concussion. The Jaguars waived him with an injury settlement in November.

Lowery played for the Jets for three seasons (2008-2010), then was traded to the Jaguars in September 2011. He has intercepted 10 passes in his NFL career and has appeared in 68 games (41 starts).

    What are the Falcons, the 2010 DB success center?

    Can’t be much worse than Decoud last year.

    Hey Falcons fans…you just got an upgrade over that softy DeCoud weather people think it is or isn’t. Better ball skills and much smarter. Not a real physical presence but anyone is more physical than Thomas DeCoud, the softest player in NFL History.

    Lowery is a solid player IF he can stay healthy.

    Falcons are gunna trade down from 6 and end up with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix…….Lowery is a valuable piece due to his versatility.

    Desperation is signing a guy Jacksonville doesn’t even want. The Falcons defense is looking like that Stallon arm wrestling movie…(throw it,) Over The Top.

    Ooof. Falcons are already circling the drain this season and it’s still a month from the draft.

    DL was on the DL last year.

    Welcome to the squad. The starting job is yours if you got the gumbo.
