The San Diego Chargers have added a starting FS onto the roster by signing Dwight Lowery from the Indianapolis Colts. Lowery started all 16 games for the Colts last season and finished the season with four interceptions and 76 tackles. At this point, the last line of defense for the Chargers will be Dwight Lowery and Jahleel Addae.

The Chargers are still in the mix with Jalen Ramsey as the team’s top selection in the draft. Lowery is a veteran player and should be a solid addition to the defense, but a player like Ramsey still can be brought on.

The Chargers needed to add some talent at the safety position. Everyone will immediately compare Lowery to Eric Weddle, but Lowery is not going to make the type of money that Weddle will be getting in free agency.

Lowery will fill a roster need for the moment for the Chargers, but he is not the long term solution at the position. The Chargers were rumored to have interest in Tayshaun Gipson in free agency, but it seems that the team has gone with Lowery as the replacement at the position instead.
