Josina Anderson reports that the Chargers are releasing veteran S Dwight Lowery on Saturday.
Lowery, 30, is a former fourth-round pick of the Jets back in 2008. He spent three years in New York before signing on with the Jaguars in 2011 and later joining the Falcons in 2014.
The Colts signed him to a one-year contract and he put together a reasonably productive season before the Chargers signed him to a three-year deal.
He was entering the second year of a three-year, $7.2 million contract that included a $1.5 million signing bonus and was set to earn a base salary of $2 million this year.
In 2016, Lowry appeared in all 16 games for the Chargers and recorded 60 total tackles, one interception, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, nine pass defenses, and scored one defensive touchdown.
