Former Northwestern star Dean Lowry gets contract extension from Packers
Former Northwestern star defensive lineman Dean Lowry has impressed the Green Bay Packers enough to receive a contract extension.
The Packers announced on Tuesday that they agreed to terms for an extension with Lowry. The terms of the extension were not immediately available.
Lowry was drafted out of Northwestern in the 2016 NFL Draft in the fourth round. He’s missed just one game through his first three years in the league, appearing in 47 career games. He has totaled 105 tackles and seven sacks.
Lowry has made 13 starts, making eight of those in 2018. He finished his third year with the Packers with 57 stops, four passes defended and three sacks. He also scored his first NFL touchdown by recovering a fumble in the end zone.
Green Bay finished the 2018 season with a 6-9-1 record.
