The Atlanta Falcons were very busy on Tuesday.
First the team reportedly agreed to terms with cornerback Josh Wilson on a one-year deal.
Then, they came to an agreement with another defensive back, former Jacksonville Jaguars’ safety Dwight Lowery.

The team announced the signing of both Lowery and Wilson via a press release.
Lowery was originally drafted by the New York Jets with the 113th overall pick in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL Draft. Lowery, who attended Cabrillo College in Aptos, California before playing for the San Jose State Spartans, appeared in all 16 games as a rookie, piling up 64 tackles, 16 passes defended, five forced fumble sand an interception.
Although it looked like the future was very bright, Lowery could not match that production and was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars just before the 2011 season began.
The Jaguars released Lowery during the 2013 season after he was placed on injured reserve.
In six seasons, he has 180 tackles and 10 interceptions.
