Packers’ strong financial commitment to the defensive front is not done yet

An eye-opening financial splurge this offseason to the defensive front, particularly with pass rushers, has been among the biggest storylines of the Green Bay Packers in a year full of change. Even the first-round selection of Rashan Gary represented a further focus on that area of the defense. And with the news of a Dean Lowry extension on Tuesday, that deep commitment continued to the tune of another three-year, $20.3 million contract.

That Lowry was re-signed before the beginning of a contract year is not in itself a surprise, but perhaps the money raises some eyebrows.
