EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms on a contract with former Green Bay defensive end Dean Lowry on Friday, bringing in a replacement for the departed Dalvin Tomlinson.
Lowry was a free agent who played the last seven years with the Packers. He started 80 of 111 games with 27 tackles for loss and 15 1/2 sacks and played multiple seasons there with current Vikings assistants Mike Smith and Mike Pettine on staff.
Lowry is the latest in a long line of players to go directly from Green Bay to rival Minnesota, following outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith and cornerback Chandon Sullivan last year. Sullivan became a free agent. Smith remains under contract.
Tomlinson was a free agent who signed with Cleveland.
The Vikings also re-signed backup offensive lineman Austin Schlottman for depth behind center Garrett Bradbury and the guard spots.
