The Green Bay Packers agreed on a contract extension with defensive end Dean Lowry, the team announced Tuesday.

The NFL Network reported Lowry’s deal is worth $20.325 million over three years.

The 25-year-old Lowry is slated to make $2.025 this season in the final year of his rookie contract.

After Green Bay drafted the former Northwestern product in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Lowry worked himself into a steady role on the defensive line, playing all but one game since entering the league.

Last season Lowry posted a career-high 44 tackles, three sacks and three passed defensed in 16 games (eight starts). In three seasons, Lowry owns 84 tackles and seven sacks in 47 games (19 starts).

This offseason the Packers also added former Ravens D-lineman Za’Darius Smith via free agency to a defense that recorded 44 sacks last season, ranking tied for eighth-best in the NFL.
