When the Bengals talked out Reggie Nelson's contract demands on Monday, they obviously felt that he was asking too high of a price for his services. One possible free agent at the position that the team could have courted was Dwight Lowery. Apparently that window of opportunity to speak with Lowery has closed.

According to the Twitter account of Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times Union, Lowery has re-upped with his old team.

It's unclear what the terms are of the contract at this point, but once it is reported, it will be a good barometer for the safety free agent market demands that Nelson may be asking. Lowery, along with Nelson, were/are two of the top safeties on the market.

It also hasn't been reported if the Bengals were one of the teams that expressed interest in Lowery that Ganguli mentioned. It wouldn't surprise us if they inquired to his agent, though. Regardless, Lowery is yet another possible free agent target that is off of the market for the Bengals.
