Bennie Fowler signing with Patriots

Getty Images

Corey Coleman wasn’t the only wide receiver to work out for the Patriots on Monday and he’s not the only one signing with the team on Tuesday.

Bennie Fowler also worked out for the team and Field Yates of ESPN reports that he’s joining Coleman on the 53-man roster. The moves come a day after the Patriots parted ways with wideouts Riley McCarron and Chad Hansen.

Fowler spent the first four years of his career with the Broncos after going undrafted out of Michigan State in 2014. He spent 2014 on the practice squad and caught 56 passes for 698 yards and five touchdowns in 45 regular season outings.

Fowler also caught the final NFL pass of Peyton Manning’s career. That pass came on a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter of Denver’s Super Bowl 50 victory.

Coleman and Fowler, who spent the offseason with the Bears before getting cut this month, join Chris Hogan, Phillip Dorsett and Cordarrelle Patterson as receiver options.

  1. The new england patriots signed UNDRAFTED Bennie Fowler
    to push UNDERPERFORMING 1st round BUST corey coleman.

  2. If a patriot player drops the ball….does it still get marked as a catch by the refs? Just asking due to the curiosity from watching Gronk this weekend.

    Yup. Those are just reserved for Gronk, no one else.
    Certainly not D’Andre Hopkins the very same game.
    Got anything else?

  5. Wow, Fowler and Corey Coleman to the Patriots, and Brian Quick to the Skins. Dez is still sitting on his couch. Bet that Ravens offer doesn’t look so bad now. LMAO

    Yeah that’s why there are pictures of Goodell at Kraft’s house on the internet. I think your confusing “cheated the pats” with punishing the patriots for cheating. And by the way Goodell has not caught the patriots cheating one time….it’s always been opposing teams. Goodell looks the other way until another team reports them.

    No, it counts as a touchdown for the Eagles.

  9. There will be Pats fans that pretend to be master scouts and call this a genius move.

    As a normal Pats fan, like most are, we appreciate the methodical approach of grabbing former high round draft picks and putting them in a structured environment with the greatest QB of all time at the cost of a bag of peanuts.

    That’s what most people don’t get. We appreciate the luxury of simply watching the games and trusting Bill.

  10. What did you folks who hate the Pats think they were going to do with 3 open roster spots and only 3 WR on the roster…pickup a QB?

    Nothing to see here – Pats will work them out and see if they can stick, if not, BB will move on to someone else who can.

  11. What a surprise, Terripet is first to post on a Pats article. How’d the Colts do Sunday??? They are so obsessed with any thing Patriot.
    Life is about choices , interesting that they choose to post on every Pats article.

  12. That’s what most people don’t get. We appreciate the luxury of simply watching the games and trusting Bill.çççç

    Sure because if all else fails Bill is willing to cheat.Tee Hee

    Right so when the Texans coach says he thinks Gronk caught the ball, you just turn a blind eye.

    It must be great to be as ignorant as you are.

    Your coach trips players during kickoffs. Why not when all else fails on special teams.

  15. Broncos fan here. We couldn’t get rid of Bennie Fowler soon enough. Has a bad case of the drops from hanging around DeMaryius Thomas too much. If you were frustrated with Decker for his drops…you’re gonna love Fowler!

    Bob Kraft erred in straddling the fence on Framegate II. Even Brady was ticked as all Pats fans were. Kraft was wrong for making it seem like he’s in Goodell’s pocket.

    Confusing Kraft’s political maneuvering while capitulating, knowing his HOF had been framed, are two different discussions.

    Don’t force mt to post Bill Cowher’s comments on Spygate.

    Goodell cheated, plain and simple.

    Well, he’;s the new punt returner and will battle with Coleman to see who sticks before Edelman returns in Week 5.

    Please do not compare you crap QBs placement of the ball to what brady does with the ball.

    Thanks.

  19. I guess we’ll see how it works out….. not really expecting either Fowler or Coleman to do anything much this year except help out on special teams & study the playbook….. just some insurance/depth for the time being….. I wouldn’t be surprised to see either Britt or Mathews back in the fold if their injuries heal up…….
    Love watching the Pats work the waiver/FA market….. hopefully they find a diamond in the rough…. but not counting on it!!!
    If Coleman can’t make a spot for himself here, he needs to hang up his cleats!!!!
    Go Pats!!!!

  20. I’ve learned that if terripet says a deal is a sham then there is definitely a silver lining. They may not work out but BB does his due diligence and takes a look and a chance anyways. And that Mr. Terripet is why the Patriots get to raise flags while Indy raises participation banners.

    I SWEAR…TERRIPET HAS A PRIVATE ROOM…Where she tries on a Brady jersey when no one is around…and gets all light headed, and fuzzy

    Great point.

    Whatever terripet predicts – history has shown it’s a reverse lock. It is amazingly consistent, and in that regard, is quite impressive when you think of the long odds of such reliable ineptitude.

    Bet the house the other way and you’ll come out a winner.

  24. Funny how the haters said the same thing about dorsett last year..7 targets…7 catches.

    Brady doesn’t need great wrs to make him look good..he takes others trash and makes them look good

    Tripping is legal for a Steelers coach. We are entitled to our advantages any way we can get them. Belichick on the other hand is smarter and better. He builds better rosters, coaches the players better, has them focused on doing exactly what they are supposed to. Thats cheating pure and simple.

  26. He’s the perfect receiver for Brady. No, I’m not saying that he is Randy Moss or Wes Welker, but Fowler is a reliable guy who will catch most passes thrown his way and is a useful tool for a smart and aware QB. When Peyton Manning was in Denver, Fowler was often the fourth reciever who came in on singleback or open sets and made a lot of clutch spot catches in crucial situations. He won’t push a starter out of the lineup, but Brady and the Patritos will find a spots for him to contribute.
