The Dolphins have used Eric Rowe at a couple of positions this season and they want to keep him around in one role or another for a few more years.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Rowe has agreed to a three-year extension with the team. It’s worth $18 million with $7 million in guaranteed money.

Rowe moved from cornerback to safety after injuries to Reshad Jones and Bobby McCain left Miami thin at the position. He did a good job on Eagles tight end Zach Ertz in coverage during Sunday’s 37-31 win. Rowe has 59 tackles and seven passes defensed over the entire season.

Rowe began his career as an Eagles second-round pick in 2015 and was traded to the Patriots ahead of the 2016 season. He signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins this offseason.

  1. Good signing. Miami is finally making smart moves.
    With Howard back healthy next season and a few of those young kids the secondary will be decent even before using any from draft or free agency.
    3 years miami will be a contender

  2. Flores is doing an amazing job. Never know who will be playing in the secondary from game to game. Disagree with 3 years. Will be less then that. I am concerned about Buffalo though in the future.

  3. By week 4 of next season this signing will become a huge mistake. BB never moved Rowe to safety and BB knows more about defense than Flores ever will. I get it…Fins fans have to find something to be happy about but this isn’t it. Rowe might look good against Wentz, Baker, and Josh Allen but those are all moderate QBs on a good day. Sad part is Miami might pass on a potential stud in the draft because they think safety is locked up with Rowe.

  4. Versatile guys are always valuable, plug him in anywhere in the secondary. Hes solid not elite and his salary reflects that
