Dolphins To Sign CB Eric Rowe

The Dolphins have agreed to sign cornerback Eric Rowe, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. It’ll be a one-year deal with a maximum value of $4.5MM, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe (on Twitter) adds, but his $500K signing bonus represents his only guarantee. In essence, Rowe will have to secure his roster spot in order to realize any significant cash from the deal.

Rowe, a former second-round pick of the Eagles, battled a groin injury throughout the season. Finally, in late October, the Pats were forced to place him on IR. Heading into March, the Patriots were expected to let him walk, and they’ll now see him twice in 2019, provided that he’s healthy and on the field.

Over the last three years with New England, Rowe has missed 27 possible regular season games. However, he offers promise and he could be in line for a larger role now that he is reunited with former Patriots defensive guru and new Dolphins head coach Brian Flores. Ultimately, however, there is a ceiling. Rowe figures to battle for a supporting role at cornerback behind Xavien Howard, Bobby McCain, and Minkah Fitzpatrick.

    Actually, this guy is a bum! Didn’t you watch last years Super Bowl! He’s no better than a back up.

    Love how the Dolphins playbook is “just get New England people. coaches, players, concession stand operators, doesn’t matter.”

      Why not? Anything else that organization has done since the 70’s hasn’t worked.
