Saints Add WR Bennie Fowler to a 1-Yr Deal
LINK

The New Orleans Saints added depth to the WR position Thursday evening when they announced the signing of veteran wideout Bennie Fowler to a one-year contract. A six-year NFL veteran, Fowler will compete for a spot behind starters Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, a teammate of Fowler's with the Denver Broncos for four seasons. He has 95 career receptions for 1,090 yards and six touchdowns in five seasons.

The 29-Yr old Fowler entered the Broncos league in 2014 as an undrafted rookie from Michigan State. After a year on their practice squad, he saw action in all 16 games of the 2015 season for Denver, catching 16 passes for 203 yards for the Super Bowl 50 champion Broncos. Fowler had 56 receptions for 698 yards and 5 scores with Denver before moving on as a free agent in 2018. After being released by the Bears and Patriots in early 2018, Fowler signed with the New York Giants, where he has played the last two seasons. He had 39 receptions for 392 yards and a touchdown in 18 games of action with New York.

The 6’1” 212-Lb Fowler has good speed and plays physically through the middle part of the field. He is also an accomplished special teams contributor, something that the Saints have emphasized in recent years. Fowler should be in the mix for one of the last spots in the New Orleans receiving corps.

Honestly, don't post if you don't give a frick. We don't need any more negativity or bull shite on this board than we've already had the past few months. GMoney is contributing the way he always has and I appreciate his efforts.

Is opt-out money paid by each team or the NFL in general?

And yet you’re still here posting on Saints Talk.

Although it’s not surprising that you don’t know what “could care less” means, which is that you care a lot.

The team.

It’s important to know that the opt out money is actually just a cash advance to the players

When they come back in 2021, the stipend will be taken out of their scheduled 2021 pay

If the NFL was paying the stipend, more teams may encourage fringe players to opt-out.

I was trying to figure out if the Patriots had found a way to game the system.

The Patriots are always a few chess moves ahead.

More speed, good special teamer. He can compete for that probably last 5th receiver spot after Thomas/Sanders/Smith/Harris

By all means. I was just trying to give you the same shite energy you gave GMoney for an innocuous, yet informative post on a new player at a position where we've struggled the past 4+ seasons. Keep up the good work though, bud.

I think the only “gaming” of the system is they probably told their players to decide ASAP so they could have a head start in planning on life without those players

Deadline hasn’t even begun yet (players have 7 days once the agreement is ratified, which still hasn’t happened) so you’re gonna have a lot more guys opt out for other NFL teams the closer you get to whenever the actual deadline comes
