  • Falcons' Dean Marlowe: Signs with Falcons

    The Falcons have signed Marlowe to a one-year contract, Matt Urben of USA Today reports.

    This past season, Marlowe logged 67 tackles in 16 games (including nine starts) with the Lions. The 29-year-old gives the Falcons some added depth and experience at safety, but he'll need to secure a starting role in order to find himself on the IDP radar in 2022.

  • Lions' Dean Marlowe: Seven stops in Week 13

    Marlowe recorded seven solo tackles during Sunday's 29-27 win over the Vikings.

    Marlowe played more than 90 percent of the Lions' defensive snaps for the second consecutive week and has recorded 17 tackles during that span. After losing out on the starting strong safety job to Will Harris to begin the season, the 29-year-old safety is now playing a prominent role for Detroit's secondary.

  • Lions' Dean Marlowe: Entering season in backup role

    Marlowe will enter the season in a backup role after Will Harris won the starting job at strong safety, Kyle Meinke of reports.

    Marlowe rotated first-team reps with Harris throughout the offseason before Harris pulled away with the starting role during the preseason. While he likely won't see enough playing time to be relevant in IDP leagues, Marlowe should at least serve in a rotational role for Detroit this year. He was cut ahead of Tuesday's roster deadline but re-signed with the team Thursday.

  • Lions' Dean Marlowe: Candidate for starting role

    Marlowe is in the mix for a starting role at safety, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Coming to Detroit from Buffalo, the soon-to-be 29-year-old was the Bills' third safety in 2020 behind two excellent players in Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer. After he and Will Harris reportedly rotated reps with the first-team defense next to Tracy Walker during OTAs and minicamp this offseason, Marlowe now appears to have a chance at becoming a starter with the Lions.

  • Lions' Dean Marlowe: Heads to Detroit

    The Lions signed Marlowe to a contract Thursday.

    Marlowe, who spent the past three seasons with the Bills, tallied a career-high 22 tackles (16 solo), 1.5 sacks, two interceptions and three pass breakups through 15 games in 2020. The 28-year-old adds depth to the Lions' safety corps and also figures to be a contributor on special teams.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Back with team

    Marlowe was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list by the Bills on Thursday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Marlowe was placed on the list due to coming in close contact with Josh Norman, who tested positive for the virus last weekend. Marlowe is expected to return to the lineup for the Week 12 game against the Chargers, as he'll add depth in the secondary while seeing most of his snaps on special teams.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Part of COVID-19 incident

    Marlowe has been determined to have been in recent close contact with Josh Norman, who has tested positive for COVID-19, The Buffalo News reports. Marlowe has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list and will not play Sunday at Arizona.

    The Bills have had issues in their secondary all season, so Marlowe has been seeing meaningful time on defense for weeks. For now, Buffalo will have to figure out a way to replace Norman, Levi Wallace and Marlowe, as the secondary is now severely depleted for Sunday's contest.

  • Dean Marlowe: Sticks with Buffalo

    Marlowe has re-signed with the Bills on a one-year deal.

    The Bills are set at safety with Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde, but Marlowe knows the defense well enough to serve as a dependable backup and has proven to be a decent special teams player. His re-signing does leave the Bills' interest in veteran Kurt Coleman (now a free agent) in question, however.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Clears concussion protocol

    Marlowe (concussion) has been cleared to play in Sunday's tilt against the Titans.

    Marlowe was limited at practice earlier in the week before logging a full workload Friday. He completed his trend in the positive direction Saturday by clearing the final stage of the league's protocol. The 27-year-old is now set to resume his role providing depth at safety.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Questionable for Sunday's game

    Marlowe (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Titans.

    Marlowe was able to elevate to full participation in Friday's practice, but he still needs to clear the league's concussion protocol. The 27-year-old safety should be considered a game-time decision for Sunday's kickoff at 1:00 p.m. ET.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Nursing concussion

    Marlowe is in the concussion protocol Monday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Marlowe suffered a head injury during Sunday's loss to the Patriots. He'll now need to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol before retaking the field. Jaquan Johnson will see additional opportunities as a depth safety if Marlowe is unable to return for this week's game against the Titans.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Suffers possible head injury

    Marlowe is being evaluated for a possible head injury, and is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots.

    Any time you see a player being evaluated for a head injury, one must assume it's for a concussion. It's unclear how Marlowe picked up the injury, but expect him to get further tests, with Jaquan Johnson filling in as a depth safety.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Returning to Buffalo

    The Bills brought Marlowe up from the practice squad Wednesday.

    Marlowe and the Bills parted ways in early October after he received a spot start for the team just a day prior, but he landed in the practice squad and now gets a late-season promotion. He's been brought back on with a pair of players in the secondary dealing with injuries. Still, he shouldn't serve as much more than a depth option.

  • Dean Marlowe: Let go by Buffalo

    Marlowe was waived Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Reside on the practice squad until Friday. Get promoted on a Saturday. Get bumped to a starter's spot Sunday and have a key role in a close win. Get cut 48 hours later so a 35-year-old quarterback can take your place. Such is life in the NFL for fringe players like Marlowe, who was waived so the Bills could make room for veteran Derek Anderson. The Bills like Marlowe and what he brings to the table, so we'll see if they try to bring the safety back to the practice squad.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Gets Week 5 spot start

    Marlowe, just promoted from the practice squad Saturday, started at safety across from Jordan Poyer in Sunday's win over the Titans and logged four tackles and a pass defensed.

    Marlowe played all 54 defensive snaps, so he was the clear-cut starter at least for one week and didn't have to share time with rookie Siran Neal. Marlowe played capably according to coach Sean McDermott's post-game comments, but his run as a starter could be short-lived if either Micah Hyde (groin) or Rafael Bush (shoulder) gets back to practicing this week.

  • Bills' Dean Marlowe: Gets Week 5 promotion

    Marlowe was promoted from the practice squad Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

    Marlowe is no stranger to Buffalo brass, as they've all collectively reunited from their Carolina days. The safety may be no stranger to the field Sunday either, as safeties Micah Hyde and Rafael Bush haven't practiced all week, and the only other healthy safety is a rookie in Siran Neal.
