  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Won't return Sunday

    Rowe (back) won't return to Sunday's game against the Patriots, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rowe logged a solo tackle prior to his departure in Sunday's regular-season finale. The 29-year-old appeared in all 17 games during the 2021 campaign and totaled 72 tackles (44 solo), three forced fumbles and four pass defenses.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Questionable to return

    Rowe (back) is questionable to return Sunday against the Patriots.

    Rowe's absence will leave the Dolphins without their starting strong safety. Brandon Jones will likely take on extra snaps until Rowe returns, if he is able to at all.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Racks up nine stops

    Rowe had nine tackles (six solo) and one pass breakup during Sunday's 30-28 loss to the Falcons.

    Rowe only had four combined tackles in his previous two games, but he bounced back nicely versus Matt Ryan and the Falcons. The veteran played less than 30 percent of defensive snaps Weeks 6 and 7, but versus Atlanta he was back on the field 70 percent of the time. With Jason McCourty (foot) expected to require surgery, Rowe could handle an expanded role for the foreseeable future.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Seven stops Week 4

    Rowe had seven tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 27-17 loss to the Colts.

    Rowe is a relatively consistent producer in terms of tackles, but he doesn't regularly rack up coverage stats or sacks, which limits his fantasy upside in IDP formats. He did, however, make an impact play back in Week 1 in the form of a key forced fumble in the first half.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Forces fumble in win

    Rowe had nine tackles (six solo) and a forced fumble during Sunday's 17-16 win over the Patriots.

    The 28-year-old delivered a key takeaway during the first quarter when he stripped the ball from Rhamondre Stevenson, and he also finished second on the team in tackles. Rowe set a career high with 91 total tackles last year, and he's off to a strong start toward raising that figure again in 2021.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Career-high stops in 2020

    Rowe notched 91 tackles (66 solo), 11 defended passes, two interceptions and a fumble recovery across 16 games with the Dolphins in 2020.

    Rowe accumulated 10 more tackles than in 2019, previously the best year of his career, despite playing almost 100 less defensive snaps. The Dolphins have a potential out in Rowe's contract this offseason that would only leave the team with a dead cap hit of $1 million, but considering the 28-year-old's relatively consistent level of play, he could end up sticking around to finish the final two years of his deal.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Returns to action

    Rowe (head) returned to the field Sunday against the Bengals, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rowe left during the first quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, but he was apparently able to clear the concussion protocol. Rowe will move back to his every-down role at strong safety for Miami.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Exits with possible concussion

    Rowe left Sunday's game against the Bengals to be evaluated for a concussion, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

    The 28-year-old exited during the first quarter and won't be able to return if the concussion is confirmed. Rookie Brandon Jones has stepped in at strong safety in Rowe's absence.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Season-high tackle mark

    Rowe had 10 tackles (seven solo) and a fumble recovery during Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Broncos.

    Rowe notched double-digit tackles for the first time all year. In addition to consistently working as a run stopper, the starting safety had an impact play when he recovered a fumble lost by Melvin Gordon. Rowe now has 59 tackles, nine passes defensed and an interception through 10 contests.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Leads team in tackles

    Rowe recorded nine tackles (seven solo) and a pass defensed across 71 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Jets.

    Rowe led the Dolphins in tackles and played every defensive snap in the contest. The veteran safety now has 31 tackles on the season to go along with four passes defensed.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Pick-six in finale

    Rowe recorded five tackles (four solo), one defended pass, and one interception which he returned for a touchdown during Sunday's divisional win over the Patriots.

    Rowe nabbed a floated pass from Tom Brady early in the second quarter, returning it 35 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. The former Patriot's interception marked Brady's his first pick-six since Dec. 24, 2017. Rowe set career-high marks across the board during his first season in Miami, recording 81 tackles (54 solo), eight defended passes, one pick-six and one forced fumble across 16 contests. The 2015 second-round pick has the potential to once again provide fantasy value in IDP formats when he returns to the Dolphins in 2020.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Receives three-year extension

    Rowe signed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Dolphins on Monday that includes $7 million guaranteed, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rowe has taken over the starting job at free safety for the Dolphins and has apparently impressed in his transition from cornerback. The 27-year-old was scheduled to become a free agent following the season after inking a one-year deal in March, but he's now set to be in Miami through the 2022 campaign.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Shifting to safety

    Rowe is expected to start at free safety for the rest of the season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Rowe has already spent time at safety this season with Reshad Jones sitting out multiple games with a rib injury, but he should be cemented in that role going forward with both Jones (undisclosed) and Bobby McCain (shoulder) on IR. Steven Parker is expected to start at strong safety, and this tandem will have its first shot Sunday against the Browns.
