  • Lynn Bowden: Lands on Pats' practice squad

    Bowden signed a contract with New England's practice squad Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Bowden was waived by the Dolphins on Monday after he failed to carve out a spot in the team's relatively deep corps of wideouts this preseason. The 24-year-old has played multiple offensive positions -- including quarterback, running back and wideout -- dating back to his college days with Kentucky. Bowden will likely need to work his way into a similar multi-positional role in order to secure a spot on New England's active roster.

  • Lynn Bowden: Cut loose by Dolphins

    The Dolphins waived Bowden on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bowden offers versatility as a former college QB who has played running back and slot receiver in addition to returning kicks at times. He may not be skilled enough at one task to warrant a roster spot in Miami, but other teams could be interested in taking a look. Bowden was a third-round pick of the Raiders in 2020.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Trade candidate?

    The Dolphins have engaged in discussions about trading Bowden, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Bowden and fellow incumbent wideout Preston Williams have both had their reps in training camp limited due to impressive showings by rookies Erik Ezukanma (fourth round) and Braylon Sanders (UDFA). Bowden's acumen on special teams should give him a leg up over Williams in terms of competing for a roster spot, but neither player has a clear path to offensive snaps in Miami's revamped receiver corps, so it's conceivable that an organization with poor depth at the position, such as Dallas, could part ways with late-round draft capital. A hamstring injury kept Bowden from taking the field last season, but he's participated in training camp without issue.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Competing for roster spot

    Alain Poupart of Sports Illustrated predicts that Bowden's versatility will land him a roster spot with the Dolphins this coming season.

    Bowden, who didn't play last season due to a hamstring injury, was sidelined during a portion of the team's OTAs, but he subsequently was able to re-take the field and should be ready to compete fully in training camp. While the 24-year-old's path to steady touches in Miami's offense is murky, Poupart suggests that Bowden's diverse skill set should land him a depth role in the team's re-tooled wideout corps, which also includes top options Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, along with Cedrick Wilson, Trent Sherfield, Preston Williams and Erik Ezukanma.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Still dealing with hamstring issue

    Bowden (hamstring) isn't participating during the Dolphins' OTAs, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Bowden suffered a hamstring injury during training camp last year and was ultimately placed on injured reserve for the entire season. Health isn't the 2020 third-round pick's only concern, however, as he also faces competition for a roster spot after the Dolphins acquired Tyreek Hill via trade this offseason and drafted Erik Ezukanma in the fourth round. Miami's new head coach, Mike McDaniel, has praised Bowden's versatility as a unique trait, but the 5-foot-11 offensive gadget has to get healthy before he tries to carve out a role in Miami's loaded wideout corps.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Facing competition for roster spot

    Bowden (hamstring) will face competition from rookie fourth-round pick Erik Ezukanma this offseason, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

    Bowden, who spent the entire 2021 season sidelined due to a hamstring injury, very realistically could be on the roster bubble for Miami's new coaching staff. The 24-year-old flashed some competence as a rookie in 2020, when he racked up 28 catches for 211 yards on 37 targets through 10 appearances, but he now faces competition for even a depth gig from all of Ezukanma, Preston Williams and Trent Sherfield.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Returns to injured reserve

    Bowden (hamstring) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and reverted to injured reserve, The Orange County Register reports.

    Bowden landed on the COVID list last week but is now back on injured reserve, where he's been since August. The 24-year-old isn't expected to take the field for Miami this season.

  • Dolphins' Lynn Bowden: Moves to COVID list

    Bowden (illness) was moved to the reserve/COVID-19 list from IR on Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Bowden was already out for the season with a hamstring injury suffered in practice during training camp. Any rehabbing at the Dolphins' facility that he is doing will have to pause until he can clear COVID protocols. Once cleared, he'll return to preparing for the 2022 season.
