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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Rowe made 11 tackles (nine solo) in Sunday's 59-10 loss to the Ravens.
While there wasn't much to be thrilled about in the blowout loss to the Ravens, Rowe had a solid stat line against an explosive offense. However, the results weren't flattering, as Lamar Jackson lit up Miami's secondary for 324 yards and five touchdowns -- every score came in the first half. Rowe's work in coverage will need to be stronger in upcoming weeks for the Dolphins to stay in games.
Rowe started at cornerback and played 17 defensive snaps in Friday's preseason matchup with Tampa Bay.
Rowe logged a tackle and recovered a fumble on the Buccaneers' second drive of the day. He appears to have recovered from the injury that kept him out of practice earlier in the month.
Rowe hasn't been able to practice due to an unspecified injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
The specifics surrounding Rowe's injury are unknown at this time, though it could impact his chances of winning a starting job at cornerback if it causes him to miss significant time.
Rowe, who agreed Tuesday with the Dolphins on a one-year contract, is expected to compete for a starting spot ahead of the 2019 season, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Brian Flores, the Dolphins' new head coach and former defensive play caller for the Patriots, clearly believes in Rowe's potential after witnessing the cornerback in action during their time together in New England. Rather than any on-field limitations, Rowe's struggles with staying healthy prevented him from maxing out, as the 2015 second-round pick missed 27 out of 48 possible games. The Utah product should at least enter OTAs with a clean bill of health and will get the opportunity to vie for the top spot on the depth chart opposite All-Pro cornerback Xavien Howard. Minkah Fitzpatrick also looms as a threat for reps at corner, though the Dolphins could prefer to use the versatile defensive back at safety if Rowe plays up to expectations on the outside.
Rowe agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million contract with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Rowe only suited up for four games with the Patriots in 2018, averaging 34 defensive snaps per outing. He'll follow departed defensive play caller Brian Flores -- who was hired as the Dolphins' head man earlier in the offseason -- to Miami. He'll likely compete for a starting role opposite All-Pro cornerback Xavien Howard.
The Patriots placed Rowe (groin) on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Rowe injured his groin during the team's Week 7 win over the Bears and subsequently missed Monday's 25-6 victory over Buffalo. The move to IR likely spells an end to his season, likely paving the way for Jason McCourty to step into an extended starting role opposite top cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
Rowe (groin) was ruled out for Monday's game against the Bills, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.
Rowe did not participate at practice this week so the designation is unsurprising as he continues to battle the groin issue sustained in Week 2. Jonathan Jones and Jason McCourty should see increased defensive snaps Monday at Buffalo.
Rowe (groin) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Rowe has been nursing a groin injury since Week 2, and he appears to have exacerbated the issue during Sunday's win over the Bears. The starting cornerback should be considered questionable for the Patriots' matchup against Buffalo on Monday, while Jonathan Jones would be in line to receive extra defensive snaps if Rowe were to miss any time.
Rowe (groin) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bears.
Rowe suffered a groin injury of undisclosed severity during the fourth quarter of Sunday's game against Chicago. Expect an update on the starting cornerback's health following the Week 7 contest if he's unable to return to the field.
Rowe is active for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs.
Rowe will dress for the first time after missing four games with a groin injury, providing a huge boon to the Patriots' defense in a marquee matchup. The 26-year-old has seven tackles (six solo) and one pass defensed on the season.
Rowe (groin) is considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Rowe has been sidelined since Week 2 due to a groin injury, but he logged a limited practice Friday and could make his return Week 6 as a result. His availability would be huge for the Patriots' secondary as they match up against a potent Chiefs offense in what is expected to be a high-scoring affair.
Rowe (groin) is inactive for Thursday's game against the Colts.
Rowe will miss his third consecutive game of the regular season due to a lingering groin injury. As long as the fourth-year cornerback remains sidelined, expect Jason McCourty and Jonathan Jones to see an uptick in defensive snaps.
