Patriots Waive WR Bennie Fowler, Promote OT Cole Croston


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Patriots have waived WR Bennie Fowler on Saturday and are promoting OT Cole Croston to their active roster.

Fowler, 27, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State in May of 2014. He wasn’t able to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season, but later wound up on their practice squad and returned on a future/reserve contract.

The Broncos brought Fowler back on one-year exclusive rights deals each of the past two years. However, Denver declined to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent this offseason and he later signed on with the Bears. Chicago, unfortunately, released him coming out of the preseason.

The Patriots signed Fowler to a contract earlier in the week.

In 2017, Fowler appeared in all 16 games for the Broncos and caught 29 passes for 350 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
