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.
