Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that Rowe has agreed to a three-year extension with the team. It’s worth $18 million with $7 million in guaranteed money.
Rowe moved from cornerback to safety after injuries to Reshad Jones and Bobby McCain left Miami thin at the position. He did a good job on Eagles tight end Zach Ertz in coverage during Sunday’s 37-31 win. Rowe has 59 tackles and seven passes defensed over the entire season.
Rowe began his career as an Eagles second-round pick in 2015 and was traded to the Patriots ahead of the 2016 season. He signed a one-year deal with the Dolphins this offseason.
Say goodbye to Jones.
He was already long gone.
Already did. When he went on IR it was all over.
Nothing against Rowe, but how come when we extend someone I start feeling a little queasy? ;-)
Maybe under previous regimes but seeing how Flores (well via Grier) has gutted this roster, if someone is extended now, I have a feeling they're going to be sticking around for a while
My question is why. I havent seen a worse player since Jamar Fletcher and one decent game at safety doesnt change that.
He has had more than one decent game.
I like it. We’ve seen TE’s burn this secondary for years and he did a great job on Ertz. Reward guys who want to be here, work hard and are team players.
Hes also had some of the worst I've seen in my life.
Same. However, after the bye as a safety, he has been really good.
I guess I am being a bit overly critical. It's not like we shelled out a lot of money. Even if he regresses it's not going to cripple us.
True, plus Miami does a salary floor to deal with.
I think this sent a message to the cheatriots Flores left behind too. Come play for me, I'll get you paid.
It does help to have a guy who was in your system before and be able to almost act as a field coach especially the 1st year.
7 million guaranteed over three years is not much. This is mostly a depth signing. Still need to find or draft a CB2.
Given Rowe's athletic limitations, safety certainly seems to fit him much better. Although, I wonder why Belichick never sought to try him out at the position. So far, he's been a natural. Would be curious to see his PFF stats since the position change.
It's tough to get excited over a Rowe/McCain-led backfield, but I can appreciate a guy who works hard at his craft. He's carved out a niche in this Miami defense, and he's done it well enough to be asked back for three more years. Good on him, and I hope it works out for both parties.
