Bennie Fowler will always be remembers as the individual — who caught Peyton Manning’s final pass in Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers at Levi Stadium — has signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the Denver Broncos. He had a large with the team last year, including their playoff win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fowler — who was undrafted after playing collegiate football with the Michigan State Spartans — had his biggest catch of the season on a 31-yard reception for a third-and-12 in the fourth quarter. The Broncos came-from-behind to defeat the Steelers, 23-16, in the Divisional Round.
After C.J. Anderson scored to make it 22-10 over the Panthers, Fowler caught Manning’s two-point conversion to seal the Broncos 24-10 win over the Panthers. A short time later, Fowler gave the ball to Manning.
A month later, Manning decided to retire after it seemed like he would not be able to return to the Broncos. Before Monday’s media availability of Super Bowl week, news broke that Manning would retire — even when he was very quiet about the whole situation.
On Monday, the Broncos start their off-season program. But in the off-season, following the trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to acquire Mark Sanchez, he’s been working with Sanchez in California — as the Broncos say their confident with Sanchez being their starter if they can’t pull off a deal to acquire San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick — as he’s not willing to accept taking a pay cut.
