    I'm glad one person around here appreciated him besides me.

    Where is Crash when ya need him?

    Fowler will be forever known for catching the last pass Peyton Manning ever threw in the NFL.. A Super Bowl victory celebration 2 point conversion.

    I'm pretty much - Meh - about Bennie Fowler, but I'd gladly ask for the handshake if I saw him. I wish him well. Going to the Bears will guarantee his anonymity as a pro player, but it is close to his college home.

    Same- I think maybe it was time to move on from Bennie. He was an ok special teams player and an ok WR. Can live with or without him.

    Bennie was a lot like the last WR we didn't care to re-sign and was picked up by the Bears, Eddie Royal.

    When you get as much production out of an undrafted player as Bennie was, you have to be appreciative.

    Crash will miss him.

    I was thinking the other way - whenever a guy stays mysteriously on the roster taking up space for no apparent reason - you have to appreciate that. ;)

    Didn't he make a stop in San Degio before Chicago?

    Good luck to Bennie, He did reasonably well with the opportunities he was given. He made some clutch catches for us, and had some big drops too. Good luck to him in Chicago.

    Fowler has some good memories and some not so good memories attached to his time in Denver. Hard worker but talent wise just wasn't the guy.
