  • Saints' Lynn Bowden: Steps up in injured receiving corps

    Bowden failed to catch either of his two targets during Sunday's 24-15 loss to the Falcons.

    Bowden saw his most significant usage of the season to help fill in for the Saints' injury-riddled receiving corps. With Michael Thomas (knee) already on injured reserve, New Orleans became extremely short handed after Chris Olave (concussion) and Rashid Shaheed (thigh) were both forced out with injuries. As a result, Bowden played a season-high 46 offensive snaps and went on to account for his team's third-longest play from scrimmage on a 29-yard carry in the fourth quarter. The 6-foot wideout also had two targets wiped off the board due to penalties, including a 14-yard reception in the third quarter. Bowden's capability as a rusher on end-arounds and as a punt returner could continue to net him increased playing time in the event Shaheed remains sidelined against Detroit in Week 13.

  • Saints' Lynn Bowden: Joins active roster

    New Orleans signed Bowden to its 53-man roster Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    A little more than two weeks after being cut from the practice squad, Bowden has now found his way onto the active roster. As long as Chris Olave, Michael Thomas and Rashid Shaheed remain healthy though, there's not going to be many targets left for the Saints' other wideouts.

  • Lynn Bowden: Cut by New Orleans

    The Saints waived Bowden on Tuesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Bowden signed with the Saints in mid-June, but he was unable to make enough of an impact to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. He's struggled to find a role in the NFL over the past few seasons, as he spent time with the Raiders, Dolphins and Patriots before joining the Saints this summer. It's unclear whether he'll draw interest from other clubs ahead of the 2023 campaign.

  • Saints' Lynn Bowden: Solid preseason outing Sunday

    Bowden caught two of his three targets for 37 yards during Sunday's 22-17 preseason victory over the Chargers.

    Bowden caught back-to-back passes on the Saints' third offensive series, including a 32-yard catch-and-run on a screen pass from quarterback Jameis Winston. Additionally, the 25-year-old wideout handled return duties for the Saints, totaling two kickoff returns for 41 yards while also fielding four punts for 13 yards and a fair catch. Bowden's ability to create yards after catch combined with his value as a potential returner could go a long way toward carving out a role with New Orleans heading into the regular season.

  • Saints' Lynn Bowden: Links up with New Orleans

    Bowden signed with the Saints on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Bowden has struggled to gain his footing in the NFL since getting selected in the third round of the 2020 Draft by the Raiders. He was traded to the Dolphins before his rookie campaign began and made 28 receptions on 37 targets for 211 yards during his initial season. A hamstring injury ruined his 2021 and he spent all but one game on the Patriots practice squad in 2022. He'll now work to gain that footing with the Saints this season.

  • Lynn Bowden: Let go by New England

    The Patriots waived Bowden on Wednesday, Mike Reiss of reports.

    Bowden, who was active for just one contest with the Patriots last season, spent the bulk of the 2022 campaign on the team's practice squad. The 2020 third-round selection will now look to parlay his versatility into another NFL opportunity.

  • Patriots' Lynn Bowden: Inks futures deal

    The Patriots signed Bowden to a reserve/future contract Monday, Mike Reiss of reports.

    Bowden, a 2020 third-round pick by the Raiders, spent the entire 2022 campaign on the Patriots' practice squad. He saw just one elevation (Week 9) but failed to garner a target across 14 offensive snaps. With his new contract, he'll be able to stick around New England's organization and compete for a roster spot during the offseason.

  • Lynn Bowden: Goes back to practice squad

    Bowden reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Bowden received his first elevation to the active roster this season prior to Sunday's Week 9 win over Indianapolis and played on 14 of the team's 63 offensive snaps. However, he didn't record any touches or targets. Bowden has a versatile skill set, but he's still looking to regain a consistent spot on an NFL roster after missing all of last season with a hamstring injury.

  • Patriots' Lynn Bowden: Elevated to active roster

    Bowden was elevated from the Patriots' practice squad to the active roster on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Bowden has spent the entire season on the Patriots' practice squad and has yet to be active for a game. However, with DeVante Parker (knee) ruled out, Bowden is poised to serve as depth among the team's receiving corps for Sunday's game against the Colts. He's most likely to see the field on special teams.

  • Lynn Bowden: Lands on Pats' practice squad

    Bowden signed a contract with New England's practice squad Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    Bowden was waived by the Dolphins on Monday after he failed to carve out a spot in the team's relatively deep corps of wideouts this preseason. The 24-year-old has played multiple offensive positions -- including quarterback, running back and wideout -- dating back to his college days with Kentucky. Bowden will likely need to work his way into a similar multi-positional role in order to secure a spot on New England's active roster.

  • Lynn Bowden: Cut loose by Dolphins

    The Dolphins waived Bowden on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bowden offers versatility as a former college QB who has played running back and slot receiver in addition to returning kicks at times. He may not be skilled enough at one task to warrant a roster spot in Miami, but other teams could be interested in taking a look. Bowden was a third-round pick of the Raiders in 2020.
