The only pass that went Bennie Fowler’s way in Super Bowl 50 was hauled in for a successful two-point conversion, but the second-year wide receiver didn’t keep the ball. Instead, he handed it over to Peyton Manning after the game.
Fowler, 24, tweeted that he didn’t know if it would end up being the last completed pass of Manning’s NFL career, but that the 39-year-old veteran deserved to have the ball.
Manning has earned 14 trips to the Pro Bowl since he was selected No. 1 in the 1998 NFL Draft following three straight All-American seasons with the Tennessee Volunteers. He is the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns, and became the first quarterback to reach 200 regular-season and postseason wins in a career with the 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
But, he is mulling retirement.
In two seasons with the Broncos, Fowler has 16 career receptions and added two catches in Denver’s 2015 postseason run.
