Senior National NFL Writer
Veteran journalist Jeremy Fowler (no relation to Chris) joined ESPN in September 2014 as a senior NFL writer. Fowler is now a senior national NFL writer for ESPN+ and serves as an NFL insider for weekend SportsCenter shows and other television programming.
Fowler also has appeared on Sunday NFL Countdown as a gameday field reporter, ESPN’s live coverage of the NFL Draft and has told broadcast stories in feature form. Samples of Fowler’s work at ESPN.com include digital video appearances, news, long-form storytelling and trend stories on the league.
Before joining ESPN, Fowler lived in Chicago as a national college football insider for CBSSports.com while also appearing on the CBS Sports Network, including as a weekly panelist on the show Fast Football.
Fowler has unique experience with quarterbacks, covering Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh, Johnny Manziel in Cleveland, Brett Favre in Minnesota for the St. Paul Pioneer Press (2010-12) and Tim Tebow in Florida for the Orlando Sentinel (2007-10). He’s also worked in Albuquerque, N.M., for the Albuquerque Tribune.
The Associated Press Sports Editors, Scripps-Howard, Florida Society of Professional Journalists and the Football Writers Association of America have recognized Fowler’s work. Fowler has a passion for telling human interest and enterprise stories. Recent examples include the rise and fall of All-Pro safety Earl Thomas, the messy breakup of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Killer Bs (Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Roethlisberger) and the Top 10 NFL players at each position through the eyes of more than 50 coaches, execs, scouts and players.
