Garafolo mentions that when the Giants waived him a few months ago, they didn’t close the door on possibly bringing Bowie back.
Bowie was charged with domestic assault and battery, and malicious injury or destruction of property in Oklahoma back on July 31, according to court records obtained by KOTV-6 in Tulsa.
According to the report, Bowie went to his girlfriend’s home and became angry with her because of how she spoke to his mother, prosecutors allege.
Bowie allegedly grabbed her by the throat, threw her to the ground, punched a hole in the wall and broke two televisions.
Bowie, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks out of Northeastern State back in 2013. He spent one year in Seattle before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Browns.
Cleveland placed Bowie on the reserve/retired list back in early August before cutting him loose in September of last year. Bowie signed a future/reserve contract with the Giants this past January but cut him loose shortly after the allegations surfaced.
In 2013, Bowie appeared in nine games and played a total of 539 snaps, grading out as a solid run-blocker.
