Last week, the Edmonton Eskimos quietly announced that they’ve signed former Buccaneers second-round DE Da’Quan Bowers to a contract.
Bowers, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2010. He has missed time due to injury and was suspended two games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Tampa Bay elected to bring Bowers back one-year deal in July of 2015 but he was unfortunately among their final roster cuts at the start of the season. Bowers did, however, return to the Buccaneers towards the end of the season.
The last reported NFL interest in Bowers was from last Apri when he worked out for the Chiefs. Kansas City passed on signing him to a contract and he sat out the 2016 season.
For his career, Bowers recorded 46 tackles, seven sacks, two fumble recoveries and six pass defenses for the Buccaneers over the course of five seasons and 53 total games.
