NFL Notes: Michael Bowie, Cardinals, Saints, Vikings

Michael Bowie

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the NFL has suspended former Giants OT Michael Bowie six weeks.

Bowie was released by the Giants in August after he was arrested on a domestic assault charge. However, the charges were later dismissed (NFLTR) without prejudice by an Oklahoma judge.

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.


On Friday, the Cardinals announced that they’ve signed DL Corey Peters to a three-year contract extension (NFLTR).

Peters later told reporters that he’s very happy to be staying in Arizona for the foreseeable future.

“I think everything kind of worked out well,” Peters said, via Josh Weinfuss of ESPN. “I wanted to stay. It seems like they wanted to get a deal done. It’s been a few-week process, but I’m very happy to move forward and have another three years here.
