Bowers, 25, has been a major disappointment ever since the Buccaneers used a second-round pick on him back in 2010. He has missed nine games in the past two years with injuries and has been largely ineffective when healthy.
On top of that, the NFL suspended Bowers two games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Tampa Bay elected to bring him back one-year deal this past July and moved him to defensive tackle. However, he was among their final roster cuts at the start of the season.
Since then, Bowers has worked out for a few of teams including the Cowboys, Panthers and Vikings, but has yet to receive a contract offer.
In 2014, Bowers appeared in 11 games and recorded 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass defense for the Buccaneers.
Kitchen, 27, originally signed on with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Kent State back in 2012. He lasted just a few months with the Ravens before he was cut at the start of the 2012 season and later claimed by the Browns.
Kitchen wound up re-signing with the Browns as a restricted free agent this past May, but was unfortunately among the team’s roster cuts over a month ago.
The Lions signed him to a contract a few months ago, but cut him loose just a few weeks later.
In 2014, Kitchen appeared in 12 games and recorded 43 tackles for the Browns.
