With the Chicago Bears re-signing veteran corner’s Tim Jennings, Kelvin Hayden and Charles ‘Peanut’ Tillman and eyeing a corner in this years draft, there was really no room for a Zack Bowman on the roster.
It’s a little disappointing, because Bowman stepped up in a huge way after Tillman was shelved for the remainder of the 2013 season. He finished his second run with the Bears with 48 combined tackles and three interceptions, two against the Cleveland Browns on December 15th.
But now that he’s a free agent, he’ll be hoping to continue his 2013 style of play with whoever picks him up. According to ESPN Chicago, it appears that Bowman is close to signing a one year deal with the New York Giants. A team that desperately needs help with their secondary.
Bowman left the Chicago Bears after the 2011 season and ended up with the Minnesota Vikings. Minnesota ended up letting him go, which resulted in Chicago picking him up after being waived to make room for A.J. Jefferson.
