CB Zack Bowman signs one-year, minimum deal with Vikings

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Former Bears cornerback Zack Bowman will see plenty of his former teammates next season.

Bowman signed a one-year, minimum contract with the Minnesota Vikings, a league source confirmed.

ESPN first reported the news earlier today.

A fifth-round pick out of Nebraska in 2008, the Bears gave him ample opportunities to earn a starting spot opposite Charles Tillman. In 2009, he started 12 games and intercepted six passes. But he lost his standing the next season, and he's struggled to assert himself since.

The Vikings didn't guarantee Bowman any money, as part of his contract, and they're giving him a chance to compete for playing time. They also expect him to be a contributor on special teams.

Its to bad Zack Bowman never panned for the Bears, he looked like he was on his way to becoming a pretty solid corner after the 2009 season when he had the 6 picks, but after that, the guy just never got better. Bowman had nice size to, other than Charles Tillman, all of the other corners in Chicago are under 6 foot. Its pretty obvious with Bowman and Corey Graham gone, Chicago will address the corner position at some point in the draft, maybe early? I didn't think Bowman was coming back.

The player I still can't believe might not be coming back is defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, I thought he played pretty good for the Bears. I see on the twitter Okoye is gonna be visiting the Bengals after the owners meeting. Its starting to look like the Bears aren't gonna be bringing him back. You think they would have resigned him by now? With no Okoye coming back DT becomes a need, DE is a bigger need, but another pure undertackle to back Henry Melton would be nice? Maybe this Jordan Miller kid, a rookie free agent out of southern last spring, is someone they see something in? We'll know more after the draft GO BEARS!!
