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.
