Da’Quan Bowers May Stay

March 7th, 2015

If one is to believe a sports yakker from Houston, the Da’Quan Bowers era in Tampa Bay may not be ending soon. No, really allegedly.

Jayson Braddock, a Houston-based voice from KBME-AM 790, Twittered that the Texans are hot and heavy for Bowers but the free agent defensive lineman is wanted by the Bucs.

Color Joe skeptical that Bowers will stay. If you were Bowers, wouldn’t you want to play for a winner for a change (Houston was 9-7 without a quarterback and without Jadeveon Clowney)? Plus, he would play along side J.J. Watt.

Given Bowers’ history with the Bucs, general manager Jason Licht should be very conservative with whatever he might entice Bowers.

    Excuse me but—–WHYYYY the F*k–would you resign this guy?

  3. Buccfan37 Says:

    Keep on hoping Bowers becomes something he has’nt shown here yet. Maybe he is just a late late bloomer.

    Just because other teams are interested in Bowers doesn’t mean that we need to be… Bowers is a waste of time, money and resources… Let’s please move on…

  7. Matt Says:

    Bowers is a perfect 5 technique in a 3-4 and would really blossom in the Texans D. I hope we keep him cheap but realistically he needs a fresh start and will probably get it. And we will look stupid next year when he tears it up.

  8. beeric Says:

    What Matt said. There’s a reason other teams want him.

  9. Uranus Johnson Says:

    At one point this guy was projected as the number one overall NFL draft pick but then something happened. The talent is there – or used to be – but is the desire? Considering the number of holes on this team dumping Bowers despite his to this point lousy performance may not be advisable. If nothing else he can provide some depth until next year’s draft.

    He’s just an expensive F—‘n BOAT ANCHOR

  11. Chris Says:

    I wish Bowers would punch each of you idiots in your faces.

  12. jfat Says:

    He played pretty well spelling GMac. Not saying we should break the bank to keep him but he is depth that we can’t exactly toss to the curb. Not everybody is a probowler, but this guy can fill a role at least.

    if he’s cheap – fine keep him – if other teams want to overpay this loafer – then by all means have fun with that. I would much rather see Clayborn come back than Bowers. At least Adrian is willing to work his butt off. Bowers doesn’t care enough to even get or stay in football shape during the season.

    developed a little bit under Lovie Smith and now a few other teams want him, that’s what happens when you are coached up. Nobody wanted him before but if he goes somewhere else and beast out fans on here will blame Smith. But Bowers will forever be grateful to Smith for figuring out how to use him and not giving up on him and getting him paid.

  16. mikeh Says:

    the only good thing he has done on this team is his bench technique meaning sitting on it! see you later.

  17. The original "Kevin" Says:

    He was doing better on the inside. Good depth

  18. bucs4lyfe Says:

    If he’s smart chase the money bowers, you’ll only get it once, he’ll be a Michael Johnson type free agent signing and it won’t take that team long to find out he doesn’t have the drive or heart to even attempt to be great. Foolish teams including the bucs looking to sign a guy whose either been injured or fat and out of shape every offseason of his career. Lovie and licht haven’t appeared to learn anything yet

  19. ChessMaster Says:

    Let them have him.

  20. MadMax Says:

    No! JUST NO!!

  21. ddneast Says:

    Bowers was a speed rusher from the left side on the line at Gaines Adams U but two knee operations have diminished his burst and speed. Tackles in the NFL aren’t overwhelmed by his speed since they are just as fast.

  22. CalBucsFan Says:

    Other than the excess at any one position, until you have someone better you keep what you have, getting rid of Penn and Joseph on the OL last year proves that.

    3 coaches in 4 yrs. hasn’t been beneficial for any of the players still on the roster through it all. But other than McCoy, who else has elevated his game and stood out over the same period of time? I dare anyone to name more than one.

    Give him a second year under Lovie and Frasier with an incentive laden 1-yr. contract and build depth somewhere else this year, then kick him to the curb next year if he doesn’t meet those goals.
