Is the path now clear to re-sign Da'Quan Bowers?

Is the path now clear to re-sign Da’Quan Bowers?

C.J. Wilson, the bottom-of-the-roster Bucs cornerback who blew important parts of his hand off celebrating July 4, is stepping away from football.

But Joe is more interested in who will replace Wilson on the roster.

Woody Cummings broke the latest Wilson news for The Tampa Tribune. You can read that here.

It seems Wilson, 25, might try a comeback later this year, but for now he’s retired.

Does this open the door for the Bucs to re-sign Da’Quan Bowers, as Joe explained 10 days ago?

It’ll be interesting to see what direction the Bucs go with this open roster spot. Hey, it’s July, this is what qualifies as intriguing.

Bucs rookies report for training camp on Monday.

    Let’s hope its NOT for Junio Gallette.

    Plus it sounds like he’s really pissed at the saints.

  7. WS99 Says:

    Why would we want a guy with 20 sacks in the last 2 years when we have Larry English and Fatinikum on the roster? – Lovie Smith

    Does anyone know which fingers he did lose???

    Is he permanantly doing the “shocker” for the rest of his life??

  11. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    We sign Junior Galette & Trade for MLB Mychal Kendricks. An this defense would be raw, with all young kats too.

  12. StPeteBucsFan Says:

    But is Junior Galette better than Daquan Bowers?

    Remember the movie “Something About Mary”? That’s me right now guys.
    Just effing with you.

    Hard to think of a DE who is not better than Daquan. Using that old Sam Wyche comedy device….Daquan may be injured and lacking talent, but at least he’s lazy and comes in out of shape.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    No sense getting our hopes up!

  14. Buc1987 Says:

    lol SPBF

  15. Dewey Selmon Says:

    And somewhere Leonard Johnson’s smile just got bigger.

  16. Bucsalltheway Says:

    @realist he blew off his index and middle finger. He literally would look like a ninja turtle playing football so a comeback wouldn’t be in his plans. Unless we want a freak show. Imagine the highlights on espn “man with eight fingers gets a pick 6” they might call it a pick 8 when it comes to him smh

  17. mike Says:

    the roster spot will be filled with Freeman! Glad #5 jersey is availible

  18. The Buc Realist Says:

    Freeman Fired again!!! guess it was more than just a coach!!!

  19. LUVMYBUCS Says:

    Thanks for the good laugh StPeteBucsFan

  20. Buc1987 Says:

    Josh lost his spot to McLeod Bethel-Thompson….wtf?

  21. The Buc Realist Says:


    Its Friday which means trash pickup day at Dophin stadium!!!

    Good bye to bad rubbish!!!

  22. BucFan20 Says:

    Another Bucs franchise QB down the drain. Only this one really went down the drain!

  23. Joe Says:

    Its Friday which means trash pickup day at Dophin stadium!!!


  24. Buc-A-New Says:

    Maybe I can earn said roster spot.

    Attorney says person in beach brawl video is not Junior Galette

    Ralph Whalen, the attorney for Junior Galette, told Eyewitness Sports Director Doug Mouton that the person in the video is not Galette.

    “The thing was posted earlier on the web site and they took it down because they were convinced it wasn’t Junior.

    The Video has been posted for over 2yrs by the way (May 25th, 2013)

  26. BuccaneerBonzai Says:

    If Junior Galette has a long history of injury, he’ll be signed by Jason Licht, who has outright said that this year’s free agency is all him.

  27. BucPuck Says:

    I would sign Galette in a heartbeat.

  28. Fsuking Says:

    Let’s just sign Galette, Freeney, Bowers, and Umenyoria and see what happens. Heck while we’re at it I think Reggie White is sitting by the phone.
