Free agent DL Stephen Bowen has retired from the NFL after 10 seasons.
Bowen entered the league in 2006 as an UDFA out of Hofstra and spent the first five years of his career with the Cowboys before joining the Redskins in 2010 and becoming a full-time starter in D.C. Primarily a run stopper, Bowen recorded 12.5 career sacks, with six coming in 2010. He played for the Jets in 2015. Wed, Jun 1, 2016 09:44:00 AM

Jets agreed to terms with DE Stephen Bowen, formerly of the Redskins.

Limited to eight games by a knee injury last season, Bowen played 243 largely-ineffective snaps. He notched zero sacks, and has only one over the past three seasons. He's primarily a run stopper. One week shy of his 31st birthday, Bowen is a pure depth signing for Gang Green, and won't be assured of a spot on the 53-man roster.

Redskins released DE Stephen Bowen.

The combined savings from the Barry Cofield and Bowen cuts is nearly $10 million; releasing Bowen saved $5.5 million alone. Parting with Bowen was a no-brainer, as he was a total flop as a 2011 free agent signing and has battled myriad knee problems. The 31-year-old won't be coveted in free agency.

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim believes DE Stephen Bowen could be released this offseason.

Bowen appeared in just eight games (three starts) this year due to injury. He has an $8 million cap hit in 2015 and will need to take a pay-cut to return. Washington can save $5.5 million by cutting Bowen, but would leave $2.5 million in dead money.

Redskins activated DE Stephen Bowen off the reserve/PUP list.

Bowen escaped without any setbacks after increasing his practice reps on Friday. He will play against the Titans, but will likely see limited reps. The Redksins have yet to announce a corresponding move.

Redskins placed DE Stephen Bowen (knee) on reserve/PUP.

Bowen, 30, is eight months removed from microfracture surgery. The Redskins will hope he can contribute as a reserve end when eligible -- after the first six games of the season.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 01:32:00 PM

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) remains questionable for Week 1.

Bowen is eight months removed from microfracture surgery. He agreed to a pay-cut earlier this month, and is a strong candidate for reserve/PUP, which would cost him the first six games of the season.
Thu, Aug 21, 2014 02:31:00 PM

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen has agreed to renegotiate his contract.

Bowen had a 2014 cap charge of $7 million and was due $4.4 million in base salary. The move likely secures his roster spot. Eight months removed from microfracture surgery, Bowen has yet to practice in training camp.
Fri, Aug 15, 2014 06:00:00 PM

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) said he is optimistic he will be cleared to practice sometime in the next two weeks.

The Redskins showed faith in Bowen's recovery by placing him on the active/PUP list instead of cutting him and his $7 million cap charge. Bowen is currently penciled in as the Washington's No. 4 end behind Jason Hatcher, Chris Baker, and top reserve Jarvis Jenkins.

Redskins placed DE Stephen Bowen (knee) on active/PUP.

It's not a surprise as Bowen is 30 years old and less than eight months removed from microfracture surgery. The Redskins appear optimistic though, as they've kept him on the roster despite a $7 million cap charge.
Wed, Jul 23, 2014 12:52:00 PM

ESPN Redskins blogger John Keim "wouldn't be surprised" if DE Stephen Bowen (knee) opens training camp on the PUP list.

Bowen is recovering from December microfracture surgery. He was held out of all spring practices and could miss extended time in camp. Currently penciled in as the Redskins' No. 4 end, Bowen needs to prove he's healthy to secure his roster spot. Washington can save $1.98 million by cutting Bowen, but would leave $5.04 million in dead money.

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) sat out all spring practices, and may not be ready for a "major role" once training camp starts.

Bowen is a 30-year-old trying to recover from microfracture surgery, a tall feat for even the most physically fit. He's currently penciled in as the Redskins' No. 4 end, behind starters LE Chris Baker and RE Jason Hatcher and top reserve Jarvis Jenkins. Bowen's due $4.5 million and may not be long for the roster.

Redskins DE Stephen Bowen (knee) expects to be ready for the start of training camp.

Bowen, 30, underwent microfracture in December. Whether he's on the Redskins by the time training camp rolls around remains to be seen. Bowen doesn't have a clear path to a starting job, is recovering from major surgery, and is owed $4.5 million in 2014. He's currently running at 80 percent of his weight.

CSN Washington suggests Redskins RE Stephen Bowen could be a cap casualty.

Bowen underwent microfracture surgery in December and is out until mid-summer at soonest. There is some question about his availability for training camp. Turning 30 next month, Bowen came in 40th among 45 qualifiers in Pro Football Focus' 3-4 defensive end ratings. He's owed $4.5 million in 2014.
Mon, Feb 3, 2014 04:11:00 PM

Redskins RE Stephen Bowen (knee, injured reserve) underwent microfracture surgery Tuesday night and will be sidelined six months.

The Redskins placed Bowen on I.R. last week, and coach Mike Shanahan said the team was determining whether the soon-to-be 30-year-old end would need the operation. Bowen will be pushing it to be ready for training camp; microfracture is one of the tougher surgeries to come back from. His age isn't helping him.
