Dolphins signed CB Zackary Bowman, formerly of the Giants.

30-year-old Bowman is best suited to run down kicks on special teams, but he'll have a chance to compete for a starting job with the Dolphins. Jamar Taylor is currently penciled in opposite Brent Grimes.

Free agent CB Zackary Bowman is visiting the Dolphins Monday.

Bowman appeared in all 16 games for the Giants last season and all 16 for the Bears before that. The seven-year veteran reserve may actually have a chance to start if he signs with the Dolphins, as Jamar Taylor is currently penciled in opposite Brent Grimes.

Giants CB Zackary Bowman (abdominal) has been released from the hospital.

He was just battling the flu, and should be ready to rock for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Bowman is stepping in as a starter opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after Prince Amukamara tore his biceps in Week 9. It's a major downgrade for the G-Men.

Giants CB Zackary Bowman was sent to the hospital on Thursday with abdominal pain.

It's unclear what the issue is. The Giants cannot afford to lose Bowman, as he's set to slide into the starting lineup opposite Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after Prince Amukamara suffered a torn biceps on Monday.

The Newark Star-Ledger labeled Giants CB Zackary Bowman the "biggest surprise" of spring practices.

Bowman, 29, was signed in March after spending the first six seasons of his career with the Bears. He made 23 career starts and picked off ten passes. Beat writer Jordan Raanan thinks a transition out of Chicago's zone scheme into a press-man scheme could do wonders for 6-foot-1, 196-pound Bowman. The Giants have one of the deepest cornerback depth charts in the league.

Giants signed CB Zackary Bowman, formerly of the Bears.

Bowman, 29, wound up playing too much on defense in Chicago last season due to front-line injuries. He is a fine reserve corner and special teamer. Giants GM Jerry Reese has been extremely aggressive addressing his secondary, signing Bowman, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond, and Quintin Demps, while also re-signing Stevie Brown and Trumaine McBride.

The Giants are close to a one-year deal with free agent CB Zack Bowman.

Bowman made seven starts as a reserve corner last season, finishing with 49 tackles and three interceptions. He would compete for snaps in sub-packages if signed, and is also capable of filling in at safety. The Giants have been aggressive in upgrading their secondary, signing Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Walter Thurmond, and Quintin Demps this offseason. The Bears also remain interested in bringing Bowman back.

The Bears are interested in re-signing free agent CB Zack Bowman.

Bowman saw extensive playing time as a reserve corner last season, making seven starts and finishing with three interceptions. He isn't a priority and is expected to test the open market, but could be brought back if the Bears fail to re-sign Charles Tillman. Chicago currently lacks a legit No. 1 corner.
Fri, Feb 28, 2014 05:16:00 PM

Bears re-signed CB Zackary Bowman to a one-year contract.

A fifth-round pick out of Nebraska in 2008, Bowman has never developed into a reliable cover corner, but he's carved out a legitimate career on special teams. The 28-year-old racked up 11 tackles across 11 games in Chicago last season.
Fri, Mar 15, 2013 01:37:00 PM

Vikings waived CB Zackary Bowman and OT Patrick Brown.

Coming off a rough 2011 for the Bears, Bowman was made expendable after the Vikings acquired A.J. Jefferson from the Cardinals. Bowman will look to latch on elsewhere as a down-ballot corner and special teamer.
Sat, Sep 1, 2012 04:06:00 PM

Vikings CB Zackary Bowman worked mostly with the third team during minicamps and OTAs.

After falling out of favor in Chicago last season, Bowman is squarely on Minnesota's roster bubble. The four-year veteran will have to prove he can contribute on special teams and hold his own in camp against third-round CB Josh Robinson.

Vikings CB Zackary Bowman's one-year deal is worth just $615,000, and does not include a signing bonus.

It's flier money, and a sign that Bowman isn't assured of a roster spot. He made only one start for the Bears in 2011, playing just 109 snaps on defense. If everything goes right for the Vikings, Bowman won't be higher than fourth on the depth chart if he makes the team.
Sat, Mar 31, 2012 12:27:00 PM

Vikings signed CB Zackary Bowman to a one-year contract.

It's believed to be a non-guaranteed deal worth the league minimum. Bowman has been signed away from the rival Bears, though he made just one start in 2011, where the majority of his snaps came on special teams. He was a 12-game starter in 2009, however, and provides veteran insurance for a Vikings' secondary that was decimated by injury and suspension last season.
Mon, Mar 26, 2012 09:28:00 AM

A pair of NFC teams have reportedly expressed interest in free agent CB Zack Bowman.

The report is likely agent-driven. Bowman isn't going to be a hot ticket on the open market after limited playing time as a reserve and special teamer the past two years. This could be a sign that he's planning to leave Chicago, however.
