Raiders signed CB Ras-I Dowling off their practice squad.

Dowling has spent 2014 on the Raiders' practice squad after being waived by the Jets during final cuts. The No. 33 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Dowling has not played in a regular season game since 2012.

Raiders signed CB Ras-I Dowling to the practice squad.

The No. 33 overall pick of the 2011 draft was waived by the Jets at final cuts. Dowling didn't appear in a regular-season game in 2013.

The Jets "have been impressed" with CB Ras-I Dowling.

Dowling is working with the second team at OTAs, but will push for a sub-package role if Kyle Wilson continues to struggle. The Jets want to use Dimitri Patterson at slot corner, so one of Dowling, Darrin Walls, or Dexter McDougle could see snaps outside. Dowling has been a bust since being the 33rd overall pick in 2011. The 26-year-old is a reclamation project for coach Rex Ryan.

Jets signed CB Ras-I Dowling to a reserve/future contract.

Dowling has been a complete bust since the Patriots made him the 33rd overall pick in the 2011 draft, appearing in nine career games and enduring countless injuries. Rex Ryan is a master at getting the most out of defenders, however, and Dowling has ability. He will spend the offseason program as a Jet.

Jets signed CB Ras-I Dowling to their practice squad.

The No. 33 pick of the 2011 draft, Dowling has been out of football since being waived by the Patriots this preseason.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 02:50:00 PM

Free agent CBs Ras-I Dowling and Curtis Marsh worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

It's an indication Dee Milliner (undisclosed) could be in danger of missing Week 8. The No. 33 pick of the 2011 draft, Dowling has been on the open market since the Patriots waived him in August. He worked out for the Texans last month.

Free agent CB Ras-I Dowling worked out for the Texans.

It's Dowling's first known workout since getting cut by the Patriots in late-August. Texans starting corners Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson both did not practice Wednesday. Free agent CBs Jalil Brown and Myron Lewis also joined Dowling, the No. 33 overall pick in the 2011 draft, at the workout.

Former Patriots CB Ras-I Dowling passed through waivers unclaimed Thursday.

The No. 33 overall pick in the 2011 draft is now a free agent. It's not surprising he went unclaimed, though some national media pundits are shocked simply because of his aforementioned draft status. Dowling was injury-prone at Virginia. That carried over into the pros. He played in just nine games for the Pats.

Patriots waived CB Ras-I Dowling.

The No. 33 pick in the 2011 draft, Dowling was considered on the bubble going into camp, and didn't show enough to keep his spot. It's rare for a team to pull the plug on such a high pick after only two years, but Dowling left the Pats little choice. Injury prone in college, Dowling has lived up to his reputation in the pros, appearing in just 9-of-32 possible games. His play has been decidedly ordinary in 176 career snaps. Dowling's draft pedigree could earn him a look on waivers, but it's possible he's already viewed as damaged goods.

ESPN Boston considers Patriots CB Ras-I Dowling on the roster bubble.

Even with Alfonzo Dennard facing legal troubles, Dowling isn't considered a lock for the 53-man roster. The 33rd overall pick in 2011, Dowling has struggled with injuries and effectiveness in his first two seasons. He needs to put together a strong training camp to avoid being cut.

ESPN Boston considers 2013 a "make-or-break" year for Patriots CB Ras-I Dowling.

Injury prone at Virginia, Dowling has stayed on the shelf in the pros, tearing his quad last October after rupturing a tendon in his leg as a rookie and undergoing offseason hip surgery. Dowling was the 33rd pick in the 2011 draft. He's been an utter bust through two seasons. He may have to display special teams value to win a spot behind Aqib Talib, Alfonzo Dennard, and Kyle Arrington.

Patriots placed CB Ras-I Dowling on injured reserve with a torn quadriceps muscle, ending his season.

It's the second time in Dowling's two-year career that his season will end prematurely on I.R. The 33rd overall pick in the 2011 draft, Dowling was also injury prone at Virginia. He may have to battle for a roster spot in 2013.
Fri, Oct 26, 2012 02:31:00 PM

Patriots CB Ras-I Dowling injured his quad in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Dowling went down in the fourth quarter and never returned. He's the Patriots' fourth corner.
Sun, Oct 21, 2012 08:03:00 PM

The Patriots have removed Ras-I Dowling as their primary nickel corner.

Dowling saw extensive playing time in the season opener, but has since been limited to special teams. The Patriots are going with Kyle Arrington as the starter opposite Devin McCourty in their base defense, with Sterling Moore moving to right cornerback in nickel and dime packages.
