Zack Bowman DB CHI 11 Days
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 depth at cornerback behind Tim Jennings. Nickel CB Kelvin Hayden was re-signed to a one-year deal on Friday.

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.

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.

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.

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.

CB Zack Bowman was beaten for three touchdowns in the Bears' Week 16 loss to the Packers.
Bowman made a bad impression in his first start of the season. Yes, Aaron Rodgers shreds everyone. But the Packers were clearly picking on Bowman. The Bears haven't found an answer opposite Charles Tillman as normal starter Tim Jennings was demoted ahead of this game.
