Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end DaQuan Bowers is promising to have the biggest year of his career after underwhelming in his first three seasons.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end DaQuan Bowers is nearing the end of his rookie contract, and his career has not panned as he or the Buccaneers anticipated.
His career of three seasons has included just 5.5 sacks, and the former second-round draft pick has battled injuries throughout his career.
Bowers himself knows that he is on the roster bubble, and he is vowing to have the best year of his career. “I owe it to this organization; I owe it to this team. I’ve been here long enough and haven’t really been that player that I know I can be. So I think it’s about time I really put forth the effort to be that player I know I’m capable of being,” Bowers told the Tampa Tribune.
The defensive end was once considered a No. 1 overall pick before falling in the draft due to a knee injury. Bowers may find himself released if he does not pick his production though.
The Buccaneers are considered to be a team on the rise, and Bowers having a big year would make that even more of a reality.
