Chicago Bears re-sign cornerback Zack Bowman

USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bears keep one of their own by re-signing cornerback and special teams standout Zack Bowman.

After losing a member of the 2012 roster early this morning, the Chicago Bears decided to keep one of their own by locking up cornerback and special teams standout Zack Bowman. He signed a one year deal to stay in Chicago after garnering interest from at least two teams.

Bowman, who has played a key defensive role in the past for the Bears (six interceptions in 2009) was mainly a special teams player in recent years. After he returned last October following his brief stay in Minnesota, he found a quick home on the Bears special teams.


Bowman ran into some issues with the Lovie Smith regime in 2011, after initially losing his job to Tim Jennings in 2010. With a new defensive coordinator in place, Bowman may have a shot at some defensive reps, and he'll definitely be in the special teams mix again.
