Zack Bowman signs with Giants

Following his most productive season since 2009, Zack Bowman has found a new home. Bowman signed with the Giants, the team announced Monday. 

All six of Bowman’s NFL seasons have been with the Bears. In 2013, he played in every game and started seven in place of Charles Tillman. Bowman had 48 tackles, eight passes defensed, three interceptions and one returned for a touchdown.

In ’09, Bowman started 12 games and had 10 passes defensed and six interceptions. 

The Bears re-signed cornerbacks Tim Jennings, Charles Tillman and Kelvin Hayden, and they also have Isaiah Frey. Still, look for corner to remain a priority to find a player to develop behind Tillman, who signed a one-year deal. Plus, the Bears were fortunate to have Bowman as an insurance policy for Tillman last year and could use another option for 2014.

In New York, Bowman will have his work cut out for him. The Giants have already signed corners Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond this offseason. Corey Webster and Prince Amukamara are the starters.

Bowman is the first former Bear to sign with a team this offseason that is not on the Bears’ 2014 schedule.
