Da'Quan Bowers: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)It's not clear what sort of sources Holder might be relying upon, but he's not holding back on his words here, so he appears quite confident in the info he's relaying. It's also not clear what "more reasonable" translates into as far as the legal penalties go, because Burress faced a rather drastic 3.5-year minimum sentence for his offense, which resulted in a 20-month guilty plea at a lesser charge. Bowers' status is very much still in limbo, but this news is still good for him.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
As Tampa Bay's second-round draft choice in 2011, Bowers made just 25 tackles (22 solo) and 1.5 sacks during his rookie campaign. The 22-year-old will be out indefinitely with a torn achilles tendon after starting 10 games and appearing in all 16 in 2011. He hasn't been placed on IR yet so there is an outside chance he makes an apperance in 2012 but its tough blow as Bowers was scheduled start at DE in 2012 for the Bucs.
Bowers could be the steal of the 2011 Draft if he is healthy. He at one time was considered the possible No.1 overall pick for the 2011 draft but slipped to the 2nd Round. due to major injury concerns. If those injury issues don't prove to be true or at least not that serious then Bowers could start at DE right away and make a lot of team sorry they passed on him.
