Miami Dolphins cut then re-sign Zack Bowman

Published Add your comment

The Miami Dolphins have an incredibly interesting and exciting season ahead of them as they head in to the 2015 NFL campaign.

The Dolphins brought in wide receivers Kenny Stills and Greg Jennings, as well as signing tight end Jordan Cameron to give Ryan Tannehill some help, while the defense got a huge boost with the addition of Ndamukong Suh. The signings haven't stopped however.

On Sunday, the Dolphins released veteran cornerback Zack Bowman. According to ProFootballTalk, they’ve already brought him back.

Bowman's Back

Originally signed by the Dolphins in April, it’s not entirely clear why the Dolphins cut him and then re-signed him. There’s a chance that it was the first example of the 54-man roster trick, in which a team releases a vested veteran with the wink-nod understanding that he will be brought back.

Before the trade deadline, any player with four or more years of service doesn’t have to pass through waivers, and it seems like the Dolphins have taken advantage of this.

As of Sunday afternoon Bowman was officially off the roster. Now, he’s back on it, completing what is a perplexing period to say the very least.

A fifth-round pick in the 2008 draft by the Chicago Bears, Bowman spent four years in Chi-town, before moving to Minnesota, returning to Chicago for a season and a half before spending 2014 with the New York Giants.

Bowman is listed on the Dolphins' depth chart as a third-string cornerback, behind Jamar Taylor and Brice McCain.
