It’s been a bad past few months for free agent offensive lineman Michael Bowie. After being released by the Giants in August following a domestic assault charge, the 26-year-old has now been suspended by the NFL for six games for the incident should he catch on with another team, reports to Field Yates of ESPN.com (Twitter link).
Bowie was the Seahawks seventh round pick back in 2013, and actually played in nine games in his rookie season. However, the lineman hasn’t appeared in a game since that time. Bowie signed with New York on futures contract before the start of training camp, but was immediately released after those domestic violence charges were brought upon him.
The lineman’s career had already been in-flux prior to the incident given that he was projected as the team’s third string tackle. Now it appears even more unlikely that Bowie will get another opportunity to make a career turnaround following this latest news.
