Jason Licht: Da'Quan Bowers needs to prove to us that he wants to be on this team

Jason Licht isn't satisfied with Da'Quan Bowers' production so far. Jason Licht appeared on 620 WDAE with Steve Duemig yesterday, answering questions and discussing a variety of topics. Most of it was fairly generic, as these interviews tend to be, but one thing did stand out to me: he called out Da'Quan Bowers. "The one player that we hope shows up in shape and proves to us that he wants to be a football player is Da'Quan Bowers," Licht said. "We need him to show up. He needs to prove to us that he wants to be on this team. And we hope that he does, and we're rooting for him." Last year,...

On Sunday morning, Farrah Franklin was arrested for disorderly conduct, according to TMZ. Who's Farrah Franklin, and why should you care? She's the one Destiny's Child member everyone's forgotten about, and you should care because Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers flew her out to Myrtle Beach. Apparently, Bowers was with his college teammate Ricky Sapp, going out into town to blow off steam before they had...

Da'Quan Bowers "not 100 percent" after offseason knee surgery

Da'Quan Bowers has been a perennial tease for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but injuries have stopped him from producing. And now another injury has stopped him from being in shape in OTAs. The eternal story of the injured NFL player: so much talent, so little production, so much disappointment. That's what Da'Quan Bowers' career has epitomized so far, and it doesn't look like it's changing. The fourth-year defensive end confirmed to WXBT-AM that he had offseason knee surgery, and noted that that was why he was not fully in shape. Bowers' own words, via JoeBucsFan: "I'm definitely not a 100...
