Bowers re-signed with the Buccaneers on Tuesday,Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The 2011 second-round pick will be on his third tour of duty with the team that originally drafted him. Bowers' latest signing was prompted by the ankle injury suffered by defensive tackle Akeem Spence in Week 14. Bowers generally underwhelmed during four seasons, accumulating 66 tackles, including 13 for loss, seven sacks, two fumble recoveries and six passes defensed over 50 games. Still only 25 years old, Bowers figures to receive modest playing time in Thursday night's road tilt versus the Rams, and has offered only marginal IDP value over his career.
