Bowman signed a reserve/futures contract with the Chargers on Monday, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports.
Bowman was waived by the Saints at roster cutdowns in September and was trying to make the team as a long snapper. The 23-year-old will likely be more involved at tight end in the Chargers' offseason program, but the versatility is valuable nonetheless.
Bowman was waived by the Saints on Friday, Mark Inabinett of AL.com reports.
Bowman was trying to make it as a long snapper with the Saints. He's now free to sign elsewhere.
Bowman (knee) saw just 16 snaps in Sunday's preseason win over the Chargers, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Bowman is looking to bounce back in 2017 from the knee injury that prematurely ended his 2016 campaign. His limited snaps in Sunday's preseason contest indicate that he's not very high up on the depth chart, as he played in 12 offensive snaps and four special teams snaps.
Bowman, an 2016 undrafted free agent out of South Alabama, will look to impress in an already crowded tight end field. However, his most likely path to the teams' final roster will be as a long-snapper. He missed the majority of the the 2016 season after tearing his ACL, and it is unclear how far along he is in his recovery.
