Bowens lined up with the first-team defense at left end, the spot normally occupied by Ogunleye and looked very, very quick off the snap.
We've said this many times about Bowens, but if he could ever stay healthy he could be a major factor on defense.
Chester, meanwhile, showed up after having lost abot 40 pounds since February.
Chester revealed that he ballooned up to about 380 after the season after finishing last year at 350. The Dolphins inserted a weight clause in Chester's contract, and he says he's feeling much better and is ready to have a big year.
Tim Bowens, on the flip side, looked way overweight, but Coach Dave Wannstedt said he wasn't worried in the least because Timbo was moving around well and there's a lot of time left before the start of the season.
In the secondary, Madison and Surtain were giving a clinic out there during team drills. And when he wasn't blanketing receivers, Madison was talking time to teach fourth-round pick Will Poole the ins and outs of coverage.
Poole, by all accounts, was impressive and Wannstedt said he would be the dime back if the season started today. Heady stuff.
Wannstedt also praised newcomer Reggie Howard for his ability to pick up the defense, but what we saw was Howard was getting beat regularly during drills. In fact, the only guy who was having more problems in coverage was "street free agent" Mesene Louisdor, a guy who's got no shot to make the roster.
