Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported Tuesday night that Tampa Bay defenders Da'Quan Bowers and Adrian Clayborn could be on their way out. Could the Falcons be interested in both players considering how both played for Raheem Morris, who was the head coach at Tampa Bay from 2009 through 2011 and is now the assistant head coach for the Falcons.
Bowers has started just 10 games in his four years in the NFL in 50 games played. He has only seven sacks in his career. Bowers is 6-4 and weighs 288 pounds. He was a second round pick out of Clemson in 2011.
Clayborn was a first round pick in 2011 out of Iowa. He's a 6-3. 280-pound defensive end. Clayborn played only one game in 2014 as he suffered a biceps injury in September that ended his season. Clayborn missed 13 games in 2012 with a knee injury. Cleveland has been mentioned as a possibility for Clayborn.
With the Falcons needing help at defensive end, Bowers and Clayborn might be possibilities considering they played for Morris.
