Patriots sign Tashawn Bower to the practice squad and this is some background on his career as a football player.
Tashawn Bower went to LSU from 2013 to 2016, and he had a half-decent college career as a defensive end. Bowers had 22 solo tackles, 60 total tackles, 12 tackles for loss, and 5.5 sacks. Bowers only played seven games in college because of this no one was expecting him to get drafted at all. Overall he was a decent defensive end in college and was hoping to make it to the next level.
Draft Day for Tashawn Bower
Bower never heard his name called on Draft Day. He has something to prove because he was an undrafted free agent. The Vikings picked up Bower in free agency in 2017. He showed he could play with the big boys because he played like a stud in the 2017 preseason game. They were comparing him to Danielle Hunter on the Vikings in 2017. The Vikings released Bower because he was never able to prove to them that he was worth it. He was picked up by New England on November 21, 2019, and I expect him to work hard and try to crack the 53 man roster.
NFL Career Stats
Tashawn Bower has not had a chance to play in an NFL game yet in his career because teams do not see the talent or skill. Anything is possible in New England as long as you can prove you are better than the guy in front of you. Bower will be a great addition to the practice squad, and he may be able to make the roster next season. If Bower works hard, stays focused, and follows the Patriots way, he will have a decent chance to make the Patriots roster next season.
