|David Bowens (#6) played defensive end for Michigan|
for a couple seasons before running into academic trouble.
This is a blast from the past. Cleveland Browns defensive end David Bowens had his best career game on Saturday. Bowens only had 1 tackle in Sunday's victory over the New Orleans Saints, but he made 2 interceptions, both of which were returned for touchdowns. One interception was returned 64 yards for the TD, while the other was taken back 30 yards for the score. Bowens has played 12 seasons in the NFL for the Broncos, Packers, Dolphins, Jets, and Browns. Altogether, he has 294 tackles, 38 sacks, 8 forced fumbles, and 4 interceptions. Bowens struggled with academics and personal issues as a Wolverine, although he totaled 12 sacks in his final season in Ann Arbor (1996) before transferring to Western Illinois and playing out his college eligibility.
Honorable mention: Defensive tackle Alan Branch, currently of the Arizona Cardinals, had 5 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble, and 4 quarterback hurries in Sunday's 22-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
