One of the few pass rushers left in free agency is now off the market. Former Miami Dolphin DE David Bowens has signed a three-year contract with the New York Jets.

Bowens was being courted by the Miami Dolphins, Carolina Panthers, New England Patriots and the Jets.

Miami was offering a one year deal worth $1.5-million to keep Bowens, who wanted a long term deal.

Bowens signed today with the Jets for $6.1-million over three years. The deal includes a guarantee of $700,000 the first year and incentive clauses which can add an additional $2-million to the contract.

Bowens is excited to reunite with coach Jim Herrmann, the Jets' linebacker coach. Hermann spent 20 years as the defensive coordinator at the University of Michigan, where he coached Bowens.
