Bucs defensive end Da’quan Bowers was in a New York court room today on gun charges from his incident back on February 18. All went well for Bowers as his charges were reduced to fines.   Da’Quan Bowers gun charges reduced to disorderly conduct violation, per his attorney. Fined $250 with a $120 surcharge. — Roy Cummings (@RCummingsTBO) April 11, 2013   Bowers attorney says “Case over.” Sealed case. Says DA’s office did fair invetigation and came to justifiable conclusion — Roy Cummings (@RCummingsTBO) April 11, 2013 Da’Quan Bowers was facing a minimum of 3.5 years in prison if he was convicted. The Bucs were going to rely heavily on Bowers this season after allowing Michael Bennett to sign elsewhere this offseason. If he stays healthy, this will be a win-win for the Buccaneers and the 22-year old defensive end. But the question still remains, will the league review the case for a possible suspension? In a simple one line answer, NFL Vice President of Communications Greg Aiello said, “Yes, we will review the facts.” While the league does their due diligence on the case, I don’t expect Bowers to miss any games. Depending on how the personal conduct clauses are worded in his contract, if any. The post Da’Quan Bowers avoids jail, NFL will review case appeared first on The Bay Cave.

  • let him play. Hopefully he has learned some important messages at his young age and will go on to a successful and trouble free career.
  • Suspend him. Gun violation, nuff said... He should go to jail, dumb azz.
