Over a month ago, Da’Quan Bowers avoided jail time on gun charges stemming from the February 18 incident at LaGurdia Airport. After much speculation from fans and several reports on whether Bowers will face a suspension from the league, TheBayCave.com has learned today that the investigation is still pending on whether or not the Buccaneers’ defensive end will be suspended, per NFL spokesman. After letting defensive end Michael Bennett go and test the free agent market, Buccaneers’ general manager Mark Dominik let it be known that they are confident with Da’Quan Bowers starting full-time opposite the line from Adrian Clayborn. At the time of Dominik’s comments, Bowers was just four days into the uncertainty of any jail time. The league has had the Bowers case since day one of the incident. Since being exonerated on April 11, the league has stated they would immediately begin reviewing all facts from the case. Many suspect that he did nothing wrong to constitute a suspension. But every clause in his contract is under review and the league will determine if the incident violates the personal conduct policy. The severity of a suspension, if any, will be based on the incident itself and the outcome — which was officially classified as disorderly conduct and sent away with fines. It is possible that if no suspension is handed down, a fine is still an option. Since the initial charges were reduced, I still do not expect the league to suspend Da’Quan Bowers. But it’s up to the league and they may feel there is something in the case that merits a suspension. The post League investigation still pending in Bowers incident appeared first on The Bay Cave.
