Bowman signing adds intrigue to Dolphins secondary

With Cortland Finnegan a recent release and subsequent retiree from the Miami Dolphins, the thought going into the preseason was that youngsters Jamar Taylor and Will Davis would be battling for that second starting cornerback spot opposite Brent Grimes.

And while that may still be the case, it seems they'll now have a bit of company along way.

The Dolphins announced the signing of veteran defensive back Zack Bowman Monday, according to the team's website, a one-year deal that's likely to add some intrigue to the team's secondary. Bowman spent the 2014 season with the New York Giants, tallying two interceptions and a fumble recovery to go along with his 19 tackles.

"Zack is a smart and experienced player who will help bolster our defensive unit along with special teams," General Manager Dennis Hickey said of the move.

The 30-year-old spent six years in Chicago prior to his stint with the Giants, accumulating 10 picks in 73 games.
