PRO:
Now in his fifth season, Stephen Bowen has settled in as a dependable pass rusher in nickel situations and as a regular in the defensive line rotation for the Dallas Cowboys. He uses his intelligence and technique to give Dallas a serious pass rushing threat off the bench, and for the third straight season, established personal highs for tackles (31), sacks (3.0) and pressures (33 - tied for third on the team) in 2009. His continued improvement in each of the previous three seasons should give Bowen an even greater role in the defensive line rotation after originally making the Cowboys practice squad as an undrafted free agent out of Hofstra in 2006. He moved to the active roster at the mid-way point of his rookie season and has remained a fixture ever since.
