Who among us didn’t think Adarius Bowman wasn’t a first round pick after putting up 300 yards receiving against Kansas in 2006? We know the story from there: bad 40-time. Weed test positive. No draft pick. CFL.
Now Bowman is an afterthought mention in a CFL trade!
Maple Ridge native and Canadian Football League defensive back Brady Browne was traded Thursday to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
Browne was included in a package deal that saw offensive lineman Dan Goodspeed moved to Saskatchewan in exchanged for receiver Adarius Bowman and Canadian offensive lineman Jean Francois Morin-Roberge. A number of late-round and conditional draft picks were also swapped in the trade.
Last year he caught 23 passes for 358 yards and three touchdowns in the CFL. One would think he still has the talent to play in the NFL. (Maybe the Tulsa Talons? I’m sure he could sell a KIA) But its pretty sad to see a relatively nice guy (from all I’ve heard) make a few bad decisions and end up in a league that even Canadians don’t care about.
