Bowen Agrees To Terms With Redskins

Looks like Cowboys free agent defensive end Stephen Bowen is heading to the rival Redskins.

Teams aren't announcing impending signings until Friday afternoon, but Bowen's agent group announced his decision on Twitter. Reports say he has agreed to a five-year contract with the Redskins. The Cowboys have made no comment.

Re-signing Bowen was one of the Cowboys' top priorities at the start of free agency. He started eight games for an injured Marcus Spears last season, recording 1.5 sacks and 12 quarterback pressures.

Without Bowen, Spears and fellow free agent Jason Hatcher, the Cowboys were noticeably thin at defensive end during Thursday's morning walkthrough. Second-year vet Sean Lissemore worked with the first team opposite Igor Olshansky.

The club is looking to add at least one defensive end, including possibly re-signing Spears and/or Hatcher. Green Bay's Cullen Jenkins, who had received interest from the Redskins, is also a possibility.
