Former PSU TE Nick Bowers Signs with Bengals’ Practice Squad

The Cincinnati Bengals have signed former Penn State tight end Nick Bowers to their practice squad.

After leaving Penn State, Bowers signed with the Las Vegas Raiders as an un-drafted free agent. He hung around Vegas for two seasons, signing an exclusive-rights tenure this past April.

Bowers made the Raiders’s 53-man roster last season, but couldn’t do the same in 2022. Now, he’s a Bengal.

Hayden Hurst is the team’s No. 1 tight end, and behind Hurst are Drew Sample and Mitchell Wilcox.

Bowers played tight end at Penn State from 2015-19 and Kittanning High School in Western Pennsylvania before that. Bowers ended his college career with 17 catches for 279 yards and five touchdowns. He picked up 214 of those yards in his redshirt senior season of 2019, helping the team to an 11-2 record and Cotton Bowl win over

Bowers made his regular-season NFL debut in Week 5 of the 2021 season against the Chicago Bears. He appeared in five games last year, playing  on both offense and special teams.
