Todd Bowles Playing Career
Todd Bowles began his playing career while still studying in college. He was signed by the Washington Redskins as an undrafted free agent on May 7, 1986. He chose the Redskins over six other NFL teams and signed a contract that included a signing bonus between $8,000 and $10,000.
He competed for training camp with a free safety Raphel Cherry and beat out to earn a spot on the regular season roster. In his second training camp in 1987, Bowles beat out Curtis Jordan for the starting free safety job when Jordan was released during final roster cuts on September 8, 1987. He was the starting free safety in Super Bowl XXII, which Washington won in a blowout.
On February 1, 1989, his contract expired and was left unprotected by the Redskins during “Plan B” free agency, despite being a regular starter at free safety the previous two seasons. This was reportedly due to his poor catching abilities in 1988, as well as his lack of playmaking ability. He then negotiated contracts with the Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, and New York Giants, but ultimately re-signed with the Redskins. In 1990, Bowles received a salary of $300,000 and started 18 games (including playoffs).

He was waived during final roster cuts on September 1, 1992. He was claimed off waivers by the Redskins on September 2, 1992. He was waived by the Redskins during final roster cuts on August 31, 1993.
