Branden Bowen is getting another shot to play in the NFL.

The Arizona Cardinals signed Bowen, who was an Ohio State offensive lineman from 2015-19, on Wednesday.

Bowen, who started Ohio State's first six games of 2017 at right guard and then became the Buckeyes' starting right tackle in 2019 after working his way back from a broken leg, spent last offseason with the Carolina Panthers but went unsigned last fall after being released by the Panthers in their preseason cuts.

He could have a better shot to show what he can do in Arizona this offseason, though, since the 2020 NFL preseason was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bowen becomes one of two Ohio State products on the Cardinals' current roster, along with kicker Mike Nugent.
