The Cowboys also brought in RB LaMichael James and RB Isaiah Pead for a look because of the recent ACL injury to their running back and kick returner Lance Dunbar.
Other players in the tryout list include linebackers Darius Eubanks and Zaviar Gooden and defensive linemen Chuka Ndulue and Casey Walker.
The Cowboys are currently on their bye week so they have time to evaluate possible new players on their roster.
The Bamberg high school product had 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass break up in 2014. In four NFL seasons, he has 70 tackles, 17 tackles for loss, seven sacks, seven pass break-ups and two fumble recoveries.
He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second round with the 51st overall pick after concerns over medical issues with his knee.
Bowers had 67 tackles, 26 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks. He led the nation in sacks and tackles for loss in 2010. He was also named first-team All-ACC, ACC Defensive Player of the Year, unanimous first-team All-American and winner of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy.
