is currently visiting the New Orleans Saints over the weekend and auditioning for a roster spot during the teams' rookie minicamp.

Players in attendance include 13 undrafted free agents, draft rookies, tryout players WR Josh Morgan and Bowers.

"I'm sure there's an opportunity," Bowers said to the Times-Picayune. "If there wasn't, I don't think they would have brought me in. We'll see where it goes. Hopefully they'll like what they see, and we'll move forward when the time is right."

Bowers is getting to show his football talents during a three-day minicamp instead of just a few hours like a traditional NFL tryout.

"It's way different than a tryout," Bowers said. "You can really show what you can do. You get to show how well you can retain information. It's just like being in a veteran camp. You get to go on the field and practice and show what you can do."

Other teams that have reported interest in Bowers include the Lions and Dolphins.

The Bamberg high school product had 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a pass break up in 2014.

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 as a senior at Clemson had 67 tackles, 26 tackles for loss and 15.5 sacks. He actually 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.
