By Andrew ParkerBowles, who was traded to the Bears last week, is one of the most underappreciated players in the NFL.
Bowles led the NFL with 8.5 sacks last season, helping the Bears finish 12-2.
He led the league with 6.5 interceptions and led the Bears in tackles for loss, while his 11.5 tackles for a loss was second to only Michael Strahan.
He was also a leader and one of those guys that had to do his share of the heavy lifting in the run game.
In fact, Bowles led all quarterbacks with 17 sacks, which was a franchise record.
Bowes has been a fan favorite since joining the Bears as a free agent in 2009.
His contract was one of a few high-profile trades that helped the team get back to the Super Bowl for the first time in three years.
In the last four years, Bowls has averaged 8.4 sacks and 4.5 picks.
He has also missed five games with a hamstring injury.
In 2016, Bowes had a career-high 9.0 sacks.
He had 10.5 in 2015.
In 2014, he had a season-high 13.5.
