Seahawks’ Michael Bowie, out for season, claimed by Browns

The Cleveland Browns claimed Seahawks offensive lineman Michael Bowie on Sunday, a day after he was designated as waived/injured by Seattle with a shoulder issue that will require surgery and keep him out of action for 4-6 months.

Bowie tweeted a farewell message to Seattle on Sunday afternoon:
