Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles is poised for a busy offseason.
Three teams have reached out to Bowles after firing their coaches at the end of the season, with Albert Breer of the NFL Network reporting the Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings are all eyeing the veteran coach's services.
Bowles is responsible for improving the Cardinals' defense from the bottom third of the league to a top-10 unit, and the strength of an Arizona team that almost made the playoffs in 2013. He took much of the same personnel from his predecessors and made them an aggressive unit that recorded nine more sacks than in 2012, while allowing fewer yards and points.
A journeyman NFL coach, Bowles has been in the NFL for 13 years in a coaching capacity, working with six different teams. His primary focus is in the secondary, but proved in 2013 that he can organize a defensive line.
