2. Sean Murphy-Bunting

This signing seems more likely than anything, as Sean Murphy-Bunting spent last season in Tennessee with Bowen. In 14 games with the Titans last year, he recorded 57 tackles, eight pass breakups and two interceptions. Murphy-Bunting wasn't so bad in coverage either, allowing just two touchdowns and a 91.8 quarterback rating when targeted.

In the case of signing Murphy-Bunting, he'd come at a relatively cheap price. Spotrac has his value set at $6.7 million per year, a large step down from Fuller's expected average from the previous slide. He's also younger, as he'll turn 27 by Week 1. Murphy-Bunting also knows what it takes to win, as he was part of the Buccaneers Super Bowl team that defeated the Chiefs during the 2020 season.

The obvious Bowen connection is there and would make a ton of sense in bringing in players already familiar with the system. While he'll also have a strong market once free agency begins, bringing in Murphy-Bunting would be a solid move by Joe Schoen.
