Arizona's next DC? Todd Bowles released from Eagles contract

It all seems to be lining up.

The Arizona Cardinals, who hired Bruce Arians as head coach seemingly at the expense of defensive coordinator Ray Horton, will need to replace the architect of their defense.

The name linked to Arizona has been that of Todd Bowles, who finished last season as the defensive coordinator in Philadelphia.

He's now available to the Cardinals, according to USA Today NFL writer Mike Garafolo.

Bowles, 49, has spent time with the Dolphins, Cowboys, Browns and Jets as an assistant, but got his first taste of being a coordinator last season when he replaced Juan Castillo during the 2012 season.

The Eagles defense did not improve under Bowles, however, ultimately finishing 15th in total defense while giving up nearly 28 points per game.
