One name that may look familiar to those who frequent JetNation.com is Towson wide receiver Brian Dowling, cousin of Brandon Dowling, the former host of JetNation radio’s podcast.

As with many local pro day prospects, the 5′ 10” 190 lb Dowling is a long-shot, but he does have experience in an area of need for Gang Green as he has served not only as a wide receiver, but as a kick returner during his time at Towson.
