#chiefs have placed the franchise tag on wr Dwayne Bowe.


Chiefs make Bowe their franchise player






The Chiefs today named Dwayne Bowe, their top wide receiver the past five seasons, as their franchise player, a move that effectively keeps him off the free-agent market.

As part of that transaction, the Chiefs offered Bowe a one-year contract worth about $9.5 million. Bowe can sign the contract at any time or the sides could negotiate a long-term contract.

As the franchise player, Bowe could still negotiate a contract with another team. But the Chiefs would have the right to match the offer and retain Bowe. If they decline to match, the Chiefs would lose Bowe but receive two first-round draft picks as compensation.

Top flight receivers are tough to come by. Plus we have a bazillion dollars in cap room. How hard of a decision is it? Plus he's going to sign long term anyways eventually, so the only difference in the end result I can see is that we let Carr walk for nothing instead of a tag and trade for a 1st or 2nd.

What I meant was he would be forgiven for allowing Carr to walk if we take that money we saved by not signing Carr, and used it on Peyton.

Ultimately the scenario you mentioned was ideal, but that is no longer possible. I'm trying to find a way for Pioli to dig out of a hole and make something happen QB wise.

Why did the Chiefs give up a 2 for Cassel then? Or why did any other player get tagged and traded? Hell even a 3 would be better than nothing. The levearge the Chiefs could create is making DET and DAL bid for Carr. I doubt both DET and DAL would pass up on him if it meant a 2nd or 3rd rounder. Get them to both want him and you could make it a 1 or 2.

Worst case scenario you just go down and down until a team is willing to trade for him. I highly doubt DET or DAL would not be willing to give up a 3rd for him. Lets just say for arguement sake that they don't. U really think they wouldn't give up a late round pick?

Even if the Chiefs were somehow not able to unload him for a quality pick and wer looking at cap trouble if they kept him, you think they couldn't give him up for a 5th or 6th?

I understand your point, I just don't think its very realistic that a team wouldn't trade them some pick for him. Worst case scenario the Chiefs give him up for less than they should. With the teams that would want him, and how the tag/trade has played out over time, I think its pretty safe to say the Chiefs could get a decent pick for him. Certainly wouldn't have to worry about being on the hook for the money.

Well if thats true the Chiefs would be in need of trading him in the next week. That would cost them some leverage but I still don't think KC would have a problem fielding a 3rd rounder for him. Teams are going to throw a ton of money at him, I really doubt they wouldn't be willing to give a 3rd to guarantee he takes their money.

The need to not have Carr eating up space during free agency is also assuming KC plans on spending all its money. If Pioli doesn't go after the big names it makes even less sense to not tag/trade Carr.

The big unknown in this specific situation is what Bowe wants. If Bowe is asking for crazy money and a contract was never possible right now then it never made the tag/trade Carr option possible.

The idea is that Carr's cap hit would be moved.

I really think the thought that a team like DAL/DET/NE woudn't pony up is unrealistic.

The point you both made that supports your arguement the most is having cap money to sign guys when FA starts. I personally think we could move Carr in time but its no lock.

This is disappointing. I guess the money we could potentially save on Bowe's long term deal is more appealing than getting a draft pick for Carr. Obviously fans disagree but we also aren't privy to the numbers being discussed between Bowe and the Chiefs.

We are doing what it takes by franchising him.

Carr's gone, deal with it. We have Routt.

I can and will deal with it. That doesn't change the fact that things could have been handled better to help the team. I don't see how pointing this out on the day that Bowe gets tagged and Carr doesn't is anything else but the proper time to do so. If I was bitching about this 3 weeks from now I could understand "getting over it". Its been about an hour since the decision was made.

I'd still pursue Mike Wallace to play alongside Baldwin and offer Bowe in a trade package to move up for RGIII. Not sure if the Rams can make it work, but you know they'd love to pair Bowe with Bradford next season. I'm betting Martin would still be there for them at 11.

Isn't that how a lot of tag/trade scenarios are though? Its not like other tag/trades had the team giving up the player in better situations yet teams still gave up picks for him.

If it were really as easy as people assume it is, don't you think a lot more teams would be doing exactly that? The Packers definitely could of pulled it off with Matt Flynn and they took a pass.

While people have argued Carr's value over Bowe in other threads, has anyone really attempted to say that in this thread? Even the few that were talking about how good Carr was never said he was more importan than Bowe. They were just saying people would want him and be willing to trade for him.

That is one of the bigger values of a franchise QB. It allows you to not only be flexable but make mistakes. Pioli sticking with Cassel would force him to hit a homerun on almost every other move. When you have a guy like Brady you can seriously screw up some picks and still be succesful. How bad would a team be getting ripped if they had a the defense NE does without a franchise QB?

I'm not saying it's impossible, just that if they don't succeed.......well they are fucked. Even if they are successful, it'd take awhile as other teams would wait until the unrestricted free agency situation sorts itself out as there are some other options there and plenty of options to take a look at in the draft.

In the mean time, they'd be handicapping themselves in being able to re-sign their own Free Agents and to add some others from outside.

People seem to think that gathering a ton of talent and then finding a real QB is a good idea. Its the other way around. You find your QB and build around them. In the process you can actually win before you think you can. You can't do that the other way around and the Chiefs have proven it for 40 years.

And people talk about Routt's contract like it's a big one, but realistically it's a fraction of what he signed with Oakland last year. He's making #2 corner money here. And he's really beside the point. He's not the issue. The issue is whether any franchise can or should really afford to pay two starting corners premium money. Which is what would be happening with Carr. You can debate whether they took the wrong one in keeping Flowers, but the main deal is that they did keep one. We'll see where Carr signs, when/if he signs somewhere else. But even without him, we do have a #1 and a #2, as well as the nickel and dimes. It's not like he's leaving and Arenas is starting.

They've got to fix the QB. If they can afford to sign Manning, great. If they can draft one, great. If keeping two corners with #1 salaries prevents either of those scenarios, not-so-great. It's the old addage about strength at one position hurting strength at others (something the Colts themselves know a little about). You can't afford to put all your eggs in one basket, because it leaves you exposed in other areas. Which has been our problem here for years, on both sides of the ball (i.e. when good on offense, holes on defense; when good on defense, no QB).

Bowe got the non-exclusive tag.

That's actually interesting news.

Chiefs assigned the franchise tag to WR Dwayne Bowe.
Kansas City waited until there were 20 minutes left before the end of the franchise tag period. The wideout market remains strong, even with Bowe, Wes Welker, Stevie Johnson, and DeSean Jackson returning to their respective teams. Bowe, 27, is rumored to be asking for exorbitant money, pursuing a contract in excess of what Vincent Jackson may receive on the open market. Therefore, it seems likely that Bowe will play the upcoming season on his one-year tender. Bowe set a career-high with 81 receptions in 2011 despite having to play with zero running game and four starts of Tyler Palko. Expect borderline WR1 production in 2012.

I wonder what "Exorbitant" actually means. If true, we could be looking at Bowe as a one year rental.

If they're that far apart on a contract, that'd easily explain the non-exclusive tag

An "exclusive" franchise player must be offered a one-year contract for an amount no less than the average of the top five salaries at the player's position as of a date in April of the current year in which the tag will apply, or 120 percent of the player's previous year's salary, whichever is greater. Exclusive franchise players cannot negotiate with other teams. The players' team has all the negotiating rights to the exclusive player.

http://www.kansascity.com/2012/02/18/3437420/chiefs-2012-salary-cap-breakdown.html

According to that (which is using 2011 cap figure as a basis), 37 million. That doesn't include Routt, or the 9.4 million charge Bowe will incur. Routt will eat up over 6 and the Chiefs recently signed some scrub, so lets say 16 million has been ate up since that post.

That drags the actual free space down 21 million. They will need to set aside around another 5 for the rookie pool, so take that down to 16. The cap will certainly go up this year, so anywhere from 16-20 million I'd guess.

That's a decent chunk of cash, but they also have 21 players about to become Free Agents.

Don't see the Chiefs moving up for RG3. I don't see why the Rams would want to move out of range to get an elite talent to scoop up a bunch of future picks that would have a higher likelyhood of returning as lower in said round. Instead they can just move down a few spots and choose between getting more of a sure thing from Cleveland, or a better chance of higher slotted future selections as the Redskins are an abortion but still land an elite talent.

I'm sure people will daydream about this possibility all the way to the draft, than type many angry words about Scott Pioli when it does not happen, but lets not pretend this is anything more than just a pipe dream.

As for the cap space, there's room to free up more space. The Chiefs could likely gain a good amount of space by inking Dorsey to a new deal. If they were to sign Manning, they could force Cassel to take a pay cut or release him for cap relief.

I think something will happen, but I just don't see it being RG3. They can offer all the want, but the Rams have to be willing to strike a deal.

If you already have the Redskins (at 6) lapping up all the dumb bullshit you're throwing out there, why would you give a fuck what the Chiefs have to say?

Thats a good point. However other teams like NE with Cassel have done it with success. I may be overlooking the complexity of it but you and ChiefsandO'sfan seem to be implying that it is impossible when you don't have the leverage. Its been shown to happen when its a player people want.



While people have argued Carr's value over Bowe in other threads, has anyone really attempted to say that in this thread? Even the few that were talking about how good Carr was never said he was more importan than Bowe. They were just saying people would want him and be willing to trade for him.

NE pulled it off because the Executive of the Decade and their Vice President of Player Personnel just happened to leave them after NE franchised Cassel. He came to KC and knew we needed a QB, thusly giving up a second for our crap sandwich of a QB.

This would be the most ideal situation for those that want to hop aboard the RG3 express:

Browns sign Matt Flynn in FA (This could happen. They will not have to part with any draft picks, the Big Show likes him some Packer QBs and it'd free them up to draft Trent Richardson+WR to have an offense that doesn't suck total shit)

Daniel Snyder has a change of heart and decides he wants more instant results from his real life fantasy team and makes it rain on Peyton Manning, because fuck Stephen Ross "I make the top stupid decisions here!"

If the Browns and Redskins bow out, the pool of potential traders dries up quickly. The only team ahead of the Chiefs at that point who could join the pool would be Miami, and they're not going to be overly desperate because Matt Moore is still under contract and actually played pretty damn well. By then the Rams may say fuck it and just draft Kalil, but the Vikings are next and they are even more desperate to move down. I think if you offer them a future one, they will settle with Michael Floyd or Jon Martin.

Problem with that is there is no incentive for Cleveland to give up much to move up as they can just sit there at #4 and land RGIII without giving up anything. Washington will only give up so much, or they could just sign Peyton or someone like Flynn if STL wants too much. We can offer more potentially than either as we are arguably the most talented team drafting in the Top 15. We can afford to lose more picks than either of them. For STL more picks from KC is better than sitting at #2 and having to draft someone. Plus if they are truly in cap hell, trading back to a spot like ours gives them a great player still while spending less money on him.

I think the biggest argument against Manning to Miami is Philbin wants to run his own system with his own guy, not Peyton and Peytons system. The owner is basically the only one that really really wants him.

You're expecting too much if you're looking at 4 years of Manning. He's a win now QB. Whoever he ends up with has to expect to win the SB, or at least be extremely competitive for about 2 years max. Anything else out of Peyton is just icing on the cake. His body is wearing down. His neck might not make it past 1 more year.

But a team like KC, or maybe the Jets could make a move for him because having an elite QB could set them over the top. I believe the Chiefs would be an immediate SB contender, and an easy pick for AFC West champions with Peyton in 2012.

I think he could play at that high level for 3 years. Obviously he's gonna start breaking down, but from all accounts he keeps himself in great shape. Plus with the fewer practices and physical things in the NFL, who knows.


He's gonna be protected as a qb, thats for sure.

Thats true.


I don't think Manning will cost 20, coming off that injury.

I think he will. He is Peyton freaking Manning. If he close to the same QB post injury that he was pre injury he will be the biggest FA on the market by far and will command probably close to what he would have gotten in Indy.

If thats the case, it's basically KC or bust. Not many teams at all can pay him that.


That was a stupid contract number.

They're just gonna let Carr walk! This is surprising BS!

Been that way since the SECOND they signed Routt.

The Jags are a contender in this! Why won't anyone believe me!!!?

The Jaguars are a terrible team with a good RB and a kicker (that's threatening to hold out lol).

There still is incentive because the Vikings are even more desperate to move down, think Ponder is a franchise QB for god knows what reason (so RG3 won't be in their plans) and hold the pick before Cleveland.

More incentive for STL to get a deal done which means they might not be so greedy with their demands knowing Minn will trade out for less.

Gil Brandt on NFL XM radio said the starting point will be 13 mil for Manning.

So if we are to go after him, that's gonna pretty much put an end to Soliai and Manning?

So we have about 20 mil give or take, with 5 million towards the draft. Thats gonna be cutting it pretty close.

So what teams would currently be able to afford this...?

Doesn't really matter as teams could clear up cap space for Peyton.

Let's try this again...

What teams could CURRENTLY afford this...?

The cap isn't going to be a consideration for teams that want Manning. First thing is, the money isn't the most important thing for him. Secondly, no team has ever not signed a player they wanted because "that darn salary cap", that's just an excuse they use to mollify fans.

Miami, Denver, and San Fransico.

Maybe but he's the biggest FA get since Reggie White so there's going to be some money thrown around.

meh ... i was thinking more along the lines of 8 million with a lot of incentives that take up to 18-ish million. For every game started,game won,any playoff started/won etc.

The Miami Dolphins actually don't have a lot of space, which is why they are making no effort to retain players like Solali.

More incentive for STL to get a deal done which means they might not be so greedy with their demands knowing Minn will trade out for less.
If the stars aligned for the Chiefs, it'd be more beneficial just to start talking with Minnesota.
