So if the Chiefs can't work out a long term deal with Bowe sometime before week 6, do the Chiefs trade him? I think it's highly unlikely, but it wouldn't surprise me. Especially if the Chiefs can get someone they deem close to Bowe's talent under $9.5M in FA or the Draft. And they do covet draft picks. It's not far-fetched to consider that the Chiefs might want to work a deal with Albert and Dorsey this year. Personally, I hope they find a way to lock Bowe up long term. Unless of course, they can get someone to grossly overpay.

They won't trade Bowe. Cassel would start scraping the bottom of the statistical rankings.

I'm starting to sense that you don't care for Cassel. :D

Let me rephrase: Any chance of Cassel licking the bootstraps of the top half of the NFL's quarterbacks would cease to exist.

Bowe and the chiefs have to july 15 to work out a long term deal. If they cant he plays 2012 under a 1 year deal.

Good point. They still have the right to trade him, up until week six, is that correct? A #1 WR goes down for a team that considers itself a contender & Bowe could fetch a lofty price.

I think seeing how Baldwin develops could effect the possibility of trading Bowe.

If he looks like he could be a # 1, maybe it's possible. Maybe.

If not, no way.

No, they would continue to work out a deal during the season and through next offseason. If we have to, we slap him again with the tag.

Yeah don't see any way we get rid of Bowe in any form. The fans would go more ballistic than letting Carr walk, which I didn't mind that much.

Baldwin breaking out this year could help, but losing your #1 WR hurts a lot more than losing your #2 CB for sure. We would have to sign a decently young Pro Bowl WR to make up for letting Bowe go, in which case it just seems easier to just get Bowe's deal done.

:facepalm: Your logic is a little fuzzy there. I did not say that. What I am saying is that certain teams, at certain times, are more prone to overpay for value. That's all.

Polio will low ball him.

Polio, "Bowe, you want a Calvin Johnson deal?"

Bowe, "I want a good deal that appreciates what I bring to the team".

Polio, "8 years, 18 millions, 8 guaranteed."

As bad as he is we still won 7 games last year which might have been more if he didn't get hurt. Add in all the other injuries we suffered. Obviously he is not even average but I am not going to sit here in March and have no optimism about next season.

Yes you are correct but to me trading Bowe would be a sign of conceding the season for the future (assuming we are talking draft picks). I guess this all depends on how much a fan of Baldwin each person is. And don't worry I read that you don't like the idea either. :D

And why do we need or want to trade a top 10 WR and known commodity in Bowe?

Because he used to drop the ball. And for some reason people think finding good wr's is easy.

Oh, and people were clamoring for a 2nd wr last year. Once we finally got one, for some reason now people want to trade the number 1. At that point, we'll have to draft one again.

Yes, he is great at tough sideline grabs. It's the ones where he is wide freaking open in the end zone to send his team to the playoffs where his concentration level needs to heighten. Especially for someone who is now regarded as a #1 franchise WR making almost $10 mill a year.

There are no excuses anymore, this guy needs to get even better or I think they will trade him. I think he still was second in drops in the NFL last season.

I'm not sure that anyone here is calling for him to be traded. It is more about anticipating what the front office might do with him as the situation is somewhat tenuous and there are multiple options available.

abloo bloo bloo he only had 2000 yards and 20 touchdowns over two seasons with matt cassel and tyler palko throwing the ball to him. GET IT TOGETHER BUDDY.

Anybody wanting to trade him is farging nuts. This is the best receiver we have had since the days of Otis Taylor. It took almost 40 years to get a receiver of that caliber.
