Franchised #Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender. #ChiefsCamp



KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Friday that WR Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender.

Bowe has played in 75 career games (70 starts) for the Chiefs with 356 catches for 4,927 yards and 36 touchdowns during his five-year career. He has led the Chiefs in receptions and receiving yards in each of the past three seasons.

In his last two seasons, Bowe has caught 153 passes for 2,321 yards and 20 TDs. In 2011, he notched 81 receptions for 1,159 yards and five TDs. During the 2010 season, he recorded 72 catches for a career-best 1,162 yards and a franchise-record 15 TDs, a mark that led the NFL and included a stretch of seven consecutive games with a TD reception to set a team record. He earned second-team All-Pro honors and was selected to the Pro Bowl following his 2010 campaign.

His 356 receptions rank seventh in team history and his 4,927 receiving yards rank eighth in club annals. With 36 touchdown catches, he ranks fifth in Chiefs history while his 73 catches of 20-plus yards are third-most in franchise record books.

The Miami, Fla., native originally entered the NFL as Kansas City’s first-round selection (23rd overall) in the 2007 NFL Draft. He was a first-team All-SEC selection at LSU, where he caught 154 passes for 2,403 yards and a school-record 26 TDs.

Plus....

Bengals just waived former Univ. of Texas WR Jordan Shipley. Think he'd be a better WR option than Wylie or McCluster? I think the Chiefs are going to sign a couple more players once cuts come, esp in the secondary with the injuries we have there.

i guess that's possible

The NFL has moved the trade deadline back a couple of weeks this year.


If our season turns to shit and some borderline playoff team loses a receiver ... Baldwin is playing well.

They might back up the truck in a trade for Bowe.

League, union can’t strike deal on IR, trade deadline changes
Posted by Mike Florio on August 11, 2012, 6:45 PM EDT

In May, the NFL’s owners passed a pair of rule changes that require NFLPA approval.

A league source tells PFT that a recent memo from the league office to the 32 teams explained that the NFLPA has yet to approve the changes.

One adjustment would nudge the trade deadline from Week Six to Week Eight. The other would grant each team the ability to put one player who is injured after passing the training-camp physical on temporary injured reserve, with a potential return coming after Week Six. Currently, any player who is injured after the start of training camp must either be carried on the roster or placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Both changes arguably benefit players. (That said, some may not want to be traded, so they’d prefer that they window close earlier not later.) Per the source, the union hasn’t agreed to the changes because the union wants something in return for agreeing to the changes.

It one of the basic realities of collective bargaining. If one side wants something, the other side wants something in exchange — even if the thing the first side wants helps the other side.

Complicating matters is the general atmosphere of acrimony that currently exists between the league and the union. From the bounty brouhaha to the collusion case to the ongoing posturing as to who “won” the 2011 labor negotiations, things aren’t good right now between the league and the union, which will make it hard for the union to agree to anything that the league wants.

i guess that's possible

The NFL has moved the trade deadline back a couple of weeks this year.


If our season turns to shit and some borderline playoff team loses a receiver ... Baldwin is playing well.

They might back up the truck in a trade for Bowe.

Chiefs’ Bowe signs franchise tender

Chiefs’ Bowe signs franchise tender

Through an otherwise tranquil training camp, the Chiefs were nagged by just one issue, but it was an issue so large it had the potential to derail what they hope can be a special season.

Their best wide receiver, Dwayne Bowe, wasn’t with them. Bowe, the Chiefs’ unsigned franchise player, was sitting out and gave no public indication when he would rejoin the team.

Like clouds giving way to blue sky after a storm, the situation suddenly resolved itself Friday, a day after the Chiefs broke training camp at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph. Bowe signed his one-year contract offer from the Chiefs, worth $9.5 million.

Bowe won’t play Saturday night when the Chiefs continue their preseason with a game against the Rams. He can’t practice in pads for three days after he joins the Chiefs for workouts next week, making it unlikely he would play in the Aug. 24 preseason game against Seattle at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs conclude the preseason on Aug. 30 against the Packers in Green Bay. They begin the regular season on Sept. 9 against Atlanta at Arrowhead.

Bowe has some ground to make up. Coordinator Brian Daboll installed a new offense and Bowe didn’t participate in any of the offseason practices or at the three weeks of training camp, so he hasn’t learned it.

Still, his arrival can only help the Chiefs as they battle with San Diego, Denver and perhaps Oakland for the AFC West championship.

“I picked them to win the division before Bowe signed,” said ESPN analyst Herm Edwards, the Chiefs coach when they drafted Bowe in the first round in 2007. “This just strengthens my opinion. Dwayne Bowe had been a 1,000-yard receiver his whole career, so he’s been pretty consistent. He’s not a fluke. He’s back and that’s only going to help them.

“They’ve got some weapons now. The key for them is to get back to running the football. That sets up everything for them. What they did in the preseason game (against Arizona last week), I think that’s how they want to play. They were very solid, went on some long drives. They ran the ball early, established that, and then the play-action pass opened up for them.”

The Chiefs said they would have no comment on Bowe signing until after Saturday’s game. Bowe was unavailable to comment.

The Chiefs have built a roster they believe will make them a strong contender for the AFC West championship and perhaps even a candidate to go deep into the playoffs. But they had little proven talent at wide receiver without Bowe.

Steve Breaston caught 61 passes last season, his first with the Chiefs. Job Baldwin and Dexter McCluster played well in the off-season and at camp but still haven’t shown they can deliver big plays during the regular season.

None has a record that can stack up to Bowe’s. He was their leading receiver in each of the past three seasons and had at least 70 catches in four of his five NFL years.

He made the Pro Bowl in 2010 after catching 72 passes and scoring 15 touchdowns.

The Chiefs were lacking all of that proven production at training camp. The deadline had passed in July for the sides to agree on terms of a long-term contract, so when camp started, Bowe had only two options: sit out or sign the one-year offer.

He flew to Kansas City late last week, sparking speculation he had signed. Bowe hadn’t then, but it turned out his signing wasn’t far off.

After watching that video, I've come to the conclusion that you turds saying we should trade Bowe can take a flying leap of something.


Yeah, the dude has dropped a pass or two, but he's an extremely talented wr, who we will need if/when we make a deep playoff push.

Not to mention that we would be looking at what, like a 3rd round pick at best? I would gamble on keeping Bowe long-term even if the odds are low over taking a 3rd-5th rounder. I don't really think its that tough a choice either. Trading because you are so afraid of getting nothing doesn't make sense logically. Especially when what you are getting in return is not value.

You guys can't turn on Bowe. The guy has played his guys out here and deserves to be paid and retire a Chief.



I guess you guys wouldn't pay Andre Johnson cause he got in a fist fight on the 50 once?


Has the guy produced at an elite level? Yes. Don't trade him, pay him.

Just thinking about it, it's funny that at the end of last season we were all excited about the Chiefs' defense and it's now the offense that is, for a lack of a better word, awesome.

Pioli made some of the best off season moves this past year that I've ever seen in terms of addressing the weak spots of the team, particularly the offense. Winston, Boss, Hillis. Those three guys replace the weakest spots from last year and upgrade them to near All-Pro level.

I shit you not, the Chiefs are going to shove the ball down peoples throats this year. One of the best offensive units, on paper, that I've ever seen. If the interior line guys "get it," this offense is scary good. (And the defense and special teams, which were the strong point of the team, should be even better than last year with the development and growth guys like Houston, Arenas, Belcher, Brown, etc.)

Shit. These guys are giving me optimism.
