Bowe wants to stay in KC

Bowe says he never wanted out of KC, wants to finish career as a Chief
By ADAM TEICHER

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says he'd like to stay with the Chiefs.

Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe says he'd like to stay with the Chiefs.


Wide receiver Dwayne Bowe sought to clear up what he said was a misconception that he wanted out of Kansas City. To the contrary, Bowe said Thursday in a rare interview he would like to finish his career with the Chiefs.

“Why wouldn’t I want to stay here? It’s a no-brainer for me,” said Bowe, who became emphatic once the topic was introduced. “I never said I didn’t want to be here. I never said that. This is where it started for me. This is where people know me from. That’s crazy to me.

“When I heard that, I was like, ‘Where did that come from?’ I never said I wanted out. Please clear that up for me. Do I play like I don’t want to be here? I just keep my mouth closed and play the game. That’s what I do. Please tell everybody to stop saying I’m a bad guy. I just don’t talk (to the media much).”

Bowe is on the verge of becoming the greatest pass receiver in Chiefs history, at least statistically. With another 12 catches, Bowe will become their career leading pass catcher for a wide receiver, passing Henry Marshall.

He would then become the Chiefs second-leading career pass receiver, though he would still be about 500 catches behind tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Because of the history, among other reasons, Bowe said he would like to remain with the Chiefs.

“This is where I was drafted,” Bowe said. “When I’m finished, I feel I should be in the Hall of Fame and hopefully win Super Bowls.

“I play the game to win. That’s what I do week in and week out. I feel we can do that here, of course. Things happen and it won’t be easy but I try to show (that spirit) and it will become contagious. You’ll see it. It’s coming.”

It’s less than certain that Bowe figures into the Chiefs’ long-term plans. When the sides couldn’t agree on a contract this year, the Chiefs made Bowe their franchise player, and after missing all of offseason practice and training camp in protest, he signed their one-year contract worth about $9.5 million.

The Chiefs and Bowe could agree to terms for a long-term contract after this season, but it seems unlikely given that the Chiefs didn’t offer a deal this year that would make Bowe happy and he’ll be another year closer to the end of his career.

The Chiefs could also keep Bowe again as their franchise player.

“We’ll have to see how all that goes,” Bowe said. “All I can do is continue to play my best here to make it happen.”

By the numbers, Bowe hasn’t been affected much by the numerous problems otherwise dragging down the 1-8 Chiefs. He has is having one of the better statistical seasons of his career.

Bowe has 49 receptions, putting him on pace for 87. His career high is 86 set in 2008. But he has only three touchdowns, each coming in the fourth quarter of a blowout loss.

“I think I’ve been productive,” he said. “My production has been steady.

“As a receiver, my job is to catch the ball from the quarterback no matter who that is. With both quarterbacks coming in and playing to the best of their ability, I think I’ve been doing a great job catching either one of their passes. It’s all in the head coach’s decision who plays. I try to compete at a high level each week. I try to give my team a better opportunity to win. That’s what I work in practice to do.”

Bowe turned 28 in September, so he’s approaching the age when some receivers begin to lose their skills. But he said he planned to play several more seasons.

“I think I’m just getting started,” Bowe said. “I’m 28, but I’ve learned how to play with (nine) different quarterbacks. I learned how to be the man … you can see that during the majority of the game I’m always going to be open. It took years for me to learn all that and it’s going to extend my career and I’ll be a big-time playmaker.

“I feel like I’ve got at least six more (seasons) in me, six more (easily). I love this game. You can tell in the way I play it … 33, 34, that’s what I’m shooting for.”

Bowe, notorious earlier in his career for arriving at Chiefs camp out of shape, said he would work harder during the offseason to maintain his conditioning.

“When you’re young you go off just talent,” he said. “The older you get, it’s all about technique. This offseason, I’m definitely going to have a personal trainer travel with me wherever I go and work on the things I need to work on.”

In the meantime, the Chiefs have seven games remaining. Pointing to Monday night’s overtime loss in Pittsburgh as progress, Bowe said the Chiefs would win their share of them.

“Guys are just starting to know how to play together,” Bowe said. “That’s one thing coach talks about, guys playing together and playing as a team and sometimes it takes a team eight games or how many games it is to figure it out. I think guys have just figured out how to put it all together.

“We’re not that far away from winning. Seven games is a long time in football.”

Or, is he going to take him clubbing every night?

Let's face it. Bowe is nothing like Reggie Wayne or Steve Smith for example. I don't want him around. He is not a guy that a rookie QB can lean on imo.

I don't know, but I think that if you put that stuff in a spoiler tag and mark it as NSFW you're ok.

Might want to check on that with Bob Dole, though.

Wait..What?

The guy posted a Twitter post from a well respected writer about Bowe wanting out. How is that BS?

He's also far from a troll. That's just ****ing absurd.

I don't get the dislike for Bowe. He's been a great performer for us and has put up amazing stats considering that he's fighting for volleyballs on every pass. Can you imagine his stats if he had an actual NFL quarterback throwing to him?

The guy has averaged 71 receptions, 985 yards, and 7 touchdowns per year, and that's with half the passes thrown his way being uncatchable.

What he can do with a real qb. Hopefully we'll find out next year.

I went back and looked at the picture. If you mark it with a spoiler tag, make sure you also mark it NSFW. That's really the deal. Make sure people with their kids, and their bosses around (same thing really, LOL) aren't going to be subjected to it without warning. I say **** all the time, and have my filters turned off so I don't see ****, but I don't have to worry about someone crying about it. I don't use CP at work, and I don't have kids.

Maybe. But considering Bowe has always suffered the 'dropsies' at the worst possible time of a game 'all of his career' and considering he has a 'Pop Warner' QB throwing to him that actually physically insults the Pop Warner league and on a team that is the worst in the NFL, having a subpar year, Bowe may be realizing the FA market will not be as big as he thinks. Bowe with this much foresight ????? Nahhhhh, he is Fitz material all the way
