Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?


By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor

Conventional wisdom says there should be three top receivers available in free agency this year: Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, and Dwayne Bowe.

They each have the skills to be a "No. 1" target but they also have some knocks against them. Jennings is coming off an injury-plagued year. Wallace is a speed merchant that hasn't exactly developed into a complete receiver. Bowe's downside is harder to define.

"I am scared to death of Dwayne Bowe," one scout told SI.com's Peter King. "Like him a lot, but not sure what we'd be buying if we signed him. Too much baggage."

Bowe didn't have the best reputation early in his days after getting drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs. His propensity for drops matched his up-and-down effort. (And up-and-down weight.) Bowe has mostly avoided negative headlines the last two seasons, but his reputation for selfish behavior clearly still persists.

I have little doubt Bowe will get paid big bucks regardless. King mentions Jennings, Wallace, and Brian Hartline as this year's biggest receiver targets, but Bowe has the most well rounded skill set of any one of them. He's put up big numbers despite shaky quarterback play, even if Bowe is the master at garbage time production.

The biggest concern here is how Bowe will react to earning big money. He's played his best the last two years while playing for a new contract. He won't get Vincent Jackson money, but Bowe should do very well even if he scares some teams to death.

Played his best the last two years?

Apparently his 2010 year wasn't his best year.

He's never been arrested to my knowledge, let alone convicted of anything.

He's put up with bad QB play for his entire career and still been productive.

Baggage? That's ridiculous.

People forget how not having a real QB has kept D-Bowe down. A WR with a "baggage" would have complained about that many times. I LOVE that we have him and deeply HOPE the FO is wise enough to keep him.

I think the author is scared of D-Bowe's "package" and just misspelled it.

There are only two negatives to his game:

1) Lacking top end speed.

2) Gets nervous and when the game is on the line and drops the "big" catch. Drops happen. No WR is perfect. Bowe has a very bad habit of dropping balls that could change the outcome of the game.

I agree with everyone else. Everything about that article is incorrect. Hopefully the article scares off some teams that don't do research.

Bowe didn't have up and down weight.

He played fine at 220, but Todd Haley wanted him lighter. It didn't make any real difference except that he took a shortcut and got suspended. Saying his weight was up and down is a lie.

Also "he played his best the last two years"



It's hard to take someone seriously when all of his facts are wrong.
