Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?


By Gregg Rosenthal

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.

Or that he's an entitled ****stain, playing only when he wants to, and blaming headaches when he doesn't.


Oh, wait. That's Percy Harvin. The guy who actually HAS BAGGAGE, yet the media ignores it.

Bowe's the bad guy. Hope like hell we re-sign this goddamn menace to society.


Wasn't a thread here in which most everyone was drooling at Harvin's availability?

This...

Nice guy and all, perhaps has TONS of talent, but in the end there were enough instances where balls were dropped that either lead to the conclusion that he actually isn't as talented as we thought, lacks focus, and/or wasn't putting it all out there "to win the game" (saving himself for his next team maybe???) when the expectation is to catch almost everything that touches your hands. The only other reason is the ball has Pam on it, and that I'm doubting...

He hasn't figured out Pioli was fired, Pioli said himself flacco shouldn't get big money until he gets a few more pelts on the wall

Simply due to the fact that you didn't get OTWP's overall tone of his post, makes you a moron.

he's not clutch -- at least, not so far. but, he's about the best WR in the league at boxing out defenders and he has worked hard to become quick, run routes and he's the best blocker WR in the game, among the best ever imo.

Bowe began the 2012 season with a drop, but he was at his best ever after a few games, dismal season that it was. He was as guilty as the next guy for this dreadful year, but I really liked what I saw at one point there and he did have critical drops in his past, but I just think that he has put the work in to become his best and with a new WCO plus QB & coaches, I believe Bowe will become elite in any critic's eyes.

Folks may argue about his contract or that he is not worth yadayada, I am not counting on Bowe to make it into the HOF, but I think his best is just ahead.
