Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

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.

i was simply pointing out why he was made at the Vikings in 2012. It was very clear that the offensive passing gameplan was a huge pile of shit, and that directly affects him. So yeah he's going to be mad when Christian Ponder throws for 60 yards.

I wish Bowe would have called out Brian Daboll and Matt Cassel when the Chiefs threw for 30 yards and 5 picks every game, but ya know. I'm just not going to fault Harvin for calling out people who suck dog shit when I for 16 games was hoping for any Chief to do that, and instead got some garbage nonsense from Eric Winston.
How do you know why he was made at the Vikings?

Really? Did they also talk about the confrontation with the hc?

I somewhat remember that only coming out after the season, and they put him on ir right after it.

He is a cancer.

be an asshole all you want. But you have to be a good teammate.

He always seems to be banged up, you have the attitude issues, and while Harvin is a good player, he's not a great one.

If you normalize his production, you probably get 60-70 receptions, 800 yards, 5 touchdowns, maybe 1 more on a kickoff (he doesn't return punts). Those numbers aren't THAT gaudy. At least, you could find that sort of production in someone cheaper and who won't be a problem.

Harvin is too streaky for my taste. He's young, so it's a chance the right coach might be able to turn him into a terror.

im not saying i want Harvin, but I'm just saying his gripes of a shitty QB are being blown out of proportion. He wasnt happy with the Vikings before the season even started so Im not sure why people are shocked that he wasnt happy with them during the season, then he tore a ligament in his ankle, all while still putting up career numbers through nine games.

He just doesnt want to be there. You see it with tons of players, Jared Allen didnt want to be with the Chiefs and that god awful coaching staff, GM, QB, etc at that point in his career either and he left for another team, got old, got married and you havent heard a peep out of him. It happens.

I dont want to give up the pick or money for Harvin either. I'm just saying the perspective of it comes down to Greg Jennings at 30-40 million or Percy Harvin at 50-60 million+ a draft pick.... I would gladly give up the extra 10-15 million and a pick for a much much better player

That's what I learned with Stanford Routt's 7 million to Brandon Carr's 10 million. I mean why the **** not just spend a little bit more and get the much better talent?

Except every one of the pictures you posted could actually be results of inaccurate passes. But the photo he posted was an incredible catch of an obviously inaccurate pass. Just sayin'.
