Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?


By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor
Published: Feb. 11, 2013 at 09:59 a.m.
Updated: Feb. 11, 2013 at 10:08 a.m.

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.

The Jags can trade the #2, their second rounder and Gabbert for the #1 overall and the Chiefs can take Wilson.

I am really sick of people bashing Bowe. He has less "baggage" than 90 percent of the wide receivers in the league, and he is a better football player than 90 percent of the wide receivers in the league. Leave the man alone.

Two 1st round QBs and the #33 and #34 picks. Gabbert is so cheap for a veteran. The not very good part though..

you guys do realize Percy Harvin was doing this season what you all wished Bowe or a skill player would have done to Matt Cassel/Brady Quinn/Brian Daboll right

when the team has a QB throwing for 60 yards and Percy Harvin is in an argument over why the offense isnt generating any points in close games

he's a problem

meanwhile, it's no different than you fans flying banners before Chiefs games really.

All his altercations stem from the offense crapping the bed while the Vikings defense kept them in games, mainly Christian Ponders awful passing. Pretty much the same exact thing as Matt Castle

but yea Percy Harvin is the problem, the guy with playmaking ability going out there and making the best of the few catches he does get and leading the league in broken tackles on top of it, had NOTHING to do with him being upset at the dog shit QB he had to work with.

If Percy was a Chief in 2012 and he did the same thing to Matt Cassel and Brian Daboll as he did to Lesilie Frazie, the OC and whoever else you people would have called him your hero and a martyr

He's what you wish Eric Winston was.

I'm really curious to what he did wrong. He had to do something that really rubbed people the wrong way. There are too many people to seem to have a problem with him. Mellinger was always cracking jokes about him too. Chris Collinsworth always seemed to act like he was a diva, etc, etc.

It just depends. If this team drafts Geno and someone does that, he probably won't be a hero.

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.
