[picappgallerysingle id=”10291591″]Kansas City wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is quietly getting ready to break several franchise receiving records for a season. That’s not too bad considering many fans were ready to run Bowe out of town after a 2009 season that included a four-game suspension and more dropped passes than you see in a Thanksgiving full of backyard football games.
Bowe rededicated himself during the offseason, and to be brutally honest, he grew up quite a bit going into the 2010 season. The results of his newfound dedication and work ethic have him poised to break many Chiefs receiving records.
Based upon his current pace, here are the Chiefs season records for receivers that Bowe either has already or could break by the end of the regular season.
