Kansas City Chiefs: Andy Reid needs to bring back Dwayne Bowe
Now that the Kansas City Chiefs have a head coach, many fans are distracted by the quarterback situation and the hiring of Andy Reid but forget to pay attention to the fate of wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Bowe will be a free agent this off-season, and is expected to be one of the most sought-after wideouts in free agency. He had 59 receptions, along with 801 yards with three touchdowns in 13 games.
He has had three seasons in his six-year career where he had over 1,000 yards receiving per season. He is a deep threat that can help other receivers get open, but when a team does not have a quarterback, it is hard to produce statistics that mean anything.
Reid should keep Bowe so the Chiefs have a legitimate target for the offense and whatever quarterback they choose to sign or draft. This situation is almost identical to Reggie Wayne with the Indianapolis Colts this season, where you have a receiver who has been at one place his whole career, but may leave now that the team is at the bottom of the food chain.
Like Wayne, Bowe should realize with Reid and the first overall draft pick, they have the ability to become better. Reid needs to do everything he can to re-sign Bowe, and do his best to build around players like him, Jamal Charles, and the defense, which had a decent pass defense last season.
Do not be surprised to see the Chiefs offer Bowe a big-time contract.
