Kansas City Chiefs fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
The Chiefs have agreed to terms with star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe. The deal is reportedly worth five years according to Adam Schefter. Many thought Bowe would be franchised tagged yet again. This deal offers long-term stability for Chiefs nation as well as locks up punter Dustin Colquitt.
Bowe has been on the Chiefs roster now for six seasons making his presence known. He led the NFL in touchdowns in 2010 with 15. Unlike many wide receivers that come with the “diva personality,” Bowe is different. He doesn’t complain to management constantly and he doesn’t celebrate after every catch, nor does he argue with his quarterback(s). It will be interesting to see how new Chiefs head coach Andy Reid uses Bowe next season.
You could make the case that Bowe is a top three wide receiver in the NFL; regardless, he’s one of the most underrated players without a doubt.
The team will also be re-signing punter Dustin Colquitt, who was a third round draft choice in 2005 draft. He has been with the Chiefs ever since and he has stayed healthy only missing two games. With the Chiefs’ poor offensive production lately, he has been busy.
Everybody knows Reid loves to throw the football more than run it. With the return of Bowe and the signing of new quarterback Alex Smith, the team has made it clear they plan on doing just that.
