Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe is ready to get back to work.
Bowe, the franchise player who has been absent from all offseason work, training camp and the start of the preseason, has now signed his franchise tender.
That means Bowe will play this season for a base salary of $9.5 million, and the signing now means heíll have three weeks to get up to speed before the start of the regular season. There had been conflicting reports in the last couple of weeks about how soon Bowe would sign, but there was little doubt that heíd be ready to go for Week One, and now that is assured.
Bowe is the last of the franchise players to sign with his team. The list of high-profile NFL holdouts is now down to two: Steelers receiver Mike Wallace, who hasnít signed his one-year restricted free agent tender, and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who has two years left on his current contract but is holding out in the hopes that the Jaguars will give him a new deal.
yup gives us one more weapon to use. can not wait for the season
Welcome home D.Bowe.
He is an inpressive bundle of patential, hope he has a great year.
He learned nothing from Tony G. it wouldnt suprise me if Pioli does try to trade him. I wouldnt want it...but D. Bowe has shown that he doesnt want to be here. better than loosing him for nothing like how the faiders did with Nnamdi Asomugha.
But I would hate to lose him for nothing, we got d bowe, glenn dorsey, and branden albert, who i believe gets franchised next year. Tall order ahead to say the least.
