The problem with Bowe is that he is a possession guy, not a burner. Critical to being a good possession receiver is having good hands. Unfortunately he does not. So do you give Top 5 money to a possession receiver that yearly is one of the leaders in dropped passes?
The problem the Chiefs have is that Bowe is their best WR even after taking the drops into account.
And not only is he the best, he's clearly on a different level from anyone else they have...though a good quarterback would make all our WRs look better, and Bowe would definitely be top 5 in terms of yards/TDs.
