With most of the talk this offseason revolving around the No. 1 pick in April’s draft, it has taken the spotlight away from the Kansas City Chiefs No. 1 receiver. Dwayne Bowe will be headed to free agency and there hadn’t been any signs of progress… until now.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, new general manager John Dorsey is working to get a contract done with one of the most prolific receivers in franchise history.
Chiefs are actively pursuing a long-term deal with WR Dwayne Bowe. They’ve met with his reps, want to keep him.
Now of course this is where we have to mention there is a huge difference between wanting to keep him and wanting to keep him at a reasonable price. Dorsey would seem to have the leverage with Greg Jennings, Wes Welker and Mike Wallace all unrestricted free agents. Jennings and Wallace are expected to hit the open market.
So even if the Chiefs are unable to get Bowe’s name on a new contract, they could go hard after Jennings or Wallace.
While they are trying to get a deal done with Bowe, they also have other significant free agents that will be key to their offseason, including Branden Albert, Dustin Colquitt and Glenn Dorsey.
