The Kansas City Chiefs highlighted a huge day for the franchise with a new five-year deal for wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
After playing as the team’s franchise player last season, there was talk of slapping him with the tag again or even letting him hit free agency. With the deadline to apply the franchise tag rapidly approaching, the team finalized the contract that will keep their No. 1 threat in the passing game around to catch passes from new QB Alex Smith.
Bowe, never one to miss a good photo opportunity, immediately thanked the Chiefs on Twitter, with a picture of him sitting by the pool.
On vacation til I got the call that changed my life. I wanna Thank the Hunts Family & The Chiefs Organization.
Chiefs fans should not only be excited about keeping Bowe around, but also finding out where he got those kicks!
