Morning Addicts! With every weekend we are inching closer and close to the NFL season. We still have a ways to go but the good news is that June is almost over. Tomorrow will be July and then we’ll have just over three weeks until the Chiefs start training camp. Until then, keep your eye on the Dwayne Bowe contract situation If the Chiefs don’t ink him soon. If Bowe doesn’t sign his franchise tender (or a long-term deal) by July 15th, he will have to play the entire season under the franchise tag. Bowe will likely wait all the way until the deadline to give his agent and Scott Pioli time to work out a deal.
The Chiefs are obviously prepared to pay Bowe the $9 million he’d be due if he signs his franchise tag or they wouldn’t have extended it in the first place. That being said, if the Chiefs can ink the Pro Bowl WR and spread those payments out over a few years, I’m sure they would prefer that. Hopefully the sides will get a deal done soon.
Until then, here is your Morning Fix!
