Report: Dwayne Bowe, Chiefs Agree To Terms

According to KMBC 9 News in Kansas City, Dwayne Bowe and the Kansas City Chiefs have finally agreed to terms.

The news was tweeted out by a camera man but the story has already been picked up by and Pro Football Talk. Still, nothing is official until the Chiefs confirm the signing. Chris Mortenson of ESPN has said he hasn’t heard anything concrete yet but that he is aware of the local reports.

If Bowe has signed, it can only be for one year. The tender offered to him by the Chiefs was about $9.5 million. While Bowe can only play on a one-year deal, it is possible that the Chiefs and Bowe could have worked out additional details. The original tender is the least amount the Chiefs could pay Bowe so it is possible that his staying away was a ploy to get himself more money this season. It is also possible that incentives were added to the deal. Bowe is still eligible to be franchised again so it may be possible that his camp wanted a stipulation added to the deal that the Chiefs would not use the tag on him again after this season.

Regardless, it appears Bowe’s return is imminent. We may even see him on the sidelines tonight with his teammates.

    Bout GD time!

  • Danny W

    Well hopefully he’s in shape and ready to go. I don’t care about the business end at this point.

  • shaytron

    he has almost a month to learn the new offensive system. he’ll be good to go week 1. GO CHIEFS!

    Bowe will make our offense top 10. That’s right you heard it here first.
    I bet they agreed to at least not tagging him next year and maybe some incentives. If that is the case then Bowe has EVERYTHING to play for to get that long term big money deal whether it with us or the more likely not.

    NO TEAM WILL BE ABLE TO STOP THIS OFFENSE. PERIOD. With Bowe in the fold now, Baldwin IS THE BEAST, Breaston, McCluster (Jack of ALL trades and MASTER of ALL), Wylie (ST HERO), Boss, Moeaki, Maneri – absolute genius decision to return him to his natural position as he played TE in college AND the following crew that is just as good with their hands as they are with their legs – JC, Hillis (in contract year Beast mode), the totally unexpected Shaun Draughn who is also in Beast mode in camp and showed it for real tonight, plus Gray has major potential – oh and don’t forget that Daboll is going to use DMC at RB too – count on it. YES I know it was just the 1st meaningless preseason game against a not so good team but we dominated them better than the Saints did. We put up 14 points in the 1st quarter scoring on 70 and 72 yard drives that where masterful blends of run and pass. Even our depth showed with the 2nd and 3rd string guys scoring in every quarter and strong defense held the lead. PLUS We saw a fraction of what Daboll has up his sleeve and we already looked great!
    I think Bowe has been hearing about Baldwin’s rise to Beasthood at camp. I think he has heard from his friends about the attitude and playoff potential this team has across the board. ADD BOWE and have the starters play the entire game and I say they exceed the Dick & Al Show. That’s right you heard that here first too. Finally I truly HOPE Bowe has an elite year and we sign him long term.
