The Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed that WR Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender. He will now officially join the team and has been added to the 90-man roster.

Just like we predicted, Bowe signed his tender the very second the Chiefs concluded their training camp practices in St. Joe.
Bowe will now have to spend the next couple of weeks trying to catch up with Brian Daboll’s offense. He likely has had the playbook for a while, but there is no telling how much he has studied it. Also, since Bowe didn’t attend any of the OTA practices earlier this offseason, he is likely to be far behind his teammates.
But don’t expect that to matter to head coach Romeo Crennel and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. They are likely thrilled to have a weapon like Bowe back in the fold and I am sure they will spend considerable time getting him comfortable with the new scheme.
There is almost no chance of Bowe playing in this weekend’s game against the St. Louis Rams but he will be able to see action in the final two preseason games against the Seahawks and Packers.
The Kansas City Chiefs are at full strength!
