Dwayne Bowe's Contract Details Revealed

The Kansas City Chiefs made a big splash yesterday when the re-signed WR Dwayne Bowe to a five-year contract, allowing them to use the franchise tag on LT Branden Albert.

Well now we know the details of Bowe’s deal.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Bowe’s deal is worth $56 million dollars with $26 million guaranteed.

Here is the tweet:

The deal locks up Bowe through the 2017 NFL season. For Bowe, the $11 million per year will make him among the highest paid receivers in the NFL.

The Chiefs have made a significant investment in Bowe. This is wise considering the rest of the Chiefs’ receivers are average at best.

The recent signings of Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt proves that the new regime in Kansas City is in win-now mode. The KC brass has also reportedly traded for 49ers QB Alex Smith. Smith may not be the long-term answer at the position for the Chiefs but he is likely gives KC the best chance they could hope for to win in 2013.

It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs approach free agency having spent so much money on their own players.

        A true fan of the team would not want to see the overall health of the team be compromised in any way including overpaying any player. Another casualty of the Pioli regime. This contract reeks of desperation. the cupboard is so bare of WR talent that a guy who drops way too many passes is given way too much money because he is the best WR on the roster, NOT the best in the division let alone the league.

          While I agree I think he was compensated a bit high, I am ecstatic they hung on to him. He does drop to many balls at the worst times, but he also makes some fantastic catches. You can’t “teach” his size and his run blocking is second to none!! Everyone only focuses on the balls that he drops, but the run blocking and crucial catches are always forgotten.

          I find it funny you say he is not the best WR in the division. Then who is? Eric Decker? Robert Meachem? D Thomas? ANYONE on the raiders? ahahahahaha…D Thomas is the only one that you could make a case for, and he drops a lot of balls himself. I was never a huge D Bowe fan, but dude is HANDS DOWN the best receiver in the division.

            Trying to come up with a counter argument, but…….nope……got nothing. All I can say is that D Thomas with Denver has a better skill set in that he is twice as fast as Bowe is, roughly speaking of course.

          Ur crazy….A tru fan I suppose…but crazy. Desperation? What ?

      For the many who kept saying Bowe wanted out of KC, I harken back to a photo shown near the end of his holdout from signing the tag last season. It sjpwed a car which Bowe had detailed into an ultimate Chiefs’ driving machine. All gold and red, with his number 82 on the front seats. Even his comments from the Nike uniform display in NYC,earlier, where, he spoke of remaining quiet on the neogitatations, but, said he wanted to stay in KC, kept getting twisted by so many fans who kept harping he wanted out of KC. I believe those disgruntled fans were only stating their own personal preferences of wanting to see the maligned “stone hands” out of KC. Thank you Mr Dorsey of working diligently to keep him in KC. Now, pair him with some receivers who can get open and catch passes.
      One thing to remember about Dorsey coming from GB. Yes, Aaron Rodgers is among the best, but, their management was able to have several viable options in the receiving corps for him. Even with problems on their offensive line at times, he still coud go through several receivers who were both open and could catch passes. One other thing is when Finley was going into his FA year, the Packers kept 4 other TEs on the roster.

    While I know our teams QB play has been utterly miserable, but I wonder how many times we will see him quit on plays now that he has gotten paid???? I personally think the contract is not that bad considering he could have pushed for more and likely got it since the current new regime might be desperate at the WR position. I honestly expected us to overpay him and I am glad I am wrong. This contract is right in line with what I personally thought he was worth. I am just hoping that he shows that he really wanted this contract and to stay here by not dropping the easy balls. I would rather see him drop the hard, acrobatic catches than to see him drop balls that hit him right in the hands or the chest.
