See that man in the picture above? His name is Dwayne Bowe. He's a really, really good receiver who has matured over the past three seasons into one of the elite at his position.
In that span, Bowe has eclipsed 1,100 yards twice (last year Bowe played in 13 games and 801 yards) while being thrown to by Matt Cassel, Brady Quinn, Tyler Palko and Kyle Orton. Bowe also had nobody, and I mean nobody, across from him to take away any attention. Steve Breaston went into witness protection last year and Jon Baldwin has been completely useless since being taken.
Yet, people still complain that Bowe isn't consistent or the type of player who can be a No. 1 receiver on a great team. I would disagree intensely. Bowe is the best in the league in terms of footwork along the sideline, he doesn't drop passes and most of all is a great blocker. The LSU product has shown a great work ethic to improve.
If the Kansas City Chiefs let him walk, that would be a huge mistake. All of a sudden, the Chiefs would need to fill a massive hole on a team that already has glaring issues at inside linebacker and corner. Add in a rookie quarterback that has nobody legitimate to throw at, and that's a major problem.
Chiefs: Re-signing your own
