Browns released WR Dwayne Bowe.
Ex-GM Ray Farmer laughably gave Bowe $9 million guaranteed just last year, and all the Browns got from the washed-up veteran was five catches for 53 scoreless yards. He was paid over $169,000 per yard. The move clears $3.4 million off the cap for Cleveland (not that they need it). Bowe, entering his age-32 season, may be done in the NFL. He effectively stole the Browns' money last season. Mar 16 - 3:06 PM

Browns declared WR Dwayne Bowe, QB Johnny Manziel, WR Marlon Moore, DB Tramon Williams, RB Glenn Winston, DB Charles Gaines and LB Armonty Bryant inactive for Week 17 against the Steelers.

Bowe finishes his first (only) season in Cleveland with just five receptions in seven active games. Easily the worst free agent signing of last spring, Bowe is a no-brainer cut this offseason.
Jan 3 - 11:36 AM

Dwayne Bowe caught three of five targets for 31 yards in the Browns' Week 9 loss to the Bengals.

Bowe, who has only been active four times this year, hadn’t caught a pass since Week 17 of the 2014 campaign. His role will disappear as soon as Brian Hartline (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) return from injuries.

With Brian Hartline (concussion) sidelined, Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 9.

In a minor miracle for Bowe, it will be the second straight game he's on the 46-man roster. The stunningly-overpaid wideout has dressed only three times this season, playing 19 snaps. His lone reception as a Brown came in the preseason finale, a game where veterans typically sit. Bowe is closer to being out of the NFL than making a 2015 impact.

Browns declared WR Dwayne Bowe, FS Tashaun Gipson, CB Joe Haden, QB Austin Davis, ILB Craig Robertson, TE Rob Housler, and TE E.J. Bibbs inactive for Week 7 against the Rams.

Bowe is a healthy scratch for the fifth time in seven games. Gipson has a high-ankle sprain. Haden remains out with a concussion.

Coach Mike Pettine admitted he's not high on Dwayne Bowe contributing anytime soon with the Browns' top four receivers already set.

Pettine said Travis Benjamin, Andrew Hawkins, Brian Hartline, and Taylor Gabriel are "entrenched" as Cleveland's four-man receiving unit. The Browns guaranteed $9 million of Bowe's two-year, $12.5 million contract, and he's been inactive four out of six games. He's played 12 snaps and failed to catch either of his two targets. The Browns need to bite the bullet and cut the dead weight.

Browns declared WR Dwayne Bowe, RB Robert Turbin, FS Tashaun Gipson, QB Austin Davis, RB Shaun Draughn, LB Craig Robertson, and TE E.J. Bibbs inactive for Week 5 against the Ravens.

Bowe is back on the inactives list after playing last week and failing to reel in his lone target. It's going to be a lost season for Bowe in Cleveland. Joe Haden and Brian Hartline are both active against Baltimore.
Sun, Oct 11, 2015 11:44:00 AM

Dwayne Bowe was targeted once in the Browns' Week 4 loss to San Diego.

He failed to secure the target. Bowe is the Browns' No. 5 receiver behind Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline, Taylor Gabriel, and Andrew Hawkins.
Sun, Oct 4, 2015 07:58:00 PM

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Friday that Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 4 against the Chargers.

Getcha popcorn ready. Dead-legged Bowe was scratched in two of Cleveland's first three games. His return will cut into the snap workloads of rotating WRs Travis Benjamin, Brian Hartline, Andrew Hawkins, and Taylor Gabriel.
Fri, Oct 2, 2015 01:59:00 PM

The Browns continue to claim they aren't considering releasing Dwayne Bowe.

Bowe was a healthy scratch Sunday after drawing one target in Week 2. The Browns have tried to claim his slow start and two inactives in three weeks are due in part to a hamstring injury, but nobody is buying it. Bowe has nothing left, but the Browns didn't realize it when they gave him $9 million guaranteed. They need to cut their losses and move on.
Mon, Sep 28, 2015 03:56:00 PM

Browns declared WR Dwayne Bowe, QB Austin Davis, RB Robert Turbin, DB K’Waun Williams, LB Scott Solomon, TE E.J. Bibbs, and DL Desmond Bryant inactive for Week 3 against the Raiders.

Bowe is inactive for the second time in the season's first three weeks.
Sun, Sep 27, 2015 11:43:00 AM

The Browns continue to claim Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) isn't 100 percent.

"He's limited in what he's doing," OC John DeFilippo said Thursday. It's just an excuse. Bowe isn't on the Week 3 injury report. The Browns have mega buyer's remorse on Bowe, and are trying to justify not playing him. Bowe is a million miles from fantasy relevance.
Thu, Sep 24, 2015 01:19:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe did not catch a pass in Week 2 against the Titans.

He was targeted once and is safe to ignore in re-draft fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 04:58:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe is active for Week 2 against the Titans.

He's making his Browns debut. Bowe is not expected to be a starter, but could mix into three- or four-wide receiver sets.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 11:34:00 AM

Dwayne Bowe will be active for Week 2 against the Titans.

He missed the opener with a hamstring injury. Being active and actually playing are two very different things. The rapidly declining veteran won't see more than a handful of snaps. He's nowhere near the fantasy radar, particularly with inept Johnny Manziel under center.
