ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher expects Kansas City to cut WR Dwayne Bowe if the two sides can't agree on a reduced contract.
Bowe, who turns 31 in September, just wrapped up the second season of a five-year, $56M contract. He's owed an absurd $11M in 2015 salary, but just $1.75M of that is guaranteed and the salary cap ramifications of a cut are minimal because of his one-game suspension in 2014. The cap-strapped Chiefs clearly can't afford to pay $11M for a wideout who caught zero touchdowns in 2014 and three in 2013. Bowe may balk at taking a paycut, instead looking to land with a more wideout-friendly quarterback and scheme. Jan 5 - 9:20 AM

Asked to assess Dwayne Bowe's 2014 performance, Chiefs GM John Dorsey offered "I think he's a really good teammate."

Bowe, 30, finished a pedestrian 2014 season with a 60-754-0 receiving line. His stats were 57-673-5 in 2013. "His numbers were very similar to the year before," Dorsey said. "I think he’s a really good teammate." Bowe seems to have slowed down the past two seasons, but quarterback Alex Smith's ultra-conservative playing style has a way of making wide receivers look slower on the field. Bowe is owed a whopping $11 million in 2015 salary and bonuses. $1.75 million of his base salary is guaranteed.

Dwayne Bowe had three catches for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Chargers.

Bowe fumbled at the goal-line on what would have been his first score of the season. He'll finish without a touchdown for the only time in his career. Bowe led the Chiefs with 87 targets this year, but continued to be limited by Alex Smith. His 60 catches and 754 yards were a slight upgrade on his 2013 season. Kansas City should look to upgrade on Bowe as their No. 1 receiver this offseason.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid confirmed Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) will play on Sunday versus San Diego.

Bowe has practiced very little in recent weeks, but he'll be out there in a must-win game for Kansas City. Chase Daniel will have a full supporting cast of Bowe, Travis Kelce, Albert Wilson, and Jason Avant versus the Colts.

Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) remained sidelined Thursday.

Back-to-back DNPs are never a good sign, but we're guessing Bowe is just saving his bullets for Sunday's must-win game against the Chargers. His status will be updated on Friday.

Dwayne Bowe (shoulder) is not practicing Wednesday.

Bowe sprained his shoulder during last week's loss at Pittsburgh. He'll likely try to gut it out this week with everything on the line against the Chargers.

Dwayne Bowe sprained his shoulder in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

Bowe was never announced with an injury on Sunday, and played 52-of-66 snaps. It's likely a day-to-day type ailment, one he'll probably play through in this week's climactic showdown with the Chargers.
Mon, Dec 22, 2014 01:17:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught 6-of-8 targets for 57 yards in the Chiefs' Week 16 loss to the Steelers.

The six-catch effort comes after Bowe was held to three or fewer grabs in five-straight games. That's what happens when Alex Smith is your quarterback. Bowe will do battle with the Chargers' burnable secondary in Week 17.

Dwayne Bowe (illness) is active for Week 16 against the Steelers.

He'll be a borderline WR4 in a dream matchup with the Steelers' shaky secondary.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:30:00 AM

Dwayne Bowe (illness, questionable) didn't practice all week, but is expected to play Sunday against Pittsburgh.

Coach Andy Reid said he's planning on having Bowe out there against the Steelers. Pittsburgh is without SS Troy Polamalu and LCB Ike Taylor. If Bowe were ever going to score a touchdown, this week is as good a bet as any.

Dwayne Bowe (flu) is not practicing Thursday.

Bowe also sat out Wednesday's session. He'll likely be fine for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, but is a WR4 even in ideal matchups like this one. Bowe has zero touchdowns in 13 games played this season.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 12:52:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught 3-of-7 targets for 69 yards Week 15 against the Raiders.

Bowe's 37-yard catch in the second quarter was his longest reception of the year, and he was ruled out of bounds on another long catch. Bowe had more than 45 yards in a game for the first time since Week 10, and it was only the fourth time all season he surpassed 60 yards receiving. Even with the "breakout," Bowe should not be owned in standard leagues.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:04:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe caught 2-of-3 targets for 29 yards Week 14 against the Cardinals.

Bowe had a hurdling 22-yard reception that had the world questioning reality in the second quarter, but he only managed one other reception on the day and now has fewer than four receptions in each of his last four games. He can be dropped in 10- and 12- team leagues.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 08:11:00 PM

Dwayne Bowe was held to two catches for 18 yards in Kansas City's Week 13 loss to the Broncos.

Bowe was shut down by Broncos CB Chris Harris. He finished with five targets, behind only Jamaal Charles. Bowe can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues. He's yet to score a touchdown this season, and is on pace for just 64 catches and 759 yards.
Mon, Dec 1, 2014 12:57:00 AM

Dwayne Bowe caught 3-of-5 targets for 42 yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Bowe may have fallen asleep in the first half, as he drew only two targets as Alex Smith struggled to get anything resembling "offense" going. Smith finally started driving the ball after the break, but it was too little, too late in a game where the Chiefs let the 0-10 Raiders hang around far too long. Bowe's physical skills have declined, but there's no reason for him to be as lightly utilized as he's been this season. He's barely on the WR4 map.
