Fans may not like this idea. However, it is important to remember that in order to get something big in a trade, you will have to give up something valuable.
Dwayne Bowe is not the easiest player to evaluate. Bowe's career has been a roller coaster. He reached the high point under Haley in 2010, leading the league in receiving touchdowns with 15.
Haley, a former wide receivers coach, played a big role in helping Bowe develop in 2010. If the Steelers and Hines Ward are unable to come to an agreement, the Steelers should make an attempt to get a receiver. Bowe should be their first option.
This would require Kansas City to put the franchise tag on Bowe, who is without a contract. The Steelers must be cautious and not give up a first-round pick for Bowe. Pittsburgh will need that pick for themselves. Bowe has been known for dropping the ball and it would prevent some teams from giving up a first-round pick.
Bowe will also have the benefit of playing with Ben Roethlisberger, who has won two of three of his Super Bowl appearances.
If the Chiefs don't trust Bowe or are unable to come to terms with him, they won't let him slide and will make sure they get something for him if another team wants him.
