It's been a rather quiet offseason between the Kansas City Chiefs and receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Now, it appears the Bowe has interest in joining the Miami Dolphins. According to Bowe's and Vontae Davis' twitter exchanges:
Unfortunately for Miami fans, this doesn't mean much, as the Chiefs franchised Bowe this season. Still, these exchanges do stir up the possibilities for the 2013 offseason.
And back in mid-June, Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star asked around the organization:
They admitted they just had no idea which Bowe would arrive at the practice facility, and that unknown is dangerous considering such a financial leap of faith. If the Chiefs extend Bowe and he flops, it’ll put Pioli in a pinch when left tackle Branden Albert and defensive end Glenn Dorsey have expiring contracts.
To that end, it would not be surprising to see K.C. entertain the idea of parting ways with Bowe in the immediate future. Bowe, however, must recognize the implications, because the Chiefs are in much better position to make the postseason than the Dolphins.
With a much better defense, running game and quarterback situation, Kansas City is Bowe's best option for remaining a standout No. 1 receiver. Plus, the Chiefs need Bowe, as he is Matt Cassel's best receiving target.
