Dwayne Bowe to the rescue?

These three teams have the quarterback in place, they just need help. 

According to Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports, Bowe wants out of Kansas City, so, the following clubs need to inquire about the Chiefs wideout who's pieced together back-to-back 1,000-plus receiving-yard seasons. 

 

Miami Dolphins

The 4-3 Dolphins are easily the second-best team in the AFC East right now, despite their unimpressive receiving corps.

Brian Hartline leads the team in receptions and yardage, but 253 of his 555 yards came in one game at the end of September. 

He has caught eight passes for 100 yards since then. 

General manager Jeff Ireland has never been timid in his attempts to improve his roster.

Bowe would be the true No. 1 wideout Miami was after two years ago when they added Brandon Marshall in free agency. 

At 28-years-old, Bowe is in the prime of his career and would undoubtedly help speed the development of talented rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

 

St. Louis Rams 

Recently, the Rams defense hasn't been as stout as it was to start the year. Then again, they faced Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady in consecutive weeks. 

The clear issue that's stopping St. Louis from progressing is its offense.

Sam Bradford isn't provided enough protection from his offensive line, but there's a major void at the wide receiver position as well. 

With an abundance of picks from the recent Washington Redskins draft trade, and barely any money tied up at their wide receiver spot, the Rams pulling the trigger on a trade for Bowe certainly would make sense. 

 

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings are in a similar predicament as the Rams, but they have their franchise left tackle in place in Matt Kalil. There's elite talent on the offense with Percy Harvin and Adrian Peterson

Christian Ponder could use more help at the wide receiver spot, as the team doesn't have at traditional chain-moving possession guy. 

Bowe is that kind of receiver. 

He would undoubtedly help Ponder mature into a consistent signal-caller. 

The team must make an upgrade over Michael Jenkins and Jerome Simpson by at least considering making a move for the Chiefs star wideout.
