WR Franchise Tag: $10.36 million
Which player do the Kansas City Chiefs value more, Branden Albert or Dwayne Bowe?
Who is the bigger priority?
Because Bowe was franchised in 2012, the Chiefs would owe him 120 percent of last year's salary, which would give him close to $11 million in 2013.
With around $16.1 million in cap space, a figure that could inflate after cuts, the Chiefs could certainly afford Bowe as the team's franchise player again.
Bowe is a traditional No. 1 receiver; a big target who can line up on the perimeter and often beat the opposition's No. 1 cornerback.
The offensive-minded Andy Reid would likely love to keep him in Kansas City.
