Report: Chiefs to cut Dwayne Bowe if no trade partner found

Thursday March 5th, 2015

The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to release wide receiver Dwayne Bowe if they can’t trade him, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Bowe is set to make $11 million in 2015, part of a five-year, $56 million contract he signed two years ago.

Bowe, 30, is coming off a 2014 season in which he caught 60 passes for 754 yards and no touchdowns.

Of Kansas City’s 18 receiving touchdowns last season, none came from a wide receiver. Bowe was the last Kansas City wide receiver to catch a touchdown pass, which occurred in December 2013

He has spent his entire eight-year career with the Chiefs, who drafted him in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft.

Bowe has 532 career catches for 7,155 yards and 44 touchdowns.
