Report: Browns sign Dwayne Bowe
Thursday March 19th, 2015

The Cleveland Browns will sign wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to a report from Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Bowe was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs out of LSU in 2007, and had spent his entire eight-year career with Kansas City before being released last week. He reportedly visited Cleveland over the weekend.

Bowe, 30, had 532 receptions for 7,155 yards and 44 touchdowns in 118 games for Kansas City. In 2010, he led the league with 15 touchdowns and was named to the Pro Bowl. Last season he did not catch a touchdown for the first time in his career. His career 60.6 yards-per-game average is second all time among Kansas City receivers.

Bowe will join Cleveland after one of the Browns's top receivers, Josh Gordon, was suspended for the entire 2015 season for a violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy.

Cleveland finished last season with a 7-9 record and in last place in the AFC North. The team was 27th in points scored and 23rd in yards gained.
