"Nothing concrete" to Bowe rumors

The trade of Gaines Adams won’t do anything to quiet down the trade rumors floating around the NFL, usually on talk radio stations.

One of the more far-fetched ones included the Ravens talking to Kansas City about Dwayne Bowe.  We’re not sure exactly where the rumors came from — we saw it here first — but the rumor included Baltimore sending a second- and fifth-round pick for Bowe.

Old PFT buddy Aaron Wilson confirms there is “nothing concrete” to the rumors.

While Ravens coach John Harbaugh wouldn’t rule out a possible deal of some sort Friday, this one seems unlikely for a variety of reasons. Primary among them is that Dwayne Bowe is a relatively low-cost quality player on a Chiefs team that needs more of them.  Since some tough love in the preseason, Bowe has responded with 15 catches for 181 yards and three touchdowns in four games.

That doesn’t sound like much, but he’s clearly the best receiver on the Chiefs.  He’s cut down on his drops and made a clutch touchdown grab on fourth-and-seven last week to force overtime against the Cowboys.

Bowe is one of the few top-shelf talents on the Chiefs roster; coaching him up seems like a far better option than trading him away.

    If a trade like that were to go through all it would prove is teams like the Chiefs are bad for a good reason. If the Chiefs are crazy enough to have Bowe on the trading block, I’m sure several teams would get involved.

    Chargers will take him. AJ thought all the big LSU passing plays were from a guy named Buster Davis. He might want the guy he was actually watching now.

    Sounds to me like that offer is a little light.

    Could we be having a firesale in multiple teams this year, or at the end of the season?

    “Coaching him up”????? How about “throwing him the m—er f—ing ball!!!”??????????????????????

    This deal makes no sense. Bowe hasn’t shown any unhappiness in KC and he is still a very young player.
    Why would they trade him, for a 2nd and a 5th? He is clearly worth a first round pick! Plus, they just added Cassel. Why add a QB, and then take away his weapons?
    Horrible. Baltimore would more likely go after an older unhappy receiver.

    Remember, this is the same team that broke the bank to sign Cassel before he had even taken a snap and also the same team that drafted a 3-4 DE at #3 overall when they have the worst offensive line in football and Eugene Monroe was sitting right there.

    I bet Vince Young asks himself this question every single day

    The way the Chiefs “rebuild” is by trading away their best young players. That’s why they will always suck, just ask Jared Allen.
