Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe raised plenty of eyebrows today when he told ESPN The Magazine about a specific type of “importing” in which Art Vandelay never specialized.
Per Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the team has not yet addressed the situation. Teicher points out that word of Bowe’s words came after coach Todd Haley had been exported from the media room.
“Dwayne Bowe is moving into the critical stage of his young career,”
Haley recently said, according to Teicher. “You have to make a jump if you want to be talked
about with certain receivers.”
Earlier today, Bowe struggled at practice, dropping some passes and slipping and falling after catching others.
He could be having an even more difficult afternoon and evening. The only good news is that enough Chiefs have left since Bowe’s rookie year, during which the “importing” occurred, to allow any remaining players who were involved in the practice to plausibly use the “it wasn’t me” defense to their wives and/or girlfriends.
Either way, Bowe’s indiscretion could cost him in various ways.
