There’s apparently been a rumor making the rounds which claims the Chiefs are thinking about trading wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Such rumors are news to us or you probably would have read something about them in these parts. Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli has heard them, though, and he took some time during an interview on WHB Radio in Kansas City, via SportsRadioInterviews.com, to make sure that everyone knew there was nothing to them.
“I’ll tell you this: I had heard somone…I don’t know if it was said or written? I don’t know which one, but someone told me about it and I will say unequivocally 100% untrue,” Pioli said. “We never talked with anyone about a trade for Dwayne Bowe. I didn’t. Romeo didn’t. No one who would ever have anything to do with a trade called or talked to anybody nor did we field any calls, so wherever that came from I will say unequivocally 100% untrue. We did not talk nor are we looking to talk with anyone about a trade for Dwayne.”
There were reports before the draft that Bowe was thinking about signing the tag out of fear that the Chiefs were going to rescind it. That was contingent on the Chiefs drafting a wide receiver in the first round, but they went with Dontari Poe and Bowe’s status remained unchanged.
It doesn’t look like Bowe’s going anywhere so it’s just a question of whether he plays under the tag or if he signs a long-term deal.
