Report: Dwayne Bowe agrees to report to Chiefs

Hours before the Chiefs open their preseason schedule at Arrowhead Stadium, reports out of Kansas City say that unsigned franchise player Dwayne Bowe is about to rejoin the team.

KMBC 9 News in Kansas City is reporting that Bowe has reached an agreement with the Chiefs, and that he was flying to Kansas City on Friday afternoon.

Because Bowe and the Chiefs did not reach an agreement before the July 16 deadline for franchise players to sign long-term contracts, he can now only sign a one-year deal with the Chiefs. So he has presumably decided to sign his franchise tender, which guarantees him a 2012 salary of $9.5 million. He’ll then become an unrestricted free agent again in March, or get franchised again with a tender amount of $11.4 million.

The Chiefs’ No. 1 receiver, Bowe caught 81 passes for 1,159 yards and five touchdowns last season.

    Guess he was waiting for the end of training camp to report.

    Now, come out and have your biggest year yet, then force KX to pay you. If they don’t, someone else will.

    I think he heard Jon Baldwin’s footfalls coming up from behind, overtaking him on the depth chart.

    So did he agree to a long term deal that he will sign after the season or did he just sign his franchise one year deal? It’s confusing when they say he’s agreed to a contract

    Chiefs should be favored to win the division. Broncos are close, Chargers are overrated, Raiders are crap
