Crennel not losing sleep over Dwayne Bowe’s absence

Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe isn’t participating in voluntary offseason workouts because he wants a long-term contract. Bowe is sporting a franchise tag, and he’s yet to sign the one-year, $9.515 million tender.

Coach Romeo Crennel isn’t sweating Bowe’s absence.

We’re going to win with whoever we have,” Crennel told the Kansas City Star. “If he’s with us, we’d like that to happen. If he’s not, than we’re going to work with the guys we’ve got here.”

With Jonathan Baldwin battling a migraine and Bowe missing due to contract displeasure, the Chiefs are suddenly shorthanded at wideout. They’re left with Steve Breaston, veteran special teamer Terrance Copper, former running back Dexter McCluster, and a bunch of unheralded receiver prospects.

Bowe has not yet missed any significant practice time, but the Chiefs have a mandatory minicamp that begins on Tuesday, June 12.

  1. He’ll sign something sooner or later. He recently told Arrowhead Pride or Addict (always get the two mixed up) that he plans to be at training camp and won’t miss any games.

    Franchising Bowe and not Carr was the right move. Bowe is the first true #1 receiver the Chiefs have had in ages. Carr is a solid-but-unremarkable #2 corner who Jerry Jones broke out the funny money for.

  2. D-Bowe has already said that he will be there for training camp he’s gonna get a long-term deal we got the cap money & he’s worth the money I don’t think any of us chiefs fans are losing sleep over it either!

  3. crennel is from the belichick tree got the “keep things rollin thought process”

  4. The only time Romeo loses sleep is when McDonalds brings the McRib back. CHOMP!

  5. I’m not a Chiefs fan, but wondering just where exactly Mr. Bowe is does keep me up at night.

  6. 9 million is plenty for a guy who gets alligator arms when your down one score on your final drive. 1 million is too much for a guy like that.
