The day after the Kansas City Chiefs concluded training camp, Dwayne Bowe signed his franchise tender and joined the team. Coincidence? Probably. We wouldn't want to speculate that Bowe was all too happy to miss training camp since there is absolutely nothing to suggest that his decision to sign the tender had anything to do with the end of training camp, but here he is, ready to play now that it is over.
That Bowe missed training camp could be a problem. The Chiefs have a new offensive coordinator in Brian Daboll, who is putting in a new offense that Bowe now has pick up on and make sure he has down pat by the time that the season starts. Daboll has worked with Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel and quarterback Matt Cassell in the past so they are picking up the offensive quickly and now Bowe has to play catch up.
It is highly unlikely that Bowe will play in Saturday's preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, which will leave Bowe two preseason games and three weeks of practice before the regular season gets underway.
The Chiefs have an offense full of talent and now they have Bowe back, who had over 1,000 yards receiving in each of the last two years. Once Bowe gets into practice, sorts things out and gets on the same page of everyone else, the Chiefs could have a dynamic offense. Now, with the franchise tender signed, he can finally get to work on pushing that Chiefs offense to another level.
