He stayed away from the team in the offseason and has not shown up to the team since it started training camp July 27. He has not signed his franchise tag.

The issue is Bowe will be given a raise and be paid $9.6 million this season when he reports. There is little chance he will stay away from the team once the season stats because he’d lose a ton of money. Plus, he can no longer sign an extension until after the season.

Perhaps he is trying to convince the team to trade him. Please take our poll, do you think Bowe -- it has been reported several times that Bowe is expected to report shortly before the start of the season -- is doing the right thing by holding out or not. We will review the poll results Wednesday.
