Dwayne Bowe can drive 55

The new $56 million man is No. 55.

Kansas City Chief receiver Dwayne Bowe comes in as the 55th best offensive player in the NFL in ESPN.com’s top 100 offensive players project. Bowe, who just signed a five-year, $56 million contract to stay with the Chiefs, is a difference maker. He has piled up numbers while playing with less-than-stellar quarterbacks.

Being the top option of new quarterback Alex Smith in Andy Reid’s offense should only increase Bowe’s value. Next time we do this, I could see him rising higher on the list.

In another AFC West note:

Here’s a fun read from former Oakland executive Amy Trask. She may have left the team in May, but from reading this, you can tell she still has Raiders’ blood running through her.
