Bowe has high hopes for Chiefs' offense
By Bill Williamson
Last year, Dwayne Bowe stayed away from the Kansas City Chiefs in the offseason.
Now that he has a fresh new multi-year contract, Kansas City's No. 1 receiver is totally buying into the team as the Andy Reid era begins.
After the team’s second OTA practice, Bowe talked big to reporters.
"(Jamaal Charles) is going to lead the league in rushing this year and I’m going to lead the league in receptions and touchdowns,” Bowe said. “When we get in full gear and pads and close to the season, it’s going to be a show to watch."
There is no doubt Kansas City should be improved on offense. Reid is a coaching upgrade and Alex Smith is a quarterback upgrade.
Will it be as good as Bowe says it will be? Who knows. But it's good that Bowe is so optimistic. There were times when he seemed to be counting the days to leave Kansas City. Now, he is fired up to play for Reid and with Smith. That’s a positive sign in Kansas City.
In other AFC West notes:
- The Denver Post reports Charles Woodson's visit in Denver has ended. The paper said the two sides may still be talking. Oakland and Carolina are also interested in the 36-year-old safety, who was cut by the Packers earlier this year.
- The Chiefs signed sixth-round pick, fullback Braden Wilson. They have signed four of their eight draft picks.
- Defensive back DeQuan Menzie was claimed by the Lions. He was cut by the Chiefs on Tuesday.
- The Raiders reportedly signed former Penn State quarterback Matt McGloin. He will probably be a camp arm.
