There has been speculation that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe wants out of Kansas City. Before the NFL trade deadline, the Chiefs number one wideout was linked to trade talks including the Miami Dolphins and others but, ultimately, no move was made.
On Thursday, Bowe spoke to the media and said that he is not sure where the speculation that he wanted out of Kansas City came from.
“Why wouldn’t I want to stay here? It’s a no-brainer for me,” said Bowe. “I never said I didn’t want to be here. I never said that. This is where it started for me. This is where people know me from. That’s crazy to me.
“When I heard that, I was like, ‘Where did that come from?’ I never said I wanted out. Please clear that up for me. Do I play like I don’t want to be here? I just keep my mouth closed and play the game. That’s what I do. Please tell everybody to stop saying I’m a bad guy. I just don’t talk (to the media much).”
Bowe went on to announce a revelation on his status and happiness with the Chiefs and their organiztion.
“This is where I was drafted,” Bowe said. “When I’m finished, I feel I should be in the Hall of Fame and hopefully win Super Bowls.
“I play the game to win. That’s what I do week in and week out. I feel we can do that here, of course. Things happen, and it won’t be easy, but I try to show (that spirit) and it will become contagious. You’ll see it. It’s coming.”
The fact that Bowe was so open in the interview should comfort Chiefs fans. Bowe rarely gives interviews, so when he does you can expect his complete honesty on the topic.
