Dwayne Bowe "Ecstatic" With Kansas City Chiefs Moves


Dwayne Bowe went on the radio to talk about the new look Kansas City Chiefs and express the optimism many are feeling regarding the new direction of this franchise.

The only franchise in the NFL that had more trouble at quarterback than the Chiefs were possibly the Arizona Cardinals. So it comes as no surprise that Dwayne Bowe was ecstatic when he saw the Chiefs get Alex Smith, a quarterback who led a team to the NFC Championship game.

“When they made the move I was ecstatic,” Bowe said on WHB in Kansas City, via Sports Radio Interviews. “I was like, ‘Wow, great move.’ I hadn’t met him yet but from hearing [guys] in San Francisco he’s a real cool guy, a leader. That was a great move. … I’m excited to work with Alex.”

But having a solid quarterback throwing him the ball wasn’t the only reason he decided to stay with the Chiefs instead of testing free agency.

“It’s all about loyalty. … I’ve been there since ’07 and it’s been some great years and good people rolling in and out of that building.”

But with Alex Smith, and a very talented running back in Jamaal Charles, adding wide receiver Donnie Avery and tight end Anthony Fasano, this offense could be explosive.

“It’s going to be special, it’s going to be great. Andy knows what he’s doing, he’s a powerhouse when it comes to putting an offense together,” Bowe said. “Grabbing [Donnie] Avery was a real, real plus. Him and one side and then [Jonathan] Baldwin, and then me. I just can’t wait to see it all together. It’s like a puzzle, he’s a big jigsaw puzzle, man. He’s putting all the puzzle pieces together, and I can’t wait till all the pieces connect and we start working out and training. It’s going to be exciting. It’s going to definitely be a turnaround from last year.”
