Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe had a down year last season. He didn’t get over 100 yards in the regular season, but then he broke out for 150 yards and a touchdown in the Chiefs playoff game. Maybe that playoff game shook off some of the cobwebs and woke him up a bit.
He has shown the potential to be a star receiver in the league. He has shown that he can dominate in games.
He is looking to bring back those expectations this year. He has come into camp in great shape.
“I think Dwayne came back in phenomenal shape, that’s one thing,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “It looks like it out here. He’s really moving around well. Look forward to getting to camp where it actually counts, but he’s in the right frame of mind.”
Here are Bowe’s thoughts on the season via the Kansas City Star:
“I’m just trying to be a leader all around, on and off the field or whatever it takes,” Bowe said. “Staying late, doing extra or showing the guys how to do it. Even in the study room, I get in my group, staying later, just showing them how to do it and how to be in control of it. That’s my main focus this year.”
“Right now I’m about 210 and I’m moving good and I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life,” Bowe said. “The way they’ve been going, it’s only going to get better.”
Bowe is in great shape. He has the perfect mindset of a veteran receiver. Things are looking up. Now we just need to see him produce on the field.
