NFL.com says that Dwayne Bowe signed his tender.
There was never much of a question about whether Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe would sign his $9.5 million franchise tag tender. The only question was when.
That was answered Friday when the Chiefs announced that Bowe signed on the dotted line.
The timing is very logical. The Chiefs just wrapped up training camp, which any veteran is happy to avoid. Bowe still has more than three weeks to get ready for the season opener. Kansas City has a new offensive system this year under coordinator Brian Daboll, but it shares many of the characteristics from the Charlie Weis days in Kansas City.
Like most holdouts, this one caused a lot of unnecessary chatter. He was always going to show up. We doubt he'll get the gigantic contract he's looking for in Kansas City, so he's playing for a contract once again in 2012 for one of our favorite sleeper teams.
