The Kansas City Chiefs are “actively pursuing” a new contract with wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Ian Rapoport reported Thursday night on NFL Network's "NFL Total Access" that the Kansas City Chiefs are actively pursuing a new contract with Bowe, according to sources close to the situation.
Rapoport adds that Bowe’s representation has met with the Chiefs, and negotiations are expected to continue in the coming weeks.
It was largely expected entering the offseason that Bowe would become one of the top wide receiver targets available on the free agent market. Apparently new head coach Andy Reid has other plans, as the team has shifted gears under the new regime.
Rapoport says that Reid was a big fan of Bowe when the wide out was coming out of LSU. While former general manager Scott Pioli may not have been interested in signing Bowe to a long-term extension, it looks like Reid would like to keep the dynamic wide receiver in the mix.
Bowe caught 59 passes for 801 yards and three touchdowns last season for the Chiefs. The 28-year-old has totaled 5,728 receiving yards and 39 touchdowns over six years with the club.
