Cross one potential UFA WR off the board:

@AdamSchefter
Chiefs didn't use tag on WR Dwayne Bowe because they didn't have to. Chiefs and Bowe have reached agreement on a five-year deal.

Am I the only one who wasn't in love with Bowe anyway?  A ton of drops and a lot of (hate this term but it applies) garbage time stats.

to argue your point how often have the chiefs games not been garbage time for their offense?

Im a big Bowe fan and was hoping the Bills would make a play for him if he reached the market

Im not surprised by this as one thing I like about Andy Reid is that he is aggressive when it comes to resigning his teams core players

Bowe re-signing in KC is very good news for the other UFA wide receivers.

Please give me another weapon opposite of Bowe? Qb sucked, no other WR or TE to draw coverage, Charles was either brilliant or a non factor. The guy did drop a few but is a huge target with great speed and route running. Would have loved to seen him on our side lines.

He was the only WR on the market that fit the profile of what we're looking for.. big and can catch when covered.  Not to say a Wallace wouldn't be useful, but I'm not seeing a good fit anymore.  Looks like the draft is it.

It would NEVER happen with our lack of QB's.  Nix screwed us hard by not addressing QB already.

And YES even though many Bills fans think he sucks, Alex Smith is a huge upgrade over Fitz.

Wallace is going to be greatly overpaid by Miami.

Good for KC, probably good for us too. I'd rather build through the draft then shell out big bucks to FA wideouts

I agree.  From watching the games this year with an interest in him, he drops the ball, shy's away from contact, and picks up  stats in garbage time.  Not impressed.  I'd take Braylen Edwards over him.

It will be interesting to see what he signed for.  My guess is he would have commanded more than SJ in freee agency which would make it a no go for Bflo anyway.  Nice player, but overrated I think.  They need to fix this problem in the draft - free agency for depth only.

Strange it didn't get posted here first.


I'm glad he's not coming to Buffalo.  Dollars better spent elsewhere.

If Bowe can resign with the Chefs then God Blessed we should be able to resign a stinking guard!!!!
