Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?

Will Dwayne Bowe's baggage scare teams away?


By Gregg Rosenthal
Around The League Editor

Conventional wisdom says there should be three top receivers available in free agency this year: Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, and Dwayne Bowe.

They each have the skills to be a "No. 1" target but they also have some knocks against them. Jennings is coming off an injury-plagued year. Wallace is a speed merchant that hasn't exactly developed into a complete receiver. Bowe's downside is harder to define.

"I am scared to death of Dwayne Bowe," one scout told SI.com's Peter King. "Like him a lot, but not sure what we'd be buying if we signed him. Too much baggage."

Bowe didn't have the best reputation early in his days after getting drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs. His propensity for drops matched his up-and-down effort. (And up-and-down weight.) Bowe has mostly avoided negative headlines the last two seasons, but his reputation for selfish behavior clearly still persists.

I have little doubt Bowe will get paid big bucks regardless. King mentions Jennings, Wallace, and Brian Hartline as this year's biggest receiver targets, but Bowe has the most well rounded skill set of any one of them. He's put up big numbers despite shaky quarterback play, even if Bowe is the master at garbage time production.

The biggest concern here is how Bowe will react to earning big money. He's played his best the last two years while playing for a new contract. He won't get Vincent Jackson money, but Bowe should do very well even if he scares some teams to death.

This is good thinking though. Really advanced, actually, because I hear the NFL is going away from traditional scoring and moving to fantasy football scoring.

Bowe has caught go ahead scores late against Minnesota and Indy in the last couple years and that was without even putting much thought into it. Also, tied a game against the Faid that almost put us in the postseason the year before last if Succop didn't get blocked a minute later.

a lot of those games that the last TD would have won we were in striking distance because BOWE made great TD catches.

Yeah, baggage.

Like when he was banned from participating in high school athletics in Virginia.

Or when he wrestled his college WR coach to the ground by the neck in a fit of rage.

Or when he failed multiple drug tests that his college HC swept under the rug, or the one he failed while at the NFL combine.

Or that he's an entitled ****stain, playing only when he wants to, and blaming headaches when he doesn't.



Oh, wait. That's Percy Harvin. The guy who actually HAS BAGGAGE, yet the media ignores it.

Bowe's the bad guy. Hope like hell we re-sign this goddamn menace to society.

Bowe is the type of player we didn't used to let get away. We may have been spendthrift to a fault in the past at a few positions, we may have had some tough negotiations, but the cornerstones like Holmes and Gonzalez were locked up.

Might as well keep it honest at least, I mean if the top there are slappy MC slapperson and his blind brothers then he has a point.

Off topic, but I read his user name as Jason's Auto which would mean Sauto is the wrong reference. But then I may be wrong.
