The Kansas City Chiefs continue to make moves in order to right the ship under new head coach Andy Reid with the signing of wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on Monday, March 4 according to ESPN's Adam Schefter:
The Kansas City Chiefs reached agreement on five-year contracts with receiver Dwayne Bowe and punter Dustin Colquitt on Monday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
The contracts with Bowe and Colquitt allowed the Chiefs to use their franchise tag on left tackle Branden Albert.
Only a week after agreeing to acquire quarterback Alex Smith from the San Francisco 49ers in a trade that will become official on March 12, the Chiefs sign Bowe, Dustin Colquitt and franchise tag Branden Albert making it clear that the team is prepared to compete in 2013.
Although considerable moves have been made to turn things around after an ugly 2-14 finish to the 2012 NFL season, only time will tell if the moves made by Kansas City will truly result in a drastic change in results next season.
Signing Bowe was a crucial move for the Chiefs with Smith coming in to take over under center. Bowe's presence downfield gives Smith a target in the passing game to go along with two talented running backs coming out of the backfield in Jamaal Charles and Peyton Hillis.
