  Chiefs | Dwayne Bowe to retire with Kansas City    Thu May 16, 09:03 PM

Free-agent WR Dwayne Bowe (Browns) signed a one-day contract with the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, May 16, to announce his retirement.

Footballguys view: Bowe hadn't played in the NFL since 2015 during his one season with the Browns. His career had some highlights, including a 2010 season where he had over 1,100 yards receiving and a whopping 15 touchdowns. However, things fell apart towards the end and that's the way many may remember him. A first-round pick of the Chiefs in the 2007 NFL draft, Bowe now officially moves on to the next chapter of his life.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe to be cut    Wed Mar 16, 02:48 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe will be cut Wednesday, March 16.

Footballguys view: Bowe had $9 million in guarantees last year, and he only had five catches for 53 yards in 2015. This move clears up $3.4 million for the Browns, and it may mark the end of Bowe's time in the NFL.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe likely gone    Wed Feb 24, 12:36 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe will likely be cut by the Browns after hauling in just five catches last season. 'Dwayne Bowe, I know who he is,' head coach Hue Jackson said. 'All of these questions about players who are on our team now, they will be addressed as we go forward.'

Footballguys view: Bowe looked like one of the best #1 receivers in the league at his peak, but he has not aged gracefully since getting a 56 million dollar deal from the Chiefs in 2013. Somehow he got nine million guaranteed from the Browns last year, but Bowe has zero fantasy value right now.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe makes first catch    Fri Nov 6, 12:08 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe had three catches for 31 yards in a 31-10 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Bowe looked surprisingly functional for a player that took so long to catch his first ball as a Brown. We'll see if he remains a bigger part of the offense vs. Pittsburgh. He's not worth a pickup yet, but Josh McCown throws a ton and could generate value if it keeps going in this direction.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe has been inactive for four of Cleveland's last six games. Head coach Mike Pettine said the top-four wide receivers are entrenched in their roles, leaving Bowe on the bench barring an injury to someone ahead of him.

Footballguys view: The Browns paid Bowe $9 million guaranteed when they signed him in free agency. Awesome.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe feeling better    Sat Oct 3, 09:27 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) said he is feeling as good as he has since he suffered his hamstring injury in August.

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners are not all over Bowe..nor should they be. We'd have to see him healthy, dialed in and productive on a consistent basis before we would recommend Bowe in deeper leagues. Bowe has been on the field for only eight offensive snaps this season but is expected to be active for the Week 4 game against the San Diego Chargers.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe not 100%    Tue Sep 29, 01:20 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is not 100% healthy yet and playing him now could set him back more, according to offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Bowe was inactive in the season opener and again in Week 3 despite not being on the injury report all week.

Footballguys view: The Browns have no intentions of cutting Bowe right now and insist that he will factor into their plans at some point this year.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe staying on roster    Mon Sep 28, 06:20 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe will remain with the team and is expected to contribute as the season goes on, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said the team has not considered releasing Bowe.

Footballguys view: Here's the reason why Bowe is staying on the roster (per Spotrac.om) -- Dwayne Bowe signed a 2 year, $12,500,000 contract with the Cleveland Browns, including a $3,500,000 signing bonus, $9,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $6,250,000. In 2015, Bowe will earn a base salary of $2,650,000, a signing bonus of $3,500,000 and a workout bonus of $100,000. Bowe has a cap hit of $4,500,000 while his dead money value is $9,100,000. 'Nuff said.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is unlikely 100% healthy yet, according to offensive coordinator John DeFillippo.

Footballguys view: Even when he's 100 percent, he's not really 100 percent as he never shows the ability everyone thought he had coming out of college. We'd avoid him healthy or not.

Footballguys view: Bowe is already looking like a big free agent bust for the Browns and Justin Gilbert a top 10 draft bust. Rob Housler is active over the rookie Bibbs at tight end.

  Browns | Coaches pushing Dwayne Bowe    Fri Sep 11, 02:06 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe is being pushed by the coaching staff, but him listed as third string on the depth chart isn't a sign they're down on him. 'I told Dwayne we expect more out of him,' offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said. 'It was disappointing that he got hurt so early, and it's not all his fault that he hasn't been on the field. He's been great since he stepped foot in this building. He really has. For a guy that's had as much success as he's had, he's bought into what we're doing, bought into our plan, bought into playing like a Brown. He's just had a little bit of a case of bad luck.'

Footballguys view: Bowe is only on the roster because of his guaranteed money. He's unlikely to be any better than he was in Kansas City last year, when he caught zero touchdowns.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe won't be cut    Fri Sep 4, 08:09 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe won't be cut, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Bowe played nearly the entire first half in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, and caught one pass. 'He needed to play,' Pettine explained of Bowe's lengthy play time. 'There's no substitute for live game reps. He'd taken so few snaps during training camp, now here we are on the brink of the season and want to make sure that he is as close to game shape as possible, and that's impossible to do when you're inactive.'

Footballguys view: Bowe might remain a Brown because of his guaranteed money, but he doesn't deserve a roster spot in typical fantasy leagues.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe will start    Thu Sep 3, 07:04 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe will start in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3, with backups. Bowe is supposedly fighting for a roster spot.

Footballguys view: Bowe has almost never lived up to the hype nor has he found a way to elevate the dreck he's had throwing to him for most of his career. That won't change here and leaves him as a a WR5 at very best.

  Browns | Duke Johnson, Dwayne Bowe start    Sat Aug 29, 07:29 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson (hamstring) and WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) were in the starting lineup for the third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: Johnson is an exciting rookie running back to watch. He can make defenders miss in the open field, and Johnson is a threat to score anytime he touches the ball. Right now, Johnson is coming off the board at RB39 (8.09) in 12-team PPR leagues.

  Browns | Terrelle Pryor has support    Fri Aug 28, 09:16 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring) had shown enough in training camp prior to injuring his hamstring that he should make the team, WR Dwayne Bowe said, and CB Joe Haden compared Pryor physically to Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson.

Footballguys view: Really, it's not like there is a murderer's row of talent at wide receiver for the Browns. Pryor is intriguing enough to tempt, but don't succumb. The quarterback situation is a mess, the offense looks terrible and he's likely got a learning curve in order to just be good. Keep an eye on him, but don't put him on your roster.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is participating in practice Sunday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: Bowe is getting a late start on the preseason, but he is a veteran who should be ready with little preparation. It still won't help his chemistry with his new quarterbacks, but Bowe is only really emergency depth this year in a toothless Browns passing attack.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) said he feels good enough to play Week 3 of the preseason but that that decision is up to the team.

Footballguys view: Almost never reaching his full potential, Bowe now will have to produce with a mess at quarterback in a very tough division. We see him as no better than a WR4 this year.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe returns to field    Sat Aug 22, 11:59 AM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 22.

Footballguys view: Bowe is back in action, but will he care enough during the regular season to even matter for fantasy owners? We're not seeing a lot of value here. Bowe has always had talent, but a questionable QB situation plus motivation issues has us avoiding him in fantasy drafts.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) has a chance to participate in practice next week, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

Footballguys view: Not a great list of injuries but it's just Week 2 of the preseason. We will worry if it's next week. Duke Johnson is the biggest worry as he is the best potential fantasy value in a shaky offense.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe still sidelined    Sat Aug 15, 12:10 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is not participating in practice Saturday, Aug. 15.

Footballguys view: Bowe is giving younger players like Taylor Gabriel and Travis Benjamin chances to show what they can do in his absence. The Browns signed him to play a big role, but that could change if he doesn't get healthy and show that his last two years in Kansas City were an aberration.

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) is still out Tuesday, Aug. 11, with a hamstring injury. He's unlikely to play in the preseason game Thursday, Aug. 13.

Footballguys view: Ascendant second-year receiver Taylor Gabriel should get a chance to shine despite being pint-sized. He could push Bowe to be the leading wideout on the team this year.

  Browns | Dwayne Bowe misses scrimmage    Fri Aug 7, 09:40 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe (hamstring) did not participate in the scrimmage Friday, Aug. 7.

Footballguys view: Bowe was inconsistent in Kansas City, so it's not all that great to see him unable to get on the field in Cleveland. We're not sure who the quarterback will be, so chemistry isn't quite a concern yet, but will be soon. Even if he is 100 percent healthy this year, the lack of a stable quarterback, the threat of a heavy run game and his own inability to reach his potential make him no more than a WR5.
