Kansas City Chiefs: Dwayne Bowe retires a Chief

“You don’t know what this means to me and my family,” Bowe told Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.

Former Pro-Bowl Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is the latest former Chief to sign a one-day contract and retire with the organization.

The Chiefs announced Bowe’s retirement as a Chief on their official Twitter, earlier today, “We have signed Dwayne Bowe to a one-day contract. He will retire as a Chief.”

Earlier this offseason, Bowe’s teammates, former Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and linebacker Derrick Johnson both retired as Chiefs after signing one-day contracts.

Selected as the 23rd overall pick in the first round of the 2007 draft by the Chiefs, Bowe, 34, spent eight years with the Chiefs before being released in 2015.

After being released by the Chiefs in 2015, Bowe spent his final season as a member of the Cleveland Browns the same year. Bowe has not played professional football since.

While a Chief, Bowe racked up 7,155 yards in receiving, third all-time in Chiefs franchise history. He amassed 44 total touchdowns and compiled three 1,000 receiving yard-seasons 2008, 2010, and 2011.

Bowe’s most seminal season with the Chiefs, however, was his Pro Bowl 2010 season. With Matt Cassel at quarterback, Bowe posted 1,166 receiving yards, 15 touchdowns, and was the NFL receiving touchdowns leader that year.

Fittingly, Bowe snagged one last touchdown from reigning-MVP Patrick Mahomes today.

“You don’t know what this means to me and my family,” Bowe told Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
