The Buffalo Bills could be a team interested in Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who recently requested a trade.
According to Greg Maiola of the Bleacher Report, Buffalo would be a good fit for Bowe, who has caught 34 passes for 423 yards and three touchdowns. Bowe is currently in a one-year deal worth $9.515 million and will be a free agent at the end of the season.
Maiola said adding a player of Bowe’s capability would take pressure off of wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who is often double-teamed, and would open up the Bills’ offense.
“If the Bills bring in Bowe, the team can better utilize Stevie Johnson,” the Bleacher Report said. “With two top-notch receivers, Chan Gailey can move both players all around his formations and find creative ways to get the two open. Ryan Fitzpatrick has the arm, he just needs another receiver.
If a deal went through, Maiola said the Bills would likely give up a couple draft picks.
Adding Bowe would definitely make things interesting in the AFC East, especially with the Bills, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Miami Dolphins so close in the standings. Such a move could make the Bills a contender for the division title.
The league’s trading deadline is Tuesday, October 30 at 4 p.m.
