Entering the offseason, it appeared wide receiver Dwayne
Bowe would be suiting up for a team other than the Kansas City Chiefs in 2013.
However, KC and new coach Andy Reid made sure that didn’t happen yesterday,
signing Bowe to a five-year contract extension, according to Albert Breer of
The Chiefs have indeed agreed to a five-year deal with WR Dwayne Bowe.

Under former general manager Scott Pioli, it didn’t appear
that the Chiefs were interested in retaining Bowe. The GM was shown the door
following the season, as was head coach Romeo Crennel, and the new regime
elected to keep Bowe in the fold.
Reid made it clear that he wanted to retain Bowe soon after he arrived in Kansas City. The Chiefs can now pair Bowe and Jon Baldwin at wide
receiver to go along with Jamaal Charles out of the backfield and new
quarterback Alex Smith running the show.
By reaching an agreement with Bowe, the Chiefs were able to
use the franchise tag on offensive lineman Brandon Albert.
