Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is feeling himself now.  Andy Reid and the Chiefs showed Bowe the money in a deal that will pay Bowe $11 million a season for five years. Bowe is loving life right now, and that has him feeling elite.  Bowe recently told the Kansas City Star that he feels like “he’s a top five wide receiver right now.” “Personally, I feel like I’m top five, most definitely,’’ Bowe said. “My play shows it. Running (with) the ball, blocking, all the (qualities) of a wide receiver, I have. Whatever category people want to put me in, to me I’m always going to be number-one on this team, and that’s all that matters.’’ Bowe tried to downplay the addition of quarterback of Alex Smith, who after years of catching passes from the likes of Tyler Thigpen, Brodie Croyle, Tyler Palko, Bradie Quinn, and Matt Cassel, should be the best quarterback he’s ever played with. “I can’t say that,’’ Bowe said. “I haven’t caught a pass from him yet. I’m sure as time goes down and the chemistry (unfolds), I’ll let you guys say that. Great player. After that, when the weeks go by, I’ll be able to tell you a little more. As a football player and a leader, that’s who you want at the position. “It’s another quarterback. My job is to catch the ball no matter who’s throwing it. Now I have somebody that actually has a name for himself, has proved himself. I’m sure that will make it easier, but like I said, I haven’t caught a pass from him yet.’’
