According to Jim Trotter of, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is expected to not miss any regular season games.

“I’m told, however, there is virtually no chance that Bowe will pass up game checks that amount to $559,000 a week. He skipped offseason workouts while hoping to land a multi-year deal, so he could be behind when he finally reports. The Chiefs have a new offensive coordinator and new playbook; how long that will take him to get up to speed — and how severely his absence might limit his effectiveness — are questions no one can answer,’ wrote Trotter.

The same reason Bowe is expected to show up for the regular season, is the reason why Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Wallace will also show up. They all can’t afford to miss out on game checks.

  • Head case. He is not a #1 receiver. Hasn't proven it. With Jonathan Baldwin in camp, I say trade him, bench him, smack him set him down teach him how to prepare for a season, act like a man. Teach him something. He thinks he is the Big Show Bowe, I call bullsh1t.
  • This Idiot should be fined for every day he misses training,and should be deducted from his weekly game check. He's another Randy Moss! Pain in the ass grandstander.

Remembering the Charlie Weis Era with the Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Former Notre Dame Fighting Irish and new Kansas Jayhawk head Charlie Weis has not exactly made many friends during his career. His stints as an assistant coach under Bill Parcells and Bill Belichick seemed to go well enough; he collected one ring as an offensive assistant and special teams coach on the 1990 New York Giants team coached by Parcells, and was awarded the other three...

Kansas City Chiefs 2012 NFL Season Preview

In 2010, the Chiefs made the playoffs, winning the AFC West with 10 victories. In 2011, they won just 7 games, but suffered major injuries to Jamaal Charles, Eric Berry, Tony Moeaki, and Matt Cassel. Charles went down for the season week 2. Moeaki missed the entire year, as did Berry, with the exception of 5 snaps in the opener before tearing his ACL. Cassel, meanwhile, missed 7...

Can Matt Cassel lead Chiefs to playoffs?

Who knows? Cassel is coming off another injury, and he’s mediocre to begin with. The Chiefs are getting a lot of love from some analysts, but Cassel is still a huge question mark. Also, here’s this nugget about the Chiefs: There’s no doubt that there’s enormous risk involved in drafting a quarterback in the early rounds, and the Chiefs had other issues facing them in recent...

Baldwin ready for second chance

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Jon Baldwin is determined not to let his return to training camp bring back bad memories. A locker-room fight last August with then-teammate Thomas Jones left Baldwin with a broken right hand, an injury that derailed the first-round pick's rookie season. Nearly a year later there are still more questions than answers as...

Chiefs sign OT Willis; Ugoh retires

The Chiefs signed offensive tackle Ray Willis and waived fullback Taylor Gentry. Kansas City needed to add another veteran offensive tackle when Tony Ugoh decided to retire after being signed last week.

2012 NFL Preview: AFC Training Camp Battles

      Hard to believe, but with training camps having begun and August already here, the 2012 NFL season is mercifully at our doorstep. That means fewer ‘Stephen Strasburg is going to get shut down’ stories and more ‘HOLY CRAP, TIM TEBOW IS SHIRTLESS IN THE RAIN!!!’ stories. Thank. God.   Even better, the 2012 NFL pre-season arrives with no lockout-related...

2012 Fantasy Football Preview: Kansas City Chiefs

If it were not for the St. Louis Rams last season, the Kansas City Chiefs would have scored the least amount of points in the NFL.  Points in the NFL typically translates to points for your fantasy team.  If you were heavily relying on any Kansas City Chief last season, chances are you got burned.   Whether from injury, underproduction, or a comical quarterback unable to...

Players holdout while Americans struggle

Every year NFL players holdout and sit out of Training Camp and this year is no different with Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe and Maurice Jones-Drew are holding out this year.
