Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe received the club’s franchise tag this year. Talks for a long term deal between Bowe and the franchise never got heated up this offseason, and it’s very possible that the receiver could be playing his last season with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Options now are simple for Chiefs' Bowe
