Dwayne Bowe inked a two-year, $12.5 million contract this past offseason with the Cleveland Browns, with $9 million guaranteed. With star receiver Josh Gordon set to miss the year, Bowe was supposed to help fill the void left by Gordon’s absence. Instead he ended up being an extremely expensive bit player.

WATCH: Dwayne Bowe Finally Makes A Catch For The Cleveland Browns

Kansas City decided that Dwayne Bowe was not worth the big contract they were scheduled to pay him so they go rid of him. For some odd reason the Cleveland Browns saw reason to pick him up and give him a two-year deal with $9 million guaranteed. Health has been an issue for him with the Browns making it hard for him to contribute--but on Thursday night he finally did.This is what...

It looks like Dwayne Bowe is currently not in the Browns future plans

When wide receiver Dwayne Bowe first signed with the Cleveland Browns, many thought that this would help out their offense. Well after six games, Bowe has been inactive four times and no one knows exactly why. The Browns don’t even use him on special teams, so he is basically just collecting a check for doing nothing.
