Dwayne Bowe Led NFL In Broken Tackles Among Wide Receivers In 2011

As if the Kansas City Chiefs needed any more of a reason to make re-signing Dwayne Bowe a major priority this off-season, the Chiefs main website pointed out a great statistic recently when they uncovered that the team's star wide receiver led the entire NFL in broken tackles by a wideout or tight end in 2011. It's a total that speaks to Bowe's toughness at the position, growth as a receiver and ability to make a play for an offense that needs it.

On the season, Bowe had 81 receptions for 1,159 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns. In five full seasons with the Chiefs, Bowe has averaged around 1,000 yards and 70 catches per season. It's that consistent level of top notch production that the Chiefs simply cannot afford to let go -- not without knowing just how good Jon Baldwin will be, the injuries to others like Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki, and the uncertainties at quarterback.
