It's certainly understandable that Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is happy to be back with his team after signing his franchise tender Friday.
See for yourself what Bowe had to say as he handled some details prior to getting ready to work.
Back in the swing of things. Did physicals & passed conditioning test. Excited to b w/my teammates & get back to business...go chiefs! — Dwayne Bowe (@DwayneBowe82) August 17, 2012
Reaction to Bowe's arrival and signing of the tender was mostly positive, if you can sift through all the offbeat comments and find it. And why not? Bowe has proven that when healthy, he can produce 70 to 80 catches and more than 1,000 yards in a season. The touchdown total was down from 2010, but Bowe is still a big and physical target who is clearly the Chiefs' main man.
Give Bowe some credit for being smart: He missed all of training camp -- no players look forward to it that much -- and he's going to get seriously paid this year. Plus he's arrived in time to possibly get some preseason game action.
