[ESPN.com] The Chiefs announced on Friday that WR Dwayne Bowe has signed his franchise tender. Bowe is due about $9.5 million this season after the two sides failed to reach a long-term deal by the July 16 deadline.
It was unclear whether Bowe would join Kansas City for its trip to St. Louis for a preseason game Saturday. The team will resume practice at its facility near Arrowhead Stadium next week.
The more pressing question is whether Bowe can learn new coordinator Brian Daboll’s offense in time to play against Seattle on Aug. 24. The Chiefs wrap their preseason schedule the following week at Green Bay, and the regular season starts Sept. 9 against Atlanta.
