[Kansas City.com] Dwayne Bowe is already getting up to speed with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Pro Bowl wide receiver was on the field with the rest of his teammates Monday for the first time since signing his franchise tender last week, keeping alive the possibility that he could be play in the Chiefs’ preseason game Friday night against Seattle.
NFL rules prevent Bowe from practicing in pads until Tuesday, but he spent time with quarterback Matt Cassel and offensive coordinator Brian Daboll during Monday’s workout.
Bowe has been seeking a long-term deal and was unhappy when the Chiefs gave him the franchise tag, and ultimately decided to skip the offseason program and the start of training camp.
He didn’t have much negotiating leverage — his only option besides signing was to sit out into the start of the season. So he relented when the Chiefs broke their camp in St. Joseph, Mo., signing a contract on Friday to play this season for about $9.5 million.
