Dwayne Bowe agrees to terms with Browns-- Thu Mar 19 2:45 pm --
The Browns have agreed to terms on a two-year deal with former Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe, a league source confirmed for Northeast Ohio Media Group.

FF Today's Take:This is a logical destination for Bowe as the Browns are void of receiving options with Josh Gordon facing a year-long suspension and TE Jordan Cameron now in Miami. Bowe's fantasy stats have declined every year since his high-water mark in 2010 where he posted 206.6 FPTs on a 72-1162-15 line. Bowe and Brian Hartline are penciled in as the top two receivers with Bowe's fantasy ceiling topping out as a WR3.
Chiefs release Dwayne Bowe-- Thu Mar 12 2:00 pm --
Dwayne Bowe’s eight-year tenure as a Chief has come to an end, as the team made news of Bowe’s release official on Thursday. Bowe, a 30-year-old receiver whose salary cap number is $14 million for 2015, has averaged 58 catches and 713 yards in his two seasons under coach Andy Reid.(Kansas City Star)
FF Today's Take:The signing of Jeremy Maclin yesterday and Bowe's huge cap number for 2015 made him expendable. If he's designated a post-June 1st cut, Bowe would count $9 million over the next two years. Bowe should have no trouble finding a new team albeit at a reduced salary. Given the right situation, he could have WR3 fantasy value in 2015.
Jeremy Maclin reunites with Andy Reid-- Wed Mar 11 1:21 pm --
Fantasy value takes a hit
Jeremy Maclin officially reunites with Andy Reid and returns to Missouri.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that the 26-year-old's contract with the Kansas City Chiefs is for five years and $55 million dollars. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:The Chiefs will need to clear some cap space which could mean the release of WR Dwayne Bowe. Maclin missed 2013 with a knee injury then posted his first 1000-yd season last year in Chip Kelly's high-volume offense. Maclin may be the Chiefs No.1 wide receiver but he'll get no such volume in Kansas City. Andy Reid's offense doesn't typically favor one target, as a result Maclin's fantasy value takes a hit. Low-end WR2 will likely be Maclin's value this summer.
Chiefs expected to part ways with Bowe-- Thu Mar 5 10:04 am --
FF Today's Take:It's difficult to envision anyone trading for Bowe given his contract ($10.75 million owed in 2015) and the Chiefs would be eating a total of $9 million over the next two years if he's designated a post-June 1 cut. The Chiefs have already released WR Donnie Avery, WR A.J. Jenkins and TE Anthony Fasano.
