“I’m told, however, there is virtually no chance that Bowe will pass up game checks that amount to $559,000 a week. He skipped offseason workouts while hoping to land a multi-year deal, so he could be behind when he finally reports. The Chiefs have a new offensive coordinator and new playbook; how long that will take him to get up to speed — and how severely his absence might limit his effectiveness — are questions no one can answer,’ wrote Trotter.
The same reason Bowe is expected to show up for the regular season, is the reason why Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Wallace will also show up. They all can’t afford to miss out on game checks.
