The Kansas City Chiefs have released veteran wide receiver Dwayne Bowe after eight seasons, the team announced on Thursday. Bowe has spent his entire career in Kansas City after being selected Malcolm Smith Authentic Jersey in the first round of the 2007 draft. He signed a five-year, $56 million contract in 2013 that included a $15 million signing bonus.
The move will save the Chiefs $10.75 million in cap space, which will help the team in their contract with former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, whom they are expected to sign on Tuesday. Bowe struggled in 2014 with just 60 receptions for 754 yards and no touchdowns. He last made the Pro Bowl in 2010 when he found the end zone 15 times. Since then, he’s only scored 13 touchdowns over a five-season span.
“That’s Steeler defense,” said linebacker Lawrence Timmons of the goal-line stops. “That’s what we need.”
They need physicality, which they showcased in abundance Thursday night.
It takes resolve to let a team drive 19 plays, 89 yards and 11-plus minutes well into the early fourth quarter and still stop it inches from the end zone. From the 1, Scott Tolzien threw a pass that an outstretched Phillip Dorsett couldn’t handle with Timmons tight in coverage.

This was undoubtedly Mitchell’s best game of the year, and he sealed it with an interception on a deep ball that he returned 26 yards. For a defense that has struggled mightily at times this season — including run-stopping, which is Marcus Allen Authentic Jersey traditionally a strength — the goal-line stops were timely, even if the Colts committed several drops throughout the game.
The Steelers are starting to feel like themselves again on defense, recovering from what Timmons called “on-and-off performances” in the fall.
