CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Browns have released wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.

Bowe signed with the Browns back in March 2015 after spending 8 seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Bowe played in seven games and had just five receptions for 53 yards after signing a two-year, $12.5 million free agent contract. That deal, drawn up by then-general manager Ray Farmer, included $9 million guaranteed.

Bowe’s release came within minutes of the team cutting ties with veteran linebacker Karlos Dansby, the Browns’ leading tackler last season.

The 31-year-old Bowe came to the Browns with high expectations, he led the NFL with 15 touchdown receptions in 2010.

But Bowe sustained a hamstring injury in training camp and then barely got on the field for Cleveland’s coaching staff. He was inactive for eight games and did not make a start.

Bowe has 537 career catches for 7,208 yards and 44 TDs.
