CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns have signed free-agent wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, a legitimate down-the-field target to help their passing game.
Bowe spent the previous eight seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. The 30-year-old’s 532 receptions are the second most in club history and he scored 44 touchdowns.
The Browns have been in need of a No. 1 wide receiver since former Pro Bowler Josh Gordon was suspended by the NFL for the 2015 season for drug violations.
Browns general manager Ray Farmer says Bowe is a player who “adds a big, tough and physical presence to our group.”
Bowe scored 15 touchdowns in 2010, but has had only 13 times in the past four seasons. He has had two 1,000-yard seasons and at least 57 catches in each of the past three seasons.
