Remember last week when Cleveland Browns wideout Dwayne Bowe spoke to the media for the first time since he was a healthy scratch in the team’s loss to the Oakland Raiders? Bowe – getting $9 million guaranteed this season – seemed to be pretty oblivious to the fact he was receiving a ton of criticism outside the walls of the locker room. He sounded stunned to hear about reports the team might be looking to cut him, as if this was coming out of nowhere.
Not to worry, Bowe assured. Come the next game against the San Diego Chargers, he was going to be on the field showcasing his talents.
The result? One target, an incomplete pass. If you bought a ticket to the Bowe talent showcase, you left the game disappointed.
