The Kansas City Chiefs agreed to a new 5-year deal with free agent receiver Dwayne Bowe yesterday, and now the details of the contract are out:
Dwayne Bowe’s 5 yr deal with KC is worth $56M with $26M guaranteed. He gets $11M per year. We’ll see if Wallace and Jennings can do the same

Depending on who you ask, Bowe was considered one of the top-3 available free agent receivers, joining the likes of the Pittsburgh Steelers‘ Mike Wallace and Green Bay Packers‘ Greg Jennings. Now the market is set for those two, who will command a contract worth as much as, if not more than Bowe’s $56 million deal.
Wallace accounted for 64 catches and 836 yards last year.
Despite an injury-plagued 2012 campaign, Jennings has averaged 1,223 yards in the previous three years
Bowe has managed three 1,000-yard seasons in six years.
