Yep, it's about that time of year when stories such as this one bloom.
"Right now I'm about 210 (pounds), and I'm moving good, and I feel like I'm in the best shape of my life," Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe told the Kansas City Star on Thursday. "The way [OTAs have] been going, it's only going to get better."
Head coach Andy Reid said: "I think Dwayne came back in phenomenal shape, that's one thing. It looks like it out here. He's really moving around well. Look forward to getting to camp where it actually counts, but he's in the right frame of mind."
It's nice to hear after Bowe has shown up to workouts in previous years in some form far away from tip-top. Bowe toned up with the help of a nutritionist and a personal trainer, and he said he's looking forward to being more of a leader on and off the field this year ... it's all very standard fare for mid-June. Bowe frustrated fantasy owners the past couple of seasons after posting some big numbers in 2010 and 2011 and failing to follow up. This year, you can't be frustrated if you draft Bowe. First of all, you're not drafting as anything more than a WR4, and expectations should be tamped down as long as risk-averse Alex Smith is under center. The Chiefs are trying to get him to throw down the field more often, but it's not as if Smith is going to turn into Jay Cutler overnight. I'll be surprised if Bowe reaches 900 yards this season. He turns 30 in August.
