"I'm getting older, and talking to the old vets, the only way you last longer is to be in better conditioning. I took that to the heart and am training extremely hard this year." said Bowe. Turning 30 years old before the season begins, he has lost 10-12 pounds in order to stay healthy and maintain his speed/agility. He has also been working out at wide receiver Larry Fitzgeralds' camp at the University of Minnesota. Bowe signed a five-year $52 million dollar contract with $26 million guaranteed in 2013 but hasn't lived up to that deal yet.
Bowe has been a fantasy bust thus far. He also hasn't played a full 16 game season since 2011. Last year, under new head coach Andy Reid he had his second worst season of his career, putting up a 57/673/5 line. He is currently ranked as a WR38 in FFToolbox's preseason rankings.
