Every indication before this seemed to suggest that Bowe was prepared to shop himself around the league for the best offer. I can see where Williamson is coming from here. Reid understands that they could use a solid receiver for the years to come and he’ll have an opportunity to convince Bowe that he’ll not only be paid, but better utilized in the new offense.
It’s certainly a possibility, but I would wait to see what he says about the idea before assuming that he’ll be back next season.
We have Bowe listed as the No. 7 best available player in our Top 50 Free Agents list.
