WR - FA
The Browns have released WR Dwayne Bowe. The Browns signed Bowe to a two-year deal worth $12.5 million, including $9 million guaranteed. He finished the season with a disappointing five catches for 53 yards.
This move was expected considering Bowe's lack of production. His worth ethic has also been questioned, so it's not clear where he'll land next, or if the 31-year-old will be picked up at all.
According to ESPN's Adam Teicher, Dwayne Bowe's future in Cleveland is "in doubt" due to his lack of production. Browns' HC Hue Jackson was asked about Bowe at the NFL Combine and did not give much of an "endorsement" on his future.
Dwayne Bowe fell off of the fantasy radar drastically in 2015. After being released by Kansas City, the Chiefs' all-time leading receiver signed with the Browns and was basically invisible in his new city. Bowe finished 2015 appearing in only seven games and catching 5-of-13 targets for 53 yards.
He has only been active for four games this year and had not had a reception since the last week of the 2014 season.
Bowe will return to the bench when Brian Hartline (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) return.
Cleveland Browns WR Dwayne Bowe has been announced as a healthy scratch against the Raiders on Sunday. It shows how lttile the Browns think of the 31-year-old Bowe considering they rank 29th in passing offense with an average of 187.5 YPG.
Bowe sat out Week 1 and only played eight snaps, earning one target last week with Johnny Manziel under center. Travis Benjamin, Andrew Hawkins, Brian Hartline and Taylor Gabriel all have more upside in the eyes of Cleveland's front office. Don't be shocked to see Bowe ask for his release sometime soon or be on the inactive gameday list for the rest of the year. He's nearing the end of his NFL career.
No word on how much time he'll get on the field. But he is active this week.
Very little fantasy value here. With Manziel under center though, anything could happen.
