While the Kansas City Chiefs had one of the most impressive turnarounds in recent NFL history, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe had one of the worst statistical seasons of his career. Now, with a full offseason ahead, Bowe plans to improve himself physically so that he can put his best foot forward in 2014.
Bowe plans to work on his endurance during the offseason so that he can be “more explosive and faster.”
“One thing I want to work on — my endurance,” Bowe said, via the Kansas City Star. “I was really, really tired that last game.”
One way he will do that is by changing the way that he eats.
Bowe wouldn’t provide details on how he will change up his diet, but he did say that he was playing between 212 and 214 pounds this season. Next season, he hopes to play at under 210 pounds.
“I probably want to play at 208 and try to be as quick and swift as possible, because that’s the kind of receivers that Andy had when he was in Philly,” Bowe said. “I’d like to be more explosive and faster than I was this season. I just want to work on my work ethic a little more and become quicker and faster so I can be like DeSean Jackson and those speedy, quick guys.”
If Bowe can return to top form next season, the team will benefit from having a top target on the outside for quarterback Alex Smith.
It is still expected that Kansas City will bring in another wide receiver or versatile tight end at some point through free agency or the 2014 NL Draft, but Bowe still hopes that he will be the No. 1 guy.
