In his entire career, Bowe has had one outstanding season (2010), two good ones (2011 and 2008), and the rest have been mediocre to decent. Bowe isn’t a number one guy and hasn’t been for three years. He’d be a nice depth signing, but he’s not the playmaker everyone makes him out to be.
My opinion on that hasn’t changed, but I do think the Browns are better off having him on the team. They could still use a clear #1, with Josh Gordon being suspended, and I’d love to see a first rounder go to one, but I feel a little better about our offense now.
