CHIEFS’ WR DWAYNE BOWE ABSENT AT MINICAMP TRAINING
Mon, 18 Jun 2012 10:41 AM EDT

Kansas City Chiefs’ offensive coordinator Brian Daboll stood in the middle of a practice field barking directions at QB Matt Cassel, who went on to drop back and throw an ideal pass to Jonathan Baldwin.

For the time being his No. 1 wide receiver. Sports scores

The Kansas City Chiefs opened their compulsory 3-day minicamp without WR Dwayne Bowe, who hasn’t yet signed his franchise tender. That implies Bowe is not under contract, and technically is excerpted from the last series of workouts before training camp in late July.

“You like to have your excellent players with you, definitely, because every year you have got to develop new team chemistry,” Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel recounted. “I believe he’ll be here eventually, and we’ll need to get him caught up.”

There was no outlining “eventually” — could be later this week, could be the beginning of camp in St. Joseph, Mo, and it might be just before the start of the regular season.

The only thing that’s certain is that Bowe will be playing catch-up when he arrives and has to learn the new offense being installed by Daboll, who replaced Bill Muir as offensive coordinator.

Kansas City has otherwise had perfect attendance at just about every workout, voluntary and mandatory alike, permitting the Chiefs to quickly pick up Daboll’s system.

While there are some similar elements to what the Chiefs ran under Muir and Todd Haley, their prior chief coach, there are enough distinctions that WR Dexter McCluster said at 1 time that his “head was spinning.”

Bowe is coming off a season in which he caught 81 passes for 1,159 and 5 TDs from a patchwork group of quarterbacks. He’s caught 356 passes for 4,927 yards and 36 touchdowns in his 5-year career, even making his 1st Pro Bowl 2 years ago.

His franchise tender is valued at $9.5 million.

Bowe’s absence has meant more repetitions with the 1st team for Baldwin, who has made significant strides during his first full offseason.

The former 1st-round pick missed out on the whole process last season because of the lockout, and Baldwin didn’t truly hit his walk till late in the year. But he’s managed to carry over much of that momentum into what has been a powerful series of workouts.

“I’m just trying to build every day,” he announced, deftly side-stepping any query about Bowe missing practice. “Everybody here is just attempting to get better.”

Crennel claimed one of the priorities of the Chiefs’ 3-day minicamp will be to get their new offense in place, making an allowance for a seamless transition into training camp.

There are signs of that going down.

Baldwin made sufficient room on 3 straight pass plays that he managed to haul in passes from Cassel with relative ease. Wide receiver Terrance Copper added 2 impressive over-the-shoulder grabs, while the running game behind Peyton Hillis started to pick up steam.

“We have a new offensive coordinator, so that the largest thing is I want the offense in place,” Crennel related. “I require the men to comprehend the language and then execute the offense. That is the biggest thing.”
