The Kansas City Chiefs have a receiver in Dwayne Bowe who they want to eventually sign to a longterm deal so we'll be keeping note of the contracts some of the top receivers get.

The latest is DeSean Jackson, who landed a five-year deal with the Eagles that will reportedly pay him $51 million (others say $48 million, whatever). Vincent Jackson got $11 million per year from the Bucs. Santonio Holmes had a five-year, $45 million deal last year.

Where does Bowe land in there?

From what he's done in his career, and his age (27), Bowe should be right there with those $10-11 million per year guys.

There's the argument that Bowe should do a deal now to avoid a potential injury this season before cashing in, and I think that's a good argument (especially since I'm a Chiefs fan and I want Bowe on the team). But Bowe is also potentially a year away from free agency, as he operates on a one-year contract with the franchise tag. The Chiefs can tag him again but then that would be something like $20 million in franchise tag payments in two years.

As more receivers do deals we'll start to get a clearer picture of the range Bowe and the Chiefs will be working in.
