Dwayne Bowe tweeted his goodbyes and now the Kansas City Chiefs have confirmed it: D-Bowe has been released.

Here are the comments from the Chiefs on his release.

Owner Clark Hunt

"On behalf of my family and the entire Chiefs organization, I'd like to thank Dwayne for his contributions over the last eight seasons. During his time with the Chiefs, Dwayne established himself as one of the best receivers in club history. We wish Dwayne nothing but the best as he moves forward."

GM John Dorsey

"This was a tough decision to make. Dwayne is a team-first guy and he holds a number of team receiving records. We felt this was in the best interest of the club at this time."

Head coach Andy Reid

"It's been a pleasure working with Dwayne the past two seasons. He showed up every day with a great attitude and did everything we asked of him. He was a productive player for a number of years here and I have a lot of respect for what he was able to accomplish."
