Coach Mike Pettine said that the Cleveland Browns have no plans to cut the veteran wideout despite Bowe playing just eight snaps all season due to a nagging hamstring injury.
“No. It’s a long season,” Pettine said, per Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer. “It hasn’t started out the way that we’ve all — including Dwayne — wanted it to but we’re confident that we’ll get him contributing here sooner than later.”
Bowe signed a two year deal worth 12.5 million with an ridiculous 9 million in guarantees.
Pettine promises that Bowe is “going to play,” while saying: “Dwayne will help us, but he’s just not there yet. The setback that he suffered during training camp, it’s just hard to make those reps up. Now that we’re in a practice week we’re hopeful we’ll get him out there and he’ll contribute as we expect him to do.”
