KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Dwayne Bowe is the latest player to sign a one-day contract with the Chiefs and retire from professional football.

Bowe hadn’t played since finishing his career with the Cleveland Browns in 2015. He had spent his first eight NFL years with the Chiefs, and his 532 career receptions are the most by a Chiefs wide receiver. He ranks second on the team’s reception list behind tight end Tony Gonzalez (916).

The Chiefs’ first-round draft pick, 23rd overall, from LSU in 2007, Bowe started immediately and was a member of the NFL All-Rookie team after a 70-reception year.
