Tuesday is the NFL trading deadline, and according to Peter King, Kansas City Chiefs Pro Bowl wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is available.
Evan Silva tweeted last night it would take at least a third round pick to trade for Bowe. The 49ers happen to have two third round picks next year.
So, I ask you: Should the 49ers trade for Bowe?
He’s big, he’s fast and he’s one of the most talented wide receivers in the NFL. He caught 15 touchdown passes in 2010.
On the other hand, he’s a free agent after this season.
And what would the 49ers do with Bowe if they traded for him anyway? Stockpiling receivers when you don’t throw them ball doesn’t make sense.
The 49ers have Michael Crabtree who they are determined to feature, Randy Moss who is good for maybe two catches a game and falls down when defenders draw near for the tackle, Mario Manningham who doesn’t see enough balls, Ted Ginn Jr. who seldom sees the field on a normal down and distance, Kyle Williams who is featured occasionally but mainly is a returner, and A.J. Jenkins who has yet to see the field.
Who am I missing?
