The Kansas City Chiefs became the first team in over 60 years to go an entire season without a touchdown by a wide receiver.
General manager John Dorsey made it clear this week that the position will be a top priority in the offseason.
"I think that the stats speak for themselves," Dorsey said. "We're going to have to do some work there."
"At the time, we thought we had some players that could help us," Dorsey explained. "But then as you go into the free agency process, you missed on a couple of guys. And then as the draft unfolded there were certain guys that you had pegged in certain situations that they may have peeled off a step or two before you so then you still have got to go with the best player, and we kind of stayed true to that."
Minus Bowe, quarterback Alex Smith wouldn't have a single returning wide receiver with more than 20 catches.
"We have to put some more pieces around him," Dorsey said of Smith. "I think he's lived up to what he thought he would be."
