Chiefs receivers coach praises Dwayne Bowe’s conditioning

“He’s in the best shape he’s been in from here,” Chiefs receivers coach David Culley said of Dwayne Bowe. “I know from last year, this is completely different. When he came back from the offseason he was in great shape.”

Much has been made of Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe’s decision to hire a nutritionist and a personal trainer for the first time this offseason, and it has apparently paid off.

“He’s in the best shape he’s been in from here,” receivers coach David Culley said. “I know from last year, this is completely different. When he came back from the offseason he was in great shape.”

Bowe, who turns 30 in September, approached career lows with 57 catches, 673 yards and five touchdowns shortly after signing a five-year, $56 million contract last season.

“At 30, that’s a mindset kind of thing,” Culley said. “There are old 30s and there are young 30s — which 30 do you want to be? Right now, when he came back, he came back as a young 30. That’s what you have to do if you want to play in this league for a long time.”
