CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says free agent wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has agreed to contract terms with the Cleveland Browns.
Bowe, who spent the past eight seasons with Kansas City, is expected to sign the deal on Thursday, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team has not confirmed the agreement.
With Cleveland, Bowe will become a No. 1 receiver and fill the void created when former Pro Bowler Josh Gordon was suspended for one year for multiple violations of the NFL's drug policy.
A big, athletic receiver, Bowe had 60 catches for 754 yards last season but no touchdowns. Bowe led the league with 15 TDs in 2010 and has averaged 66 catches per season.
The Chiefs released the 30-year-old Bowe last week.
NFL Network first reported Bowe's deal.
