KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has a new contract, a new coach and a new quarterback, and with all of that a new sense of happiness when he steps on the field.

Bowe says he’s “blessed to be alive,” and that’s clear in his demeanor.

Once a moody wide receiver with a less-than-sparkling reputation, Bowe can be caught dancing around during lulls in practice and spending every extra second afterward signing autographs.

He says that he’s “just trying to let loose and be joyful,” and he thinks that may help him have one of his best seasons.

He’s in the first year of his new five-year deal, and with quarterback Alex Smith throwing him the ball, is certain that he’ll once again be among the league’s best wide receivers.
