The Cleveland Browns are in rebuilding mode and would prefer to give a lot of their young guys a look.

According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, some on the Browns’ coaching staff would prefer to move on Dwayne Bowe. However, with $9 million guaranteed in salary the next two years, that might not happen quickly.

Bowe, who is still recovering from a hamstring injury, played and practiced very sparingly in the preseason. When he did get a chance to make a statement in the fourth preseason game, he left many on the staff underwhelmed.

Despite Bowe still being injured as of last week, the Browns released Terrelle Pryor, who was oft-injured, too, but may have promise converting from quarterback to receiver. The fact that Bowe remains on the roster has puzzled some.

Bowe struggled the past few years in Kansas City, where he was the highest-paid among a Chiefs receiving corps that went without a touchdown reception for all of 2014. But with Bowe already receiving a $3.5 million signing bonus and a guaranteed $2.65 million salary this season and $2.85 million of his $6.15 million salary for 2016 also already guaranteed, parting ways with him quickly won’t be cheap.

Bowe is a Ray Farmer signing and will likely have this season to prove his worth.
