Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe expects to regain his Pro Bowl form.

Why?

Well, Bowet told USA Today he lost over 10 pounds through a workout regimen and a healthy diet consisting of fish and vegetables.

“I made the initiative to be in better shape,” Bowe said.I"’m getting older, and talking to the old vets, the only way you last longer is to be in better conditioning. I took that to the heart and am training extremely hard this year.”

Bowe said he expects to be featured heavily in the Chiefs’ offense, including going in motion before the snap on a lot of plays, and he knows he needs to be in good cardiovascular shape for that.

“I’m moving around, doing lot of motion, so I want to be as fit and in as good a shape as possible,” Bowe said. “I feel lighter, and it’s definitely because of what I’m eating and how I’m treating my body. That’s the main reason why I’m feeling so explosive."

In the first year of a five-year, $56 million contract that includes $26 million guaranteed, Bowe caught just 57 passes for 673 yards. He was also arrested for possession of marijuana and could face a suspension from the NFL after pleading guilty to two lesser charges and paying fines and court costs.

"I made the initiative to be in better shape," Bowe said. "I'm getting older, and talking to the old vets, the only way you last longer is to be in better conditioning. I took that to the heart and am training extremely hard this year."
