(WIBW) -- NFL wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is a Kansas City Chief once again.

Bowe signed a one-day contract with the team on Thursday to retire as a Chief.

The Chiefs drafted Bowe out of LSU with the 23rd overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft.

Bowe spent eight years in Kansas City recording 537 receptions for 7,208 yards and 44 touchdowns. He still ranks second in franchise history in receptions behind Tony Gonzalez, and third in receiving yards behind Gonzalez and Otis Taylor.

In 2010, Bowe led the league in receiving touchdowns with 15, earning All Pro honors in the process. From 2007-2015, he also notched three 1,000-yard seasons.

Bowe was cut by Kansas City in 2014 and signed by the Browns. He was released by Cleveland in March of 2016 and hasn't played in the NFL since the 2015 season.

Bowe is the third player to sign a one-day contract and retire in red and gold, joining former running back Jamaal Charles and former linebacker Derrick Johnson.
