49ers rumored to be shopping linebacker NaVorro Bowman

Bowman was drafted in the third round by the 49ers in 2010 and has played for the team since with three Pro Bowl entries and four First-team All-Pro vote-ins. Thursday evening, Kyle and I met with NaVorro, and from our conversation it became evident that going in different directions was best for both him and our team. San Francisco then released Bowman on Friday. When healthy, he has been one of the NFL's best linebackers. The two were key to San Francisco's run of three straight trips to the NFC title game and one Super Bowl appearance. This season, Bowman started each of the team's first five games of the season, where he registered 38 tackles and one pass defensed.

Bowman has spent his entire career with the 49ers up to this point. Reuben Foster went down with a leg injury in the season opener.

The 49ers had been shopping Bowman before the news of the release surfaced per Rapoport, with his $6.75 million base salary thought to be the reason why San Francisco was unable to garner any interest. He missed the entire 2014 National Football League season after suffering a brutal leg injury in the 2013 NFC Championship game.

Overall, Bowman has 709 total tackles, 12 1/2 sacks, 7 forced fumbles and 4 interceptions in his 8 seasons with the 49ers. Bowman also led the team in tackles in four of the previous six seasons (2011-13 & 2015). "Nobody likes coming out of the game, but I'm a team player", Bowman said after Sunday's overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, according to Chris Biderman of NBC Sports Bay Area. In 2018, that number increases to almost $12 million.
