49ers Release LB NaVorro Bowman

49ers Release LB NaVorro Bowman”

"Although NaVorro may be moving on, he will always be looked at as one of the great players to wear the red and gold".

The San Francisco 49ers announced on Friday they have released linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

Bowman still had two more guaranteed years on his contract after this season, including an $8.7 million base salary in 2018, per Spotrac. He appeared in only four contests past year after tearing his Achilles tendon in early October.

The seventh-year veteran was originally a third-round NFL Draft pick of San Francisco back in 2010 out of Penn State.

Earlier on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the team was looking to trade Bowman.

SANTA CLARA, CA - SEPTEMBER 21: Cooper Kupp #18 of the Los Angeles Rams is tackled by NaVorro Bowman #53 of the San Francisco 49ers during their National Football League game at Levi's Stadium on September 21, 2017 in Santa Clara, California. He has made four All-Pro teams along the way, including the year in which he returned from an ACL injury that caused him to miss the entirety of the previous season.

It might seem premature, but Bowman appears to be heading towards the wrong trajectory.

Bowman was one of the key contributors during the team's playoff runs from 2011 through 2013, including a Super Bowl appearance in 2012. During his career, he has appeared in 89 games (74 starts) and registered 808 tackles, 12.5 sacks, four interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, seven forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 28 passes defensed.

Bowman saw 58 snaps during the Niners' 26-23 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5 - 76 percent, which is unusual, considering he is typically in on every defensive snap. In May, Mike Lombardi of The Ringer reported that the 49ers were quietly shopping the linebacker. Many have felt that Foster's natural position on the defense would be at the Mike linebacker spot, which is where Bowman played.

It's possible the move was to light a proverbial fire under Bowman for the rest of the season.
