The San Francisco 49ers released linebacker NaVorro Bowman Friday, per his request. General Manager John Lynch announced the move, as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that the team had been trying to move him all week. "During that time, NaVorro was a key component of one of the best teams in the League and his passion for the game allowed him to quickly become a favorite of our Faithful fans".
"Although NaVorro may be moving on, he will always be looked at as one of the great players to wear the red and gold".
Rather than trade Bowman, though, the Niners elected to release the four-time All-Pro outright, as made known by the team's website. A Defensive Player of the Year caliber season for Bowman came to an agonizing end in the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks in the NFC title game in 2014 when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL on a goal-line stand. But he has not been able to have the same recovery from tearing his Achilles last season and it is clear at this point in his career that he is far from his physical peak.
Rookie Reuben Foster boasts considerably superior athleticism while Ray-Ray Armstrong has two picks in his last two games.
With Bowman gone, the 49ers basically discarded the last major piece of their team that reached Super Bowl XLVII. The chances of him netting the award are all but over but, if he can play at that level down the stretch, the 49ers will know they have Bowman's replacement and a player who can be a cornerstone of an improving young defense. He's signed through the 2019 season with a base salary of $6.75 million this year and $8.7 million next year, per Spotrac.
He should be. The 49ers have won two of 21 games over the past few years, and even if better days are coming they likely would have arrived after he was gone anyway.
