Niners Release Former All-Pro NaVorro Bowman

The San Francisco 49ers released linebacker NaVorro Bowman on Friday after the veteran expressed displeasure at coming out of last week's game.

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. The veteran earned Associated Press First-Team All-Pro honors four times in his career, as well as three trips to the Pro Browl.

NaVorro gave his heart and soul to this team for the last eight years, and for that we are all extremely grateful.

He ruled out discussions on future trade being launched by European Union leaders next week but spoke of possible progress by December.

"Thursday evening, (49ers head coach) Kyle (Shanahan) 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".

Bowman still had two more guaranteed years on his contract after this season, including an $8.7 million base salary in 2018, per Spotrac.

If there is anything, the 49ers gave Bowman the chance to hear offers from the rest of the league rather than sticking to whichever team was willing to offer the Niners compensation.

Bioware Director Mike Laidlaw Leaves Company After 14 Years
To anyone who's taken the time to share feedback and experiences, your awesome cosplays and artistic creations: thank you. Laidlaw had previously hinted at new Dragon Age games, telling fans that there is no planned ending for the franchise.

Bowman experienced two serious injuries - a major knee injury during the 2014 NFC Championship game that forced him out of the subsequent season, as well as a torn Achilles early in 2016.

Bowman has recorded 38 tackles over five games this season for the 0-5 49ers. A full-time starter since 2011, he played only 58 of 76 snaps in an overtime loss to the Colts on Sunday and still finished with a team-high 10 tackles. Lynch and Shanahan called the report "completely false" in a joint statement issued to NBC Sports Bay Area.

First-round rookie linebacker Reuben Foster is set to return to limited action against Washington Sunday after being sidelined with a high ankle sprain since the team's Week 1 matchup against the Panthers. He had been playing next to Bowman when healthy but could eventually slide over to Bowman's middle linebacker spot. In 2018, that number increases to almost $12 million.
