49ers release LB NaVorro Bowman

NaVorro Bowman's time as a member of the San Francisco 49ers came to a surprising end Friday when he was released.

Bowman signed a four-year contract extension with team options through 2022, but the 49ers are apparently willing to send that contract elsewhere. This season, Bowman started each of the team's first five games of the season, where he registered 38 tackles and one pass defensed.

And while Morrow has played well in sub packages and Bowman isn't the player he once was (has a 45 Pro Football Focus grade through Week 5), Bowman would bring a stabilizing presence that the entire defense could benefit from as Oakland attempts to right the ship after losing three consecutive games.

Trying to piece a competitive defense together while undergoing a rebuild, the Colts signed a handful of players on one-year deals.

With starting middle linebacker Marquel Lee injured (ankle) and out indefinitely, Oakland has already reported that they'll be placing their hopes at Major League Baseball in the undrafted, 6-foot, 215-pound rookie linebacker Nicholas Morrow against the Chargers Sunday. The 49ers kept both linebackers around and they are glad they did. With Foster in the wings and getting closer to playing full time, Bowman wants out of the organization. Bowman will nearly certainly get a chance with another team in short order. Rapoport cites Bowman's injury history and large base salary as barriers to the trade. Teams tried, but ultimately, San Francisco ended up releasing the talented linebacker. He will likely take a pay cut, but Bowman will be able to play for a contender again. Still, the 29-year-old linebacker should have something left in the tank and is a brilliant leader.
