NaVorro Bowman not expected to be free agent for long

The NaVorro Bowman era has come to an end in San Francisco, but that doesn't mean the standout linebacker won't find another home in the NFL.

Thursday evening, [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.

NaVorro Bowman can still play at a high level, and one lucky team is going to get him for the rest of the year. "We wish him and his family great success".

Rather than trade Bowman, though, the Niners elected to release the four-time All-Pro outright, as made known by the team's website.

Bowman made three-straight Pro Bowls with Fangio as his coach from 2011-2013 before a knee injury forced him to miss all of 2014, Fangio's previous year in San Francisco.

Car Bomb Kills Least 7 in Mogadishu
There has been no claim of responsibility but the al-Shaba extremist group often targets high-profile locations in the capital. A BBC Somali reporter in the area said the hotel, which authorities believe was the target, collapsed after the explosion.

In five games this season, Bowman leads the 49ers with 38 total tackles.

The 29-year-old has spent his entire seven-year career with the 49ers after being selected by them in the third round of the 2010 draft. The team is shopping star LB NaVorro Bowman.

After making a successful return in 2015, including being named to the All-Pro first team, Bowman appeared in four games last season before tearing his Achilles tendon against the Dallas Cowboys. 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.

Bowman did not hide his displeasure after Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, upset over being replaced in favor of Brock Coyle for a couple of series. 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.
