On Friday afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the San Francisco 49ers were fielding offers for veteran linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

The San Francisco 49ers have released linebacker NaVorro Bowman in a move that cut ties with one of the few remaining links from the team's last run of success.

"Thursday evening, 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 signed a four-year contract extension with team options through 2022, but the 49ers are apparently willing to send that contract elsewhere.

Even if the three-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro linebacker were brought in for depth purposes, the Colts could use his talents.

Analysts Showing Optimistic Trends For Netflix, Inc. (NFLX)
They now have a $235.00 price target on the Internet television network's stock, up from their previous price target of $200.00. MKM Partners reissued a " buy " rating and issued a $195.00 target price on shares of Netflix in a report on Monday, July 10th.


Bowman, who has an $11.99 million salary cap number next season, doesn't appear to be in the 49ers' long-term plans. He ranks seventh overall in tackles (505) during that span, despite missing 20 games to injury over two of the past three seasons.

Since returning from the knee injury he suffered during the 2014 NFC Championship Game against the Seattle Seahawks, Bowman hasn't been the same dominant linebacker.

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.

Trevathan is now back but John Timu is injured, and the Bears certainly have an open opportunity for someone like Bowman to be able to step in and contribute. The pair instead elected to release Bowman and give him a choice of where he went next.
