Navorro Bowman released per his request
Navorro Bowman has been released Friday per his request.
Bowman had his snaps reduced during Week 5 by a coaches decision and he expressed his frustration in a post game interview. Earlier Friday rumors began to swirl that the 49ers had been shopping him, and now he has been released. With the 49ers in the middle of a rebuild, drafting Reuben Foster and the emergence of Ray-Ray Armstrong has allowed the aging and injury prone Bowman to become expendable. He is still capable of producing LB1 numbers but he just hasn't showed consistent production so far this year.
