49ers release linebacker NaVorro Bowman

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Na Vorro Bowman warms up before an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Rams in Santa Clara Calif. Monday Sept. 12 2016

On Friday afternoon, the San Francisco 49ers officially released linebacker NaVorro Bowman at the request of the four-time All-Pro.

"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", Lynch said in a prepared statement. Teams tried, but ultimately, San Francisco ended up releasing the talented linebacker.

Bowman has been one of the NFL's best inside linebacker for several years and has battled his way back from serious lower extremity injuries to remain effective at 29 years old.

He recorded at least 143 tackles and was named to the All-Pro first team in each of those three seasons. The eight-year veteran suffered an Achilles tear in Week 4 of 2016 that caused him to miss the remainder of the season. He has sustained two major injuries to his left leg since January of 2014.

Pro Football Focus ranked him the No. 63 overall linebacker among 86 qualifiers.

Especially after the 2017 NFL Draft addition of linebacker Reuben Foster and the free-agent signing of linebacker Malcolm Smith.

The eight-year veteran was on the sideline more often than not this past week, much to his consternation. During his career, he has appeared in 89 games (74 starts) and registered 808 tackles, 12.5 sacks, four interceptions, returning one for a touchdown, seven forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries and 28 passes defensed. "Nobody likes coming out of the game, but I'm a team player", Bowman said after Sunday's overtime loss to the Indianapolis Colts, according to Chris Biderman of NBC Sports Bay Area. Foster even got reps during training camp at the position and was put in charge of calling out plays while there. Ray-Ray Armstrong had been filling in for Foster at WILL alongside Bowman and has played well the past two weeks.

According to ESPN, Bowman has not been happy with his playing time so far this season.
