NaVorro Bowman seems motivated

NaVorro Bowman posted this on Instagram on Tuesday, and while it is only social media, it is good to see this kind of attitude. The 49ers get their offseason workout program started next month, so hopefully he'll be ready to roll! Nothing else needs to be said.

NaVorro Bowman playing some basketball

With the 49ers returning for the offseason workout program in April, this strikes me as a potentially good sign. This is certainly a good sight to see. NaVorro Bowman posted this video to Instagram in which he is playing basketball, showing off some of his shake and bake on the court. This obviously does not guarantee he will be back on the football field at 100 percent when the San Francisco 49ers hit the practice field next month for the offseason workout program. That being said, this is a good thing to see. He does not put crazy moves on the defender, but to see him moving around on...

Trent Baalke talks NaVorro Bowman, Jimmie Ward, Kendall Hunter, Brandon Thomas injury recovery

The San Francisco 49ers should have several key players returning in time for the offseason workout program. Trent Baalke discussed some of them. The San Francisco 49ers expect to have running back Kendall Hunter and offensive guard Brandon Thomas available for the offseason workout program, which kicks off in early April. General manager Trent Baalke spoke with the local media on Wednesday, and he expects both to be ready for the program (transcript). MAIOCCO: How is Kendall Hunter? BAALKE: Fine. He has progressed very well. Talk about a guy that works. If anybody can come back from two...

Losing Patrick Willis is bad, but 49ers are well-prepared with NaVorro Bowman, Chris Borland

Patrick Willis had a massive impact on the San Francisco 49ers, which is why it's so incredible that the team will probably be fine without him when it comes to his position. San Francisco 49ers inside linebacker Patrick Willis making the decision to call it a career and retire is one of the most significant pieces of news we'll get in a long time. It's the end of an era -- an era in which the 49ers didn't find a great deal of success, but always got 100 percent from one of the very best players in the league. Nobody can deny how huge of an impact Willis had on the 49ers and just how good...

Rumor: Patrick Willis to retire

The 49ers are expecting Patrick Willis to announce his retirement, according to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports. If this is true, this is a tremendous blow to  the 49ers now and in the future. Willis is the third-best player on the Niners after Aldon Smith and NaVorro Bowman. Willis turned 30 on January 25. He […]

Michael Wilhoite trade rumors would seem to bode well for Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman

There is a report that the San Francisco 49ers are shopping linebacker Michael Wilhoite. If this is true, it could mean good things about Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman's rehab. Wednesday afternoon, Matt Barrows reported that the San Francisco 49ers were shopping Michael Wilhoite for a sixth or seventh round draft pick. This news is not shocking in light of the 49ers depth, but it also might tell us something about the health of Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman. The 49ers went into last season with Wilhoite starting place of Bowman. The team drafted Chris Borland, and it seemed like he...
