NaVorro Bowman remains unsigned

Does the former 49ers star linebacker’s lack of interest corroborate the 49ers decision to release him in 2017? When the San Francisco 49ers released NaVorro Bowman a few weeks into the 2017 season, you could hear the collective gasp from the fanbase.

The team placed Jerick McKinnon on injured reserve, and his injury has me wondering if anyone other than Raheem Mostert will get in the mix. Even if the 49ers add a running back, the player will likely be at or near the league minimum in salary. That means we have a pretty good idea about where the team stands from a salary cap perspective. On Saturday, following the...
