The NFLPA released merchandise numbers for the last quarter, and two 49ers showed up on the top 50 list.

Top 10 injury concerns -- minus Kaepernick's -- entering 49ers camp

Colin Kaepernick’s clean bill of health this week, from his personal physician, should alleviate one of the 49ers’ medical concerns entering training camp. Unlike a year ago, NaVorro Bowman's rebuilt knee isn't one of those issues. But here are 10 other… Continue Reading → The post Top 10 injury concerns -- minus Kaepernick's -- entering 49ers camp appeared first on 49ers Hot Read.

Pete Prisco includes 49ers defensive tackle on his underrated list

Pete Prisco went through NFL rosters and decided on the most underrated player for each team. His pick for the San Francisco 49ers is not surprising, but injuries might keep that player from surpassing expectations. Earlier this week, CBS Sports NFL analyst Pete Prisco picked linebacker NaVorro Bowman as the San Francisco 49ers most overrated player. He pointed to his injury and people thinking he was further along in his recovery than others might think. Considering the questionable talent on the roster, there were not a lot of other options. Prisco is back with his list of underrated...

Pete Prisco lists NaVorro Bowman as 49ers most overrated player

It’s interesting reasoning, but I also don’t think NaVorro Bowman will be on this list next year. CBS Sports NFL analyst Pete Prisco is back with his annual lists of overrated and underrated players. Prisco looks at each team and picks an overrated player and an underrated player for them. He posted the overrated list first, and for the San Francisco 49ers he picked inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman. Here’s what he had to say about the selection: He deserves a ton of credit for getting back on the field after his awful knee injury in January of 2013. He missed all of 2014, but came...

49ers training camp position battle preview: Inside linebacker

The San Francisco 49ers are trying to figure out who to start at inside linebacker next to NaVorro Bowman. We take a look at where things stand in that position competition heading into training camp. The San Francisco 49ers start training camp later next week, which means we’ll start to get some resolution on who will make the roster, and how the starting lineup will look come Week 1. As we come down this final stretch, I thought we’d go through some of the notable position competitions facing the 49ers in training camp. We’re going to focus primarily on starters, but we might mix in...

EXCLUSIVE: NaVorro Bowman interview done by kids at his ProCamp

Bowman explains how he held onto the ball when he “broke his knee,” his biggest QB hits, and more. My favorite part of going to ProCamps is the Q&A that a few lucky kids get to have with the featured player. A few get admittance through Citibank Private Pass and a few more are brought in through drawings and/or contests. It’s an unfiltered interview session and the one with San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman was no different. We have the full transcript: How long have you been playing football? I’ve played football since I was 6 years old. Believe it or not, I’ve played...

Golden Nuggets: Offensive Line/Running Backs Rankings

Wednesday, July 13th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet In keeping up with the position rankings from yesterday, Pro Football Focus ranked the offensive lines and running backs in the NFL. On Monday, PFF ranked the defensive front 7s and QB situations for all the teams. The 49ers ranked 23rd for their front 7 and 31st for the QB situation. The front 7 is an unknown for the 49ers because of new draft pick DeForest Buckner and the 2nd year development of Arik Armstead. NaVorro Bowman is also another year removed from his...

NaVorro Bowman on 2016, his knee, and reuniting with Kevin Durant

The linebacker talked about his basketball skills, working with the kids, how his knee feels. In between all of the drill and games at the NaVorro Bowman ProCamp, the linebacker took a little time to address the media. He discussed many topics including his classmate Kevin Durant joining him in the Bay Area as well as the new 49ers coaching staff. Here’s the full transcript: What does this camp mean to you and how long have you been doing this? I’ve been doing it for about 7 years, since I’ve been in the NFL. I do a camp back at home on the East Coast for my community. It’s a great...

NaVorro Bowman holds his first ProCamps in San Jose

The 49ers linebacker and all the kids had a great time at this weekend’s camp in San Jose. One of the best parts about the off season is that it’s the time when players have camps for kids. There are camps everywhere as several players have camps where they grew up as well as in the city in which they currently play. San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman is one of those players. He held a camp in the Washington D.C. area a couple weeks ago, and then flew back out to the West Coast to have his first camp with ProCamps. ProCamps is one of the most organized facilitators of pro...

PFF thinks NaVorro Bowman has one of the worst ILB contracts

Pro Football Focus is not a fan of NaVorro Bowman’s contract, entirely because he was not fully back to pre-injury form. If he improves on last year, I could see an extension in his future. Earlier today, we looked at what Pro Football Focus had to say about the contract of San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Ian Williams. They listed it among their five best interior defensive lineman contracts. They seemed to ignore his ankle issues, which was the impetus for a relatively inexpensive one-year deal. If he can stay healthy this year, he could be in line for that 5-year, $27.5 million...

Lions release Stephen Tulloch ... finally

It only took four months, but the Lions finally released middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch. The 49ers don’t know exactly what they have next to NaVorro Bowman, but I doubt it will include Tulloch. Way back in February, we had an article about how the Detroit Lions were going to release middle linebacker Stephen Tulloch. Detroit was reportedly going to take care of that piece of business at the start of free agency. Well, four months later, they finally did it. The team announced on Tuesday they have released Tulloch. Naturally, this got a couple people asking if the 49ers will have any...

NaVorro Bowman welcomes former middle school teammate Kevin Durant to the Bay Area

NaVorro Bowman and Kevin Durant have known each since they were 8, and even played middle school basketball together. Bowman welcomed Durant to the Bay Area on Monday. The Golden State Warriors made a huge splash on Monday, signing free agent forward Kevin Durant. It is not surprising that folks around the Bay Area welcomed Durant to the Bay Area. One of those players was San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

Golden Nuggets: 49ers React To KD’s Decision

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet The 4th of July in the Bay Area started off with a bang when news that Kevin Durant decided he would play with the Golden State Warriors. News flew through the sports world and some of the 49ers weighted in on Durant’s decision. Torrey Smith, NaVorro Bowman were excited about the news, while Ronald Blair and Keith Reaser did not care for it. A longtime friend of Kevin Durant, NaVorro Bowman, welcomed Kevin to the Bay Area through Twitter. Kevin and NaVorro have known...
