The 49ers are shopping Navarro Bowman; or are they?
The San Francisco 49ers are shopping four-time first team All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl linebacker Navarro Bowman.

Bowman is at a crossroads in his career, hampered by the injury bug and stranded on a team devoid of talent hasn’t been good for him. But make no mistake Bowman has still produced at a high level and would anchor this defense.
But before getting too far ahead of this story, there are now conflicting reports. According to NBCS reporter Matt Maiocco the 49ers have come on the record and called the report “completely false.”
