As soon as word spread that former Pro Bowl linebacker Navorro Bowman was being released by the 49ers, Oakland fans began to chant in unison for the Raiders to bring him in. The Raiders’ linebacking corps is young and has yet to reach their potential, meaning Bowman would provide veteran leadership and a solid presence in the middle.
The Vic Tafur tweeted this out:
Ball is in Bowman’s court. Raiders interested https://t.co/034enKfoT3— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) October 13, 2017
Albert Breer, earlier in the day, Tweeted this:
An offensive coach who faced him this year texted that NaVorro Bowman doesn't run well anymore, but still a good tackler, can fill a role.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) October 13, 2017
Who cares? Come on down, Mr. Bowman. Anyone who can tackle is a good fit for this Raiders team.
Expect Bowman to make his decision in the coming days. If anything breaks on the Raiders front, your friendly neighborhood Raiders blog will be the first to break the news to you, the home viewer.
