Report: Raiders to meet with agent for LB NaVorro Bowman about potential return

New, comments
NFL: Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

What seemed like it should have been the Raiders top re-sign priority has yet to happen. Middle linebacker NaVorro Bowman has not yet been brought back into the fold in Oakland. But, lucky for them, he hasn’t signed elsewhere either, giving them another shot at him.

They were said to have put an offer on the table, but Bowman wanted to test his market. Based on the fact that he is still unsigned would suggest he was unable to find a deal elsewhere he liked better. Now his agent and the Raiders will go back to the table again, according to Vic Tafur of the Athletic.

Getting Bowman back would be a tremendous boost for a team that is thin at the linebacker position. The veteran former All Pro led the team in tackles (89) despite signing on with the team prior to week six and starting the final ten games.
