49ers, NaVorro Bowman agree to extension

The San Francisco 49ers and NaVorro Bowman agreed to a four-year contract extension, worth $20 million guaranteed (and could go as high as $44 million). Bowman has been with the team since 2010 when he was drafted with the 91st overall pick.

Bowman was all smiles afterward.

“Over the last six years, NaVorro has become a cornerstone of our organization and securing his future in the Bay Area was a priority for us,” general manager Trent Baalke said in a press release. “The perseverance he displayed while overcoming adversity and returning to his All-Pro form provides a great example of what can be accomplished through hard work and self-belief. This contract extension reaffirms our core philosophy of rewarding our own players and we are thrilled to know NaVorro will play his entire career with the 49ers.”

Bowman led the NFL in tackles in 2015 after missing the entire 2014 season recovering with a surgically repaired knee.
