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.”
