But when that fell through, the team granted Bowman's request and released him to give him the opportunity to pick his new team.

"During that time, NaVorro was a key component of one of the best teams in the league and his passion for the game allowed him to quickly become a favourite of our faithful fans".

"Although NaVorro may be moving on, he will always be looked at as one of the great players to wear the red and gold".

Toro Rosso keep F1 guessing ahead of US Grand Prix
The New Zealand driver Brendan Hartley will race for Toro Rosso at next week's US Formula One Grand Prix in Texas. In the June of this year he won the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours with Earl Bamber and Bernhard.

The 49ers sought a trade partner for the three-time Pro Bowl inside linebacker prior to cutting him on Friday. At least four other teams could reportedly be in the mix. Over the course of his final five regular-season appearances as a member of the once heralded NFC West franchise, he tallied 38 total tackles alongside one pass defense. The Penn State product was earning a $6.75 million base salary before being released by San Francisco.

Rapoport went on to report that Bowman is expected to visit with Oakland in "the coming days" in a tweet Sunday morning, later highlighting that the 29-year-old LB is already just a short drive away from the facility.

However, it is also worth noting that Bowman has encountered quite a bit of injury trouble over the years while such a notion could slightly hinder his financial stock on the free agent market.
