Colts should show interest in LB Navorro Bowman

On Friday afternoon, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the San Francisco 49ers were fielding offers for veteran linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

If there is anything, the 49ers gave Bowman the chance to hear offers from the rest of the league rather than sticking to whichever team was willing to offer the Niners compensation.

And while Bowman was surely a major presence within San Francisco's defense heading into this season, it didn't take much to see he had lost a step.

Bowman thrice made the Pro Bowl in a 49ers' uniform, and was an All-Pro four times.

A knee injury kept Bowman out for the entire 2014 season and an Achilles injury ended his season in 2016 after just four games.

Trying to piece a competitive defense together while undergoing a rebuild, the Colts signed a handful of players on one-year deals.

First-round rookie linebacker Reuben Foster is set to return to limited action against Washington Sunday after being sidelined with a high ankle sprain since the team's Week 1 matchup against the Panthers. The 49ers kept both linebackers around and they are glad they did.

The 49ers appeared to be phasing Bowman out of their defense this season. The 49ers have granted that request.

The issue becomes whether Bowman wants to come to Chicago as opposed to going to play with a Super Bowl contender, and the question of his price tag could also play a role.

Now, he's been released from that contract and is free to sign with any team. Still, the 29-year-old linebacker should have something left in the tank and is a brilliant leader.

Trevathan is now back but John Timu is injured, and the Bears certainly have an open opportunity for someone like Bowman to be able to step in and contribute.
