Man what a good deal. Deserves more but this shows how much he cares about the team first and money second.

I think Bowman may have figured the team chemistry and Willis into his decision to stay and I'm all for it!! With Harbaugh and the coaching staff and the way this defense plays, where else would you want to play?

That's exactly what I was thinking. I know it sounds crazy to pass up a few million dollars, but I would rather have $45 million and look back at a career playing on a special defense with guys like Willis and Smith (all LB's are locked up through 2015, 2016 if Aldon gets the tag) than $50 million and a career on a mid-level defense. The extra $5 mil (or whatever) isn't worth it to me.

Brooks, Willis, Bowman, and Smith have a chance to do something really special here. Willis, Bowman, & Smith could probably make the hall on any team, but together they could be legends.
Ordering my Bowman jersey from my local hobby shop. Gotta represent.

Misleading. It's not done yet

lol because when the most credible breaking news guy in sports says "on the verge", it sometimes doesnt work out?

He wouldnt be reporting it unless it was as good as done.

Somebody always has to be a Debbie Downer.

I thought everyone knew that already?

Plus LB is a high risk position. Even more than other positions. A lot can happen in 550 plus days. I wonder if the injuries this weekend swayed him.

Same here. I wasn't sure if we would be able to keep him long. That was the only reason I didn't already buy his jersey.

I highly doubt the injuries had anything to do with his decision whatsoever. Seems to me Bowman is just a team player and didn't try to suck every dollar he could from the franchise. I'm glad the whack ass Cowboys didn't draft him (if I recall correctly, they had him rated as a 1st round talent).

That agent Drew Rose credits Paraag and Brian, but not Trent Baalke. I guess the contract negotiations don't involve the GM , which is interesting.
I love the structure if correct. He(Bowman) was set for a bump from his $575K base to $1.26M, but he only took up about an extra $1.6M for 2013 cap room. We almost ave $30M for 2014 cap room, before any deals for J.Smith and Whitner, plus we can save $6.6M for Rogers cut and $8.75M for Alex cut. So we are sitting pretty right now.
