Navarro Bowman signs 5 year contract extension til 2018!

Bowman today said that in the end victories trumped dollar amounts.

"It's not really about money," he said. "At the end of the day, we all play this game and we get paid a good amount of money, but all in all people remember you for the wins, remember you for the team that you're a part of."

"In order for us to keep the guys we have together, we're going to have to give on each side and that's what was done. We worked together, and I wasn't mad about not getting paid more than Pat. He's my brother. We play together, play close together and we're making the same amount of money, just about. So I'm happy about it and won't lose any sleep over it."

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).


I'm simply amazed that this happened. Bowman clearly wants to be here, and isn't looking for the biggest possible payday.
I don't even want to think about Aldon Smith right now, but this signing certainly means we are saying goodbye to Goldson (who is clearly about the money), Rogers (who we simply can't afford), and probably Iupati. I think if we move now, we can sign A. Davis to a reasonable contract. I would hate to lose our offensive line.

The main issue is how we are going to extend Aldon. I don't want to wait until the last year of his deal. God knows what monster amount of money it's going to be.

Not to mention what LB in the league would want to give up playing next to Patrick Willis on a superbowl caliber defense just for a few bucks.

He and Willis will retire 49ers.
I thought he'd run home to Maryland to be the much needed Ray Lewis replacement for sure. Thanks Navarro! You did the unexpected, Thank you Takeo Spikes,Mike Singletary and Pat for the help in molding such a finely tuned Instrument of destruction.

I'm sure he'd get a better pay check in Baltimore, but nothing compares to S.F. as a city to live in.

Wow. We are the luckiest team in the league. These players we have are unbelievable.
Wow, just got the news. Couldn't think of a better way to start the day. Goldson next in line and I'm sure Kaep is in mind sooner rather than later. Pat and Bo, 52 and 53, now get it done.

Kap is no where in mind. Dude has played two games.

Next year for sure if he plays good.
2010 draft is looking pretty great. Now if we could only ignore 2008/2009...

I thank Baalke for drafting him. I thank Baalke, Harbaugh, and Jed for not giving Takeo(An aging ILB) a 3 yr deal, and playing NaVorro Bowman.

This got me, from the SacBee Article.

"Once we got to a level of guaranteed compensation, we knew we weren't going to get caught up with, 'Who's making more?' NaVorro's not about that," said Rosenhaus, who also has negotiated deals for inside linebackers Jon Beason and Lawrence Timmons. "We were very comfortable with this deal. He's one of the Top 5 highest paid guys at the position."

Rosenhaus said it was rare for a player to get a new contract midway through his third season. "I think only the most proactive teams get it done," he said. "I think this is perhaps the most talented team in the NFL. And if you want to keep all your good players, you have to get deals done now. You can't let guys get to free agency. You can't keep everybody."

We have 2 of the top 5 paid ILBs in Willis and now Bowman.

And can I gloat? I said it could and would be done. Maiocco said not a chance it would work and I love MM, but I said it.
25 mil guaranteed is very good for Bowman. Willis got 29mil guaranteed. That's the most important portion of the contract all agents negotiate for their clients. The rest of the per year amount is just secondary.
