Joe Staley shares the story of punching NaVorro Bowman in the face

May 31, 2017 at 10:16 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers held their "2017 State of the Franchise" event on Wednesday night in front of an audience of season ticket holders. Those in attendance had the pleasure of hearing from numerous representatives from management, front office, and the coaching staff. Also taking part were a number of 49ers players. The event ended with a conversation with two of the team's most seasoned veterans in offensive tackle Joe Staley and linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

Staley shared a humorous story from earlier in the day of him punching Bowman in the face. As a result of being named the team's offseason program best athlete this year, the strength and conditioning staff created a large cardboard cutout of Staley and placed it in the locker room. Bowman punched the cardboard cutout. "I'm sick of seeing his fat face," Bowman said according to Staley. "I hate Joe."

Staley responded by saying, "You punched the cardboard cutout? I'm going to punch you in the face for real."

The offensive lineman then pretended to go in and punch Bowman in the face without the intent of actually hitting him and the 49ers linebacker leaned in and connected with Staley's fist.

"Joe said, 'Relax Bo, relax. Please don't hit me,'" Bowman said.

"I got real scared," Staley added.

You can watch Staley tell the entire story below.

Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider recently admitted that San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle was among the reasons why the division rivals gave up a haul to acquire safety Jamal Adams. "But you have to have so much speed on the back, especially when we're playing against Kyler Murray and George Kittle and Robert Woods and all these guys that seem like they are just running all over the place," Schneider told Peter King of NBC Sports. "You've got to have as much speed on the field. So adding a guy like Jamal who has that versatility to play down in the box and play in the hole and play man coverage is really important to us." The
