NaVorro Bowman, Joe Staley named to Pro Bowl

Dec 22, 2015 at 5:12 PM


It was announced today that San Francisco 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman and LT Joe Staley made the Pro Bowl.



Bowman's selection is impressive because of the devastating injury that he sustained just 23 months ago when he suffered a torn ACL and MCL. Even though he insists he is not yet at 100-percent, he has done enough to return to the Pro Bowl.

Bowman has 136 tackles and two sacks this season. He is tied with Indianapolis Colts LB D'Qwell Jackson for leading tackler in the NFL. During Sunday's 24-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, Bowman had an impressive 12 tackles, earning his highest career grade from Pro Football Focus.

Staley has been part of one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL, but got noticed enough to get the selection. This will be Staley's fifth straight selection to the Pro Bowl.

LG Alex Boone is an alternate selection. He suffered a sprained MCL two weeks ago against the Cleveland Browns and is unlikely to play again this season.

San Francisco 49ers assistant head coach Brandon Staley has long admired Kyle Shanahan and his team from afar. When given the opportunity to join Shanahan's coaching staff this offseason, he eagerly accepted. Staley spent a season in the NFC West as the defensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams, so he knows firsthand how challenging it is to play against a Shanahan-led offense. Now, instead of strategizing against the 49ers' playmakers, he will help evolve the team and contribute to their quest for that elusive Super Bowl title. One player Staley is relieved to have on his side is running back Christian McCaffrey, whom the 49ers traded for in 2022. "Well, Christian, he's one of the toughest covers in the league," Staley told reporters on
