Former 49ers’ LB NaVorro Bowman is signing a one-year, $3 million deal with the Raiders, per sources.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) October 16, 2017
Bowman will be a huge addition to the middle of the defense. Currently, the Raiders defense is ranked 26th in total yards given up with 2,099. Where he will really help is in the running game where the Raiders are ranked 21st in rushing yards allowed per game with 117.2. Bowman will bring some physicality to a defense to a team that needs a spark.
