In 49ers rumors tonight, the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers is staying optimistic that two of the biggest pieces from last year's squad will be back with the team next season.
Speaking in a team release from the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis, Jim Harbaugh displayed a positive outlook about the chances of linebacker NaVorro Bowman's return from a major knee injury, along with the possibility of the 49ers re-signing veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
In regard to NaVorro Bowman, Jim Harbaugh doesn't harbor any delusions that the 3-time First-Team NFL All-Pro will be back at the start of the 2014 NFL season, stating that "halfway through the season (or) something like that would be more realistic."
That prognosis would still be great news for the San Francisco 49ers, especially since Bowman led the 49ers in tackles for the third straight year in 2013.
Coach Jim Harbaugh also expressed optimism over the San Francisco 49ers chances at re-signing team MVP (voted by the t49ers' coaching staff) Anquan Boldin--
"The direction it's going is very positive because we're unanimous. It's not just me who wants Anquan Boldin back. It could be days, weeks, but there's a process, and it's going in a positive direction."
