NaVorro Bowman Unlikely To Re-Sign With The Raiders?
Since signing a one-year deal in Oakland, NaVorro Bowman has become one of the leaders of a suddenly resurgent Raider defense. He’s also leading the team in tackles during a six-game stretch that has remarkably moved the Raiders back into a tie for the division lead.
Nevertheless, Bowman is no guarantee to be back next year, says The Athletic’s Vic Tafur, who speculated that it’s actually unlikely the former All Pro will be back.
Maybe it’s because there won’t be enough money to go around, but it at least sounds like Bowman would like to stay with the Raiders.
“I don’t see why they wouldn’t sign me back. I’d love to stay. I like the area. I like the team and the organization. Hopefully we can make it happen,” Bowman told NBC Sports Bay Area last week.
The Raiders will obviously prioritize a long-term deal with Khalil Mack and it’s possible Bowman will command more money than what general manager Reggie McKenzie will be willing to offer.
Considering McKenzie’s obvious struggle to find stability at linebacker, it would certainly be a disappointment to see a good one get away – especially if Bowman really does want to stay.
