NaVorro Bowman to visit Raiders, then Cowboys this week

Imagine if he joined the Cowboys in time for this weekend’s game?

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent linebacker NaVorro Bowman already has some notable visits lined up as he looks for a new team. Ian Rapoport reported on Sunday that Bowman and the Oakland Raiders had mutual interest. Later on Sunday, Adam Schefter reported that Bowman will visit with the Raiders on Monday, and then the Dallas Cowboys after that.

The San Francisco 49ers released Bowman on Friday, and odds seem good he will sign somewhere in time for the start of Week 7 practices. The Raiders desperately need a middle linebacker to shore up their atrocious defense. Bowman lives in the Bay Area, so that certainly makes it easier as well.

The Cowboys need help all around their defense, and this would mark a reunion with his former Penn State teammate Sean Lee. It would get particularly interesting because the 49ers are playing Dallas this weekend! Imagine NaVorro Bowman’s first game in an opposing uniform actually taking place at Levi’s Stadium????
