The Oakland Raiders have signed free agent LB NaVorro Bowman, the club announced Monday.
The San Francisco 49ers released Bowman on Friday after seven seasons with the team.
General manager John Lynch said the team looked into possible trade partners and came close to completing one.
The deal is contingent on Bowman passing his physical. He also added 2.5 sacks and two passes defensed, earning First-Team All-Pro honors and a selection to the Pro Bowl.
The 29-year-old broke into the highest level back in 2010-11 while going on to spend his first seven National Football League seasons in the Bay Area with the 49ers. Bowman only played in four games last season, suffering a torn Achilles on October 3, but had started San Francisco's first five games this year, credited with 37 total tackles.
After missing the entire 2014 season due to injury, Bowman returned to action in 2015 and led the National Football League with 154 total tackles, according to gamebook statistics.
A native of Forestville, Md., Bowman played in 33 games with 21 starts and recorded 215 tackles, eight sacks, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries during his three-year career at Penn State.
