BREAKING NEWS: 49ers LB Has Shocked NFL Publicity With His Speech, Is He Too Self-Confident Or This is The Reality?

NaVorro Bowman is healthy entering the 2017 season, yet he says the major injuries he has suffered as of late are keeping him from getting the respect he deserves.

A knee injury kept the San Francisco 49ers’ star linebacker out for the entire 2014 season and an Achilles injury finished his season in 2016 after only four games. In any case, when he has been healthy, he is one of the NFL’s best linebackers.

Bowman, 29, considers himself the best.

“A healthy Bowman is still the best linebacker in the NFL,” he told the San Francisco Chronicle. “What else has stopped me? A knee and an Achilles. What else? What else can you say about me?”

He feels those injuries have shielded him from being specified among the NFL’s elite linebackers in 2017.
