NaVorro Bowman is one of the greatest players in 49ers history and believes he should be among the NFL greats in Canton.
Legacy is a tricky thing to decipher in the NFL. What is the value of a great career if it doesn’t end up in Canton? All players enter the league wanting to be Hall of Famers, but only a select few have busts to mark their football immortality.
Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman believes he should be one of those select few.
“We have to remind people they had a badass back in the day,” Bowman flexed to FanSided’s Mark Carman. “It’s 2020, [49ers] are about to win the Super Bowl so why not start the 2020 Hall of Fame campaign for NaVarro Bowman.”
It could be interpreted that Bowman is joking, but no NFL player is going to make his playing career a joke. Bowman isn’t wrong when he says football fans had a badass back in the day, as the 49ers defense of the early 2010s was a brooding force to be reckoned with.
The rise of Seattle’s Legion of Boom was clouded what the Niners had, but Bowman anchored a defensive secondary that included Patrick Willis — another player who isn’t far off from having a Hall of Fame campaign started in the near future.
“It’d mean the world,” Bowman said.
Bowman for the Hall of Fame. The campaign has officially started in Miami.
