Bowman made three-straight Pro Bowls with Fangio as his coach from 2011-2013 before a knee injury forced him to miss all of 2014, Fangio's previous year in San Francisco.

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.
Bowman has been one of the NFL's best inside linebacker for several years and has battled his way back from serious lower extremity injuries to remain effective at 29 years old.
"The 49er was actually still very good against the run in 2015; he led all linebackers in both tackles and stops by a significant margin, but his play fell away in coverage, where he allowed 90.3 percent of passes thrown his way to be caught and a passer rating of 110.9 when targeted".
The issue becomes whether Bowman wants to come to Chicago as opposed to going to play with a Super Bowl contender, and the question of his price tag could also play a role.
