SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Longtime NFL linebacker NaVorro Bowman has retired.

Bowman announced his retirement Tuesday at the headquarters of the San Francisco 49ers. He spent eight-plus seasons in San Francisco after being drafted in the third round in 2010 and was a key part of a defense that went to three straight NFC title games and one Super Bowl.

Bowman teamed with Patrick Willis to form one of the best linebacker duos in the NFL. He was named an All-Pro four times and had the interception return for a touchdown that sealed the final game ever at Candlestick Park in 2013.

Bowman was released by San Francisco in October 2017 and played 10 games that season with the Oakland Raiders. Bowman didn't play last year.
