    49ers’ NaVorro Bowman on competition: ‘I won’t be on the sideline’

    In March, the 49ers signed inside linebacker Malcolm Smith to a five-year contract with $11.5 million guaranteed. In April, they used a first-round pick on Alabama inside linebacker Reuben Foster. [...] in May, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked Tuesday about how playing time will be divided at a position group that also includes NaVorro Bowman, a four-time, first-team All-Pro. Given Bowman’s pedigree, it won’t be a surprise if he’s starting in Week 1 against the Panthers at Levi’s Stadium. [...] it’s also clear that he’ll need to prove to the 49ers’ new regime that he remains a force after sustaining a torn left Achilles in October. Bowman, who turns 29 on Sunday, sustained a multi-ligament tear in his left knee in January 2014 and his injuries have kept him off the field for 28 of 48 games the past three seasons. After the 49ers drafted Foster, Shanahan called Bowman that night to explain the situation, but Bowman politely said a talk wasn’t necessary. There’s always someone trying to take your spot. Two weeks ago, former NFL executive Mike Lombardi reported the 49ers attempted to trade Bowman during the draft. [...] Shanahan said Bowman, who has been a full participant in offseason practices, doesn’t resemble a player coming off an injury and “looks like the guy I’ve seen on tape over the years.” [...] Shanahan acknowledged Bowman’s second significant injury to his left leg played a role in the 49ers’ offseason moves. [...] Bowman, who returned from his knee injury to lead the NFL in tackles in 2015, sounded unfazed by the trade rumors and competition.

    Roger Goodell addresses celebration rule changes, Colin Kaepernick

    The NFL announced rule changes that eased restrictions on celebration penalties so players can now use the ball as a prop, celebrate in groups and celebrate on the ground. Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, who is on the competition committee, disagreed with the changes to the rules, saying he’s “not for that at all” and that they are “not a very good example for young people.” In his news conference Tuesday in Chicago to announce the conclusion of the spring meetings, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell responded to Lewis’ comments. “I’ve heard it from Marvin before,” Goodell said. “We have had these discussions over the last couple of years. I think the players will prove him wrong on that.”
