(TSX / STATS) -- Linebacker NaVorro Bowman is signing a one-year, $3 million deal with the Oakland Raiders, multiple outlets reported on Monday.

The San Francisco 49ers released Bowman on Friday after seven seasons with team. The 49ers agreed to the 29-year-old Bowman's request to be released after trade scenarios were investigated, according to general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan.

Bowman could provide a boost to a Oakland defense that was shredded by Melvin Gordon in Sunday's 17-16 setback to the Los Angeles Chargers. The 24-year-old Gordon rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown and added nine receptions for 67 yards and a score.
