Bowman, though, preferred to choose his destination, per the report.
Lots of teams (are) trying to sign Bowman, a four-time first-team All-Pro selection who has missed 23 games over the last two seasons due to injuries, according to the report, and he will need a few days to make his decision.
ESPN cited the Ravens, Browns and Panthers as teams with which the 49ers discussed a Bowman trade. The Raiders reportedly are expected to have interest, as well.
The NFLPA has 14 days to file its petition for an en banc appeal hearing and Elliott would be allowed to play while the two sides await a court date. The union immediately appealed Goodell’s decision and Elliott was able to play the first five games of the season while awaiting the ruling from the Fifth Circuit.
The Cowboys (2-3) are on their bye this week and don’t play until Oct. 22 against the 49ers. Elliott, who has 393 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 105 carries, and his legal team are hoping he will be on the field at Levi’s Stadium.
We are currently exploring all of our legal options and will make a decision as to what is the best course of action in the next few days,” Elliott’s attorney Frank Salzano said, via ESPN.
If the six-game ban remains in place, Elliott would miss games against the 49ers, Redskins, Chiefs, Falcons, Eagles and Chargers. He would be eligible to return against the Redskins on Thursday, Nov. 30.
