San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman restructured his contract, converting $3.3 million of his 2014 base salary into a signing bonus, according to a league source.

Bowman's base salary, which was guaranteed April 1, decreases from $4 million to $730,000. The team created $2.616 million in cap space with the move.

The team is likely freeing up room for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is in the final year of his contract.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
