Forbes: Vernon Davis #9 most overpaid player in NFL

Forbes should stick to analyzing financial markets and global economics. They clearly haven't been watching any games recently.

Vernon is worth every penny we are paying him.
Half the Raiders should be on this list....

does Forbes know there's a backup QB in seattle making $26 mill over 3 years???

Forbes probably equate QBs to executives, and doesn't have the heart to criticize them too much.
lol and Mario Williams doesnt get a mention . . . . what a joke this Forbes list is.

I wouldn't use that website as a good source. They have been known to take information from other sites, namely mine. Plus they don't have Patrick Willis contract correct.
They obviously didn't watch the playoffs.
NFL sources say Forbes is the most overrated and overpriced publication.

Also, how can peyton manning NOT be on this list???? I am sure they know what his contract is....then again, maybe not.

Tell Forbes to get it straight

I disagree. Davis has underachieved as a sixth overall pick for the bulk of his six-year career. He has had his moments and he has been hot lately, as you note, but he has to sustain it awhile longer in my view.


What an idiot.

Underachieved? Career year in 09, put up decent numbers in 2010, then had a great 2011, led the team in post season with what 3 or 4 TDs, now 3 TDs through 2 games. What an idiot.

Ok Tommy boy, let's pretend your contract and Vernon's contract is up. Let's see who is offered a higher increase percentage-wise, and the we will see who truly is overpaid.
wow, what an idiot.

Vernon Davis is such a crucial player, he does so much for our team. I noticed against the Vikings we used him to help out Staley several times in pass protection since Staley was getting burned. Huge run blocker, great helping out in pass protection, one of the best recieving TEs, he sets up so many of our plays....

Does Forbes know the value of a pro bowl LT?

Bc that is what VD blocks like.
