Anthony Davis says he misses football and bashes 49ers

Dec 27, 2016 at 7:45 AM--


Are you tired of hearing about former San Francisco 49ers tackle Anthony Davis yet? If your answer was no, here is a little tidbit from yesterday. Apparently, according to a Tweet he sent out yesterday, Davis misses playing football, but not enough to play for the 49ers because he effectively bashes management and ownership.

The Tweet by Davis was later deleted, but luckily, Jon Becker of the Oakland Tribune and Contra Costa Times copied the text and shared it.

"I miss football," Davis said via Twitter. "I don't want to play for Jed, Trent or Pat though. They're all full of shit."


Jed would be Jed York, the team CEO. Trent is Trent Baalke, the team's general manager. Pat is Pat Flaherty, the team's offensive line coach.

These days, there probably aren't a lot of fans that would argue with Davis on the Jed and Trent part. The Niner Faithful are growing increasingly frustrated with the two and the direction that they have steered the organization since firing successful head coach Jim Harbaugh.

After retiring for health reasons last year, which included concussions, and following a year of what can be described as "social media attacks" against the 49ers and Baalke, Davis filed for reinstatement into the NFL. He was approved to return just as the 49ers opened training camp.

Despite his hard work and continued praises from the 49ers, Davis was never able to wrestle away the starting job from the bigger Trent Brown. Following the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams, Davis suffered another concussion. This time, it was during a practice as the team was preparing to play their Week 2 opponent, the Carolina Panthers. On September 26, Davis retired again from the NFL.

Of course, a return would mean that Davis would have to play for the 49ers.

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



49ers rookie RB Tyrion Davis-Price reveals ideal playing weight, seeks to deliver punches to the mouth

Rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price weighed in at 211 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine, running the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds. He was about 225 pounds during his time at LSU. That's about where the San Francisco 49ers want Davis-Price to be in his first NFL season. "I'll be between 220, 222 this season," Davis-Price told reporters on Friday. "... That's what I'm best playing at, around that weight, 220, 222." According to the team's official weight listings, that's bigger than any of his new running back teammates. Trey Sermon comes close at about 215 pounds. That ideal weight hints at how the 49ers envision using the third-round draft pick—as a power runner more than a finesse weapon. Remember, Elijah Mitchell dealt with several injuries while



What the 49ers drafting of Ty Davis-Price might signal

For the second time in as many years, the San Francisco 49ers selected a running back in the third round of the NFL Draft. Last season it was Trey Sermon, out of Ohio State University, via the University of Oklahoma. This time it was Ty Davis-Price out of LSU. The pick left many shaking their head, especially fans who couldn't understand why the team needed to draft a running back so high when it did so a year ago. After the draft, head coach Kyle Shanahan answered that question. "We're a running team," said Shanahan. "We like to run the ball. Anytime you have a chance to get a good back, if that is what's best for your team compared to all the other positions, I don't think you can ever go wrong with a back." Maybe Davis-Price is a depth piece. "I don't think



Fred Warner believes Deebo Samuel 'loves the team' but Pelissero says 49ers, WR remain in 'standoff'

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I
