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.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters for the first time since October. Of course, the first question presented to him surrounded his health. Garoppolo had been sidelined with a high-ankle sprain since Week 8. "The ankle's doing good," Garoppolo said. "We're in a good spot right now. It's progressed just the way I want it to, really. It's not at 100 percent, but it's really just about getting reps at this point, getting endurance back to it, the durability and everything. I think once we do that, it'll be in a good spot, so I'm pretty happy where I'm at." Garoppolo knows he needs to find a way to stay on the football field for his teammates.
