Seahawks awarded RB Mike Davis off waivers

May 8, 2017 at 1:34 PM--

On Thursday, the San Francisco 49ers waived running back Mike Davis, a fourth-round selection out of South Carolina in the 2015 NFL Draft. Davis will remain within the NFC West after being awarded to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

An earlier report by Rapoport revealed that Davis was the subject of trade talks during last month's draft. With the selection of Joe Williams out of Utah in the fourth round, Davis became expendable. On Monday, the 49ers released running back DuJuan Harris, who was re-signed to a one-year contract in March.

The 49ers added free agent running back Tim Hightower on April 1st. He is joined by the other running backs currently on the 49ers' roster – Carlos Hyde, Raheem Mostert, and rookie Matt Breida.

In two seasons with the 49ers, Davis had carried the football 54 times for 108 yards and a touchdown. That is an average of just two yards per attempt. He also had 10 receptions for 63 yards. Davis missed nearly half of his rookie 2015 season with a fractured hand but returned for the team's final game and finished that season with 58 yards on 35 carries. He added just 50 yards on 19 carries in 2016.

On Monday, the 49ers signed three undrafted free agents. They are wide receiver B.J. Johnson of Georgia Southern, offensive lineman Richard Levy of UConn, and safety Chanceller James of Boise State.

In June, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk created a stink over some offseason comments by Kyle Shanahan. The San Francisco 49ers head coach commented during the team's State of the Franchise event about his desire to get back to that fourth quarter in the Super Bowl and finish the job. Florio felt the comments dismissed the work it takes to get to that point and set unrealistic expectations. Except, Shanahan did note that he was well aware that the journey would not be easy, and that this season will be harder than ever. "That's why all of our guys have got to take this challenge, and we've got to take advantage of this offseason," Shanahan said in June.

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to sign tight end George Kittle to a long-term extension. The two sides don't sound as though they are very close in the negotiation process, however. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the 49ers and Kittle's camp are not "particularly close on anything." Mike Silver of NFL Network seems to be hearing the same thing and on Friday provided an update on Kittle's contract situation. "There remains a pretty significant disconnect philosophically between the 49ers and George Kittle's camp. The 49ers believe they want to reset the tight end market and give him a great tight end deal.

Nick Bosa listed among Adam Rank's 'most egregiously off-base' Madden NFL 21 ratings

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle expressed some dissatisfaction with some of his ratings in the latest installment of the popular multi-platform football video game, Madden NFL 21. His biggest issue wasn't narrowly being denied membership to the highly-coveted "99 Club" within the game, though. Kittle's biggest gripe seemed to be his breaking-tackles rating of 81, which tied for second on the team. "If Deebo (Samuel) has a higher breaking-tackles rating than me, that's just not okay," the tight end said. "It's Deebo, isn't it?" Yes. The second-year wideout owns a rating of 83 in that category. "Sure, whatever," Kittle added. "I think I led the
