Mar 14, 2012 at 10:01 AM


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area (@MaioccoCSN) reports that, per a league source, guard Leonard Davis is visiting with the San Francisco 49ers.

Davis (6-6, 355 lbs), who is 33, has played for the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys. He signed with the Detroit Lions in November, but did not play in 2011.

Davis is a three time Pro Bowler (2007, 2008, 2009) and was drafted with the second overall selection in the 2001 NFL Draft out of Texas.

ESPN's Mike Sando had this to say on Twitter:

49ers would have 900 to 1,000 pounds of Davises on right side of line if Leonard joined Anthony and Vernon up front.

Why Leonard Floyd signed with the 49ers: 'They play grown-man football'

Leonard Floyd had multiple options as he entered free agency but chose the San Francisco 49ers as his next NFL home. It wasn't just the beautiful California weather and scenery that attracted him. Although, during a Wednesday morning conversation on Bay Area radio station KNBR, the defensive end admitted those are among the first things he praises when talking to his friends back on the East Coast. Floyd signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the 49ers, hoping to return to the Super Bowl with a talented roster fresh off an appearance in the NFL title game. While the money is significant, the defender wasn't entirely financially motivated. Floyd has always admired the 49ers from afar, appreciating the physicality the defense consistently displays on the football

Can Leonard Floyd overcome this troubling stat to shine with the 49ers?

Leonard Floyd is getting a fresh start with the San Francisco 49ers. A quick glance at his statistics shows that he matched a career-high 10.5 sacks last season, so maybe a fresh start isn't necessary due to his consistently impressive production. In fact, Floyd has 39.5 sacks over the past four seasons, suggesting that the 49ers may have finally found the perfect complement to former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Nick Bosa on the edge of the defensive line. However, a deeper dive into the analytics reveals an area of concern: Floyd's tackling. Last season, he recorded a missed tackle rate of 36.7 percent, a career-high mark that led to a career-low Pro Football Focus tackling grade of 29.2. Pro Football Focus writer Bradley Locker hopes to see improvement in

Vernon Davis explains why the 49ers were able to turn things around in 2011

It's no secret that the early 2000's weren't exactly a high point in the history of the San Francisco 49ers. From 2003-2010 the once dominant franchise won just 46 games and didn't have a single winning season. Then, in 2011, something changed. On the surface, the hiring of Jim Harbaugh seemed to make all the difference. The Niners went 13-3 in 2011 and ultimately made three NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl with him at the helm. Harbaugh left little doubt that he was an elite head coach, but the team was also full of talented players who were still hitting their stride upon his arrival. Vernon Davis was one of those players. The Pro Bowl tight end ranks seventh all-time in franchise history in receiving yards (5,640) and fourth in receiving touchdowns
