No timetable for possible Anthony Davis return

Feb 16, 2016 at 9:43 PM--


Earlier today, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported that, according to a source close to Anthony Davis, there is no timetable for a return by the former San Francisco 49ers tackle.

Prior to the start of the 2015 season, Davis had retired due to health concerns. He had said that he was going to take a year off due to concussion issues and even guaranteed that he would return.

Davis has had no problem being honest with fans on social media so there is no reason to doubt that he intends to return. If he does, the 49ers would retain his rights.

The following is an excerpt regarding Davis from Maiocco's article, which focuses on addressing the offensive line durging the offseason.

Davis has yet to file for reinstatement off the NFL's reserve/retired list. There is no timetable for his return, according to a source close to Davis. And even when/if it does happen, it's difficult to believe the 49ers' offseason plan will be altered in the least. The 49ers cannot assume Davis will re-emerge as the same player they had in his prime.

Maiocco also brings up that it is unknown how Davis would fit into new head coach Chip Kelly's zone scheme.

Former San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis, one of the best to play the position, recently spoke with Fox News and shared his thoughts on what the Niners' offseason focus should be. San Francisco was in the Super Bowl just over a year ago. It followed up the impressive run with a six-win campaign in 2020. The 49ers hope to rebound in 2021, and that will start with the upcoming draft. San Francisco owns the No. 12 overall pick. While some feel that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch might try to target a rookie quarterback, Willis believes his former team can return to glory by focusing on defense this offseason. That starts with adding a pass rusher to line up opposite the team's young star, defensive end Nick

49ers, Kyle Juszczyk had 'pleasant' talks about a potential return, await salary-cap clarification

Kyle Juszczyk's course remains set for free agency. The San Francisco 49ers hope to retain their highly-valued fullback. That might be difficult given the upcoming salary-cap constraints due to the pandemic's impact on the 2020 season. The 49ers have several impending free agents they would like to bring back. Juszczyk has been such a fixture within head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense over the past four years that it's difficult to imagine it without him. Juszczyk is already the highest-paid fullback by a significant margin, which isn't likely to change with his next contract. Shanahan may look to rework his offense to be less dependent on a dominant fullback like Juszczyk. However, ideally, Juszczyk would stay put. Josina Anderson, the host of the Undefined
