Workout videos of retired Anthony Davis emerge

Jul 20, 2016 at 2:01 PM--


Rightfully so, fans have grown frustraded with retired San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis and news of his possible return to the football field. He has been promising to return to the NFL (but not necessarily the 49ers) for a long time now, but has shown great frustration with the 49ers organization – specifically general manager Trent Baalke.

Raritan Physical Therapy posted two videos yesterday of a slimmer and more fit Davis doing drills. (h/t to CSN Bay Area for spotting these)

Davis then went on to post a video of himself running on a treadmill on his own protected Instagram account (screenshot below).



Davis, who is 26, retired following the 2014 season after dealing with a number of injuries, including a concussion. He stated that he wanted to get healthy before returning to the NFL. His injuries limited him to only seven games in 2014. He was the 11th overall selection by the 49ers in 2010 NFL Draft out of Rutgers and had played his entire career with San Francisco, started every game prior to 2014.

On April 1, Davis tweeted that he would be filing for reinstatement later this year, which has not yet happened. In that tweet, he also took a jab at the 49ers' general manager saying, "Dealing with Trent is giving me a headache." That tweet has since been deleted.

"The 49ers should Draft an Offensive Tackle in the top 10," said a frustrated Davis via Twitter on April 27. That tweet was later deleted as well. The 49ers took offensive guard Joshua Garnett in the first round and then selected two tackles, John Theus and Fahn Cooper, in the fifth round.

"I do not want to work with a front office or anyone else who seemingly doesn't want to win as bad as I do," Davis continued via Twitter. "Would you happily rent your body out to people that bulls**t you and constantly try to manipulate you? I hope you'd stand up for yourself."

Davis continued to state that he intends to return to the NFL, but also gave the impression that he does not have a desire to play for the 49ers. Last season, his absence left the 49ers with free agent acquisition Erik Pears starting at right tackle, contributing to making the offensive line one of the worst in the NFL. Pears continues to start at the position during offseason practices.

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
