Does Anthony Davis plan to return to 49ers? “No comment” says reps

Jul 21, 2016 at 9:55 AM--


On Wednesday, videos emerged of retired San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis working hard and doing drills in what looked like a comeback attempt. However, the real question is if Davis has any desire to return to the 49ers, who currently own his rights. He has been very vocal in showing his frustration with the 49ers organization and may be looking to be traded. Of course, all of that is pure speculation at this point.

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area asked Davis' representatives if he indeed plans to file for reinstatement – and more specifically – if he plans to report to 49ers training camp. "No comment at this time," they responded. The 4e9rs will report to Santa Clara on July 30 with their first practice taking place the next day.


So what does this mean for the 49ers, who attempted to address numerous issues along the offensive line this offseason. Their biggest question mark remaining along the line is at right tackle, with Erik Pears getting most of the offseason reps there. The team brought in guard Zane Beadles to replace the departed Alex Boone along the left side

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 Trent Baalke 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, 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.

The following are the two videos that were posted by Raritan Physical Therapy. (again, h/t to CSN Bay Area for spotting these)

What the return of Trey Sermon means to the 49ers' backfield

By Chris Beno
Jan 12

The San Francisco 49ers hit the road this Sunday to face the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. What is surprising, and quite frankly a pleasant change, the 49ers are the healthiest they've been in recent memory. Rookie running back Trey Sermon looks to be back this week since landing on IR in early December for an ankle injury. So, what kind of impact will Sermon have to the 49er's backfield? Honestly, probably none. He would be an added depth piece sure but will more than likely find himself on special team's units which is still something. The 49ers back field has been a bit of mystery this season. Rookie running back Elijah Mitchell has been the work horse for the 49ers, rushing for 963 yards on 207 carries and five

Players 'pumped' for 49ers-Cowboys, but know nothing of the rivalry, says Kyle Shanahan

It's hard to believe it's been 27 years since the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys met in the playoffs. The rivalry between the two teams used to be among the NFL's best. San Francisco and Dallas will finally meet again in the postseason on Sunday when the Cowboys host the 49ers in the Wild-Card round. For players, though, it's just another opponent. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday and was asked if his players understand what this rivalry means to fans. "Not at all," Shanahan responded before laughing. "I wish I could say, 'yes,' but some of these players were born in the 2000s. So, you'd like to think so, but every day, in the quarterback room, when I ask certain questions like in Wedding Crashers and stuff, and they don't even know



'The production speaks for itself': Marc Ross says 49ers must exercise Nick Bosa's fifth-year option

By David Bonilla

It's time for NFL teams to start thinking about exercising the fifth-year options of their first-round picks in the 2019 NFL draft. That includes some pretty big names, like Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray. The window to exercise those options opened on Monday, with the deadline set for May 2. NFL Media analyst Marc Ross went through each first-round pick from 2019, voting "Yes" or "No" to indicate whether he feels their respective teams should exercise the fifth-year option. For the San Francisco 49ers, that means looking at the possibilities for defensive end Nick Bosa. This one seems like a no-brainer. Bosa is the team's best pass rusher and its best player on the defensive side of the ball. He is a foundational piece on defense, and the unit's
