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)

49ers DL Arik Armstead sidelined with knee sprain; DT Javon Kinlaw, OL Mike McGlinchey to return to team drills soon

The 49ers have their first notable injury of this year's training camp, but it doesn't sound like it's something of a serious nature. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed Friday morning that defensive lineman Arik Armstead sprained his MCL at practice this week and that it could require some time to recover. Armstead was missing at practice on Thursday and could be out for a while. "It's probably going to be a few weeks. Nothing we're concerned about, but we're taking some time away," Shanahan said. Shanahan said Armstead took a bruise during practice that wasn't an issue at first but flared up after practice. After going through examinations, the 49ers decided to put Armstead on the sidelines. "It didn't bother him that bad but it



Vernon Davis on 49ers TE George Kittle: "His skill set is unmatched"

Vernon Davis remains the all-time leading receiver among San Francisco 49ers tight ends. His 5,640 receiving yards over his 10 NFL seasons with the team ranks sixth in 49ers history. Hot on his tail is current tight end George Kittle, who has amassed 4,489 receiving yards in five years. Kittle is likely just a couple of seasons away from surpassing Davis in the 49ers record books. Davis was at training camp in Santa Clara this past week and was asked about Kittle. Below is what one great 49ers tight end had to say about the other. "George Kittle is unbelievable," Davis told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. "He's a wonderful talent. Every skill position, especially the tight end, they have different attributes. George Kittle, he has his ability to be able to
