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)

Frelund: Return of these two star players set 49ers up for playoff return

Earlier this week, on a segment of Game Theory, Cynthia Frelund gave her argument as for why the San Francisco 49ers will make the playoffs in 2021 after missing out in 2020. Frelund attributed their recent Super Bowl appearance as a factor in her decision as well as the multitude of injuries that affected the team last season. "They were in the Super Bowl just like five minutes ago and they had a whole bunch of injuries, but they get all those players back." Looking at the offensive side of the ball, Frelund highlighted star tight end George Kittle, who, according to Next Gen Stats, has averaged 8.0 yards after the catch per reception since 2018, which is the highest in the NFL given a minimum of 25 receptions. In addition to Kittle,

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday.
