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' Richard Sherman reacts to fan comment that Jets can't have K'Waun Williams or Jason Verrett

K'Waun Williams is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to become free agents. And now, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have their former defensive coordinator to contend with in free agency. On Thursday, the New York Jets named Robert Saleh as their new head coach, and there is some concern from the 49ers fanbase that many of the free agents on the defensive side of the football might follow their former coach. One fan stated on Twitter that Saleh could have a number of the 49ers defenders, including cornerback Richard Sherman. Two players who the fan hopes are untouchable are cornerbacks Jason Verrett and K'Waun Williams. Sherman (virtually and maybe in real life) laughed at the suggestion that Williams can't be allowed

Jerick McKinnon says 'f--k no' to potential 49ers return

Jerick McKinnon is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to hit free agency this offseason. The running back reworked his contract last year to ensure his return for the 2020 season. Fans didn't expect him to be back in 2021, especially given the 49ers' limited salary-cap space. Now, McKinnon has made it clear that he doesn't expect to suit up in red and gold again either. On Wednesday night, McKinnon spoke with teammate Deebo Samuel on Instagram Live and was asked if he'd be back in 2021. "Am I staying with the Niners? N----, f--k no," McKinnon responded. "What the hell you talking about? We gone! We

Multiple coaching candidates plan to run Kyle Shanahan's scheme; Dolphins interested in 49ers' Mike McDaniel

By David Bonilla
Jan 14, 2021

The San Francisco 49ers may fall victim to the effect of running what many consider to be a successful and innovative scheme — the poaching of talent. Despite the six-win season, the team is just a year removed from a Super Bowl appearance, and head coach Kyle Shanahan remains one of the most highly-respected offensive minds in the league. NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah points out that one of the subplots within the coach-interviewing flurry across the league is that multiple top candidates plan on running the scheme that Shanahan runs in San Francisco (h/t to Patrick Tulini). That could mean a run on assistants familiar with the system, and the 49ers have an abundance of
