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.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday. Lynch revealed that the team plans to exercise the fifth-year option on offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, keeping him signed through the 2022 season. The move will guarantee the offensive lineman $10.88 million in 2022. San Francisco drafted McGlinchey out of Notre Dame with the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. He earned a 79.7 overall grade and a 91.3 run-blocking grade from Pro Football Focus in 2020, both of which were career-highs. However, the offensive lineman's 58.3 pass-blocking grade was a career-low. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year,"

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he hopes to see stadiums across the league filled with fans once again. Last season, there were no or limited fans in venues due to the pandemic. For players, the strangeness of playing in empty stadiums could be a thing of the past. Defensive end Nick Bosa only got to play one game at Levi's Stadium last season before suffering a season-ending knee injury during Week 2. He caught up with 49ers team reporter Keiana Martin and shared that he hopes to see fans again in 2021. "It would mean a lot, really," Bosa said during a virtual one-on-one. "I only got one game at home without the fans, and it was really weird. I love to look back at the film and TV

Cornerback Richard Sherman remains available. The free agent doesn't know what his NFL future holds, has had teams reach out to him, and hasn't even ruled out a possible return to the San Francisco 49ers. "Obviously, a return to San Francisco isn't out of the cards," Sherman told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith. "I've had conversations with Seattle. I've had conversations with the Saints, the Raiders, and we've just got to wait to see how things play out." Things are on pause until the draft is complete. Sherman doesn't expect to see the interest increase until after that, as NFL teams look to add younger defenders on rookie contracts. The 49ers could select a cornerback on Day 2 of
