Anthony Davis officially reinstated and reports to 49ers today

Anthony Davis has been officially reinstated to the NFL and will report to training camp for the San Francisco 49ers today, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. He officially filed his paperwork for reinstatement into the NFL on Monday, July 25 following his surprise retirement last offseason. Davis will be ready to practice with the team when they gather on the field Sunday at 10:25 AM.


Not long before news of his official reinstatement broke, Adam Schefter of ESPN had already reported that Davis would report to the team today.


The 49ers will need to make a roster move to make room for Davis. They are currently at the 90-player limit. Medical examinations are occurring today so it is conceivable that at least one player won't be ready for training camp and may be placed on an injury list.

The 49ers who have reportedly "patched things up" with Davis intend to welcome him and have him compete for the job at right tackle, which was the offensive line's weakest position heading into camp. While Davis could have filed for reinstatement at any point this offseason, he chose to wait until the week prior to 49ers training camp, which puts him behind others in learning the new coaching staff's offense.


Davis' 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.

Davis had retired due to health concerns, including the lingering effects of a concussion he suffered in 2014. Since his retirement, Davis has been promising to return to the NFL once he was healthy, but has also shown great frustration with the 49ers organization.

On April 1, he took a jab at the 49ers' general manager on Twitter saying, "Dealing with Trent [Baalke] is giving me a headache." That tweet has since been deleted.

On April 27, a frustrated Davis tweeted, "The 49ers should Draft an Offensive Tackle in the top 10." 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 later said 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."

49ers' culture led to Josh Dobbs and Jauan Jennings reunion

When Josh Dobbs signed a one-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent, he was already familiar with at least one new teammate. Dobbs played two seasons alongside Jauan Jennings, the Niners' dependable and physical wide receiver, at the University of Tennessee, and was thrilled to reunite with him in Santa Clara. San Francisco made Jennings a seventh-round draft pick in 2020. Four years later, they find themselves teammates once again. Jennings recently joined Dobbs on his podcast, "Torchbearers." The two reminisced about their time at Tennessee before briefly discussing their reunion with the Niners. When asked to share his thoughts on the team, Jennings offered a glowing assessment: "Everybody just comes to attack the job, to do their best, and

PFF mock draft has 49ers adding cornerback with 'unique fluidity and size'

Analyst Steve Palazzolo unveiled a first-round mock draft for Pro Football Focus, attempting to forecast the selections for each NFL team within the top 32 picks. While the San Francisco 49ers concentrated on strengthening the defensive line in free agency, Palazzolo envisions the team continuing to fortify that side of the ball. In his mock draft, Palazzolo predicts that the 49ers will select former Iowa State cornerback T.J. Tampa with the No. 31 overall pick. "Tampa's unique fluidity and size for a cornerback make him worthy of a top-75 pick," reads the analysis from Pro Football Focus' big board. "If he can clean up his footwork, he can

Deebo Samuel and Brock Purdy are why the 49ers can afford to pay Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla
Apr 10

It's evident that the San Francisco 49ers engaged in long-term financial planning. Much discussion has centered around the feasibility of the team committing significant financial resources to two wide receivers, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. Some skeptics question the wisdom of such heavy investment in a single position, especially considering that the 49ers handed Samuel a substantial three-year extension merely two years ago. Adding complexity to this debate is the impending contract extension for quarterback Brock Purdy, positioning him to become the highest-paid player on the team. He will likely even become one of the NFL's highest-paid players. Where he ranks in average salary will depend upon whether he can replicate the stellar performance of his Pro Bowl 2023
