Anthony Davis officially reinstated and reports to 49ers today

Jul 30, 2016 at 12:14 PM--


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."

Jay Gruden reveals how much Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers were willing to give up for Kirk Cousins

By David Bonilla
Nov 14

Upon being hired as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Shanahan planned to be patient and build a roster in preparation for potentially inserting quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins was with Washington at the time, but it was a near-certainty that the relationship would eventually end. The 49ers coached rolled with placeholders until that time presented itself. The 49ers have admitted that they looked into potentially trading for Cousins. However, with the situation in Washington speeding toward an eventual divorce, it seemed to make more sense to wait and see what happened. There was also the obstacle of the strained relationship between the Shanahans and Washington. Cousins never ended up in Santa Clara with Shanahan. The free-agent quarterback



Could Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers face a second rebuild this off-season?

By Chris Beno

As the 2021 season reaches the halfway point, one thing is for sure: there is still a lot of football left. Even with the San Francisco 49ers sitting at 3-5, they still (thanks to an underperforming NFC) have a legitimate shot at getting to the playoffs this year. But it's not too early to start thinking about the future. If the season were to end now, head coach Kyle Shanahan would be coming off his fourth losing season in five years. The 49ers would also have over 30 players entering free agency, no first-round draft pick in 2022, and appear to be on the brink of a second rebuild under the current front office. Just for fun, let's begin thinking about what this off-season could look like for the 49ers. How this season wraps up will strongly determine the approach this
