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."

The 49ers' 2022 Season Has Officially Been Ruled 'Out' - SF 7, Philadelphia 31

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of

San Francisco 49ers players looked like they were saying farewell to DeMeco Ryans after the team's 31-7 defeat in the NFC Championship Game. The defensive coordinator is a top candidate for head-coaching jobs. After Sunday's game, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Ryans is expected to become the Houston Texans' next coach, assuming this week's second interview goes well. The fact that Ryans may have coached the 49ers defense for the last time finally hit players in the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field after their season ended. "I hadn't thought about it up to this point because obviously you think you're going to win it all," linebacker Fred



49ers' Nick Bosa on zero-sack performance: "I did a good part in the win today"

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional round to advance to the NFC Championship Game next weekend, winning in a 19-12 bout after holding their opponent scoreless over the last 11 minutes of the game. However, their win came without a sack from their star defensive end Nick Bosa, who has now gone without a sack in two consecutive weeks for the first time since Weeks 16 and 17 of the 2021 season, playoffs included. Bosa had only gone three games without a sack in the regular season, but has now missed a sack in two consecutive games, including a zero-pressure game against the Seahawks last weekend. But, zero sacks don't mean zero impact, and Bosa believed that his performance was a good one following San Francisco's
