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."

John Lynch says 49ers adding Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk made for a 'tremendous draft'

As NFL teams continue to practice social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the San Francisco 49ers are holding their State of the Franchise this week — virtually. General manager John Lynch spoke with the voice of the 49ers, Greg Papa, as part of the event, and discussed the team's two first-round picks in April's draft — defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw and wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. San Francisco selected Kinlaw out of South Carolina with the No. 14 overall pick. The team initially owned the No. 13 overall selection, thanks to the trade that sent DeForest Buckner to the Indianapolis Colts, but moved down one spot and still acquired the player they coveted. "Going in, I would say, with the 13th pick, we had probably three guys that we were going

The next inductee into the Edward J. DeBartolo Sr. San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame sat down with Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area for the latest episode of the 49ers Insider Podcast. Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver
