Anthony Davis’ weight down to 332 from 370

Jul 31, 2016 at 1:13 PM--


Anthony Davis looked noticeably thinner during his first practice since retiring prior to the 2015 season. The San Francisco 49ers held their first practice of training camp on Sunday and Davis was among the participants.

How much weight did he lose? Davis stated that his weight was as high as 370 pounds at one point. He is now at 332 pounds. "I don't know how I played at that weight either," said Davis.

His teammates appeared happy to have him back with the team. "I'm excited he's able to be back with the football team and just speaking with him for the last two days now, he's real excited to be back here too," said OT Joe Staley. "Just seeing the shape he came back in, the strength, ready to go, mentally focused."

"It was great to see him back. He looks good. He looks ready to go," said QB Colin Kaepernick regarding Davis.

Head coach Chip Kelly stated earlier on Sunday that Davis would start at the bottom of the depth chart because he has not had the offseason reps or the time with the playbook that others have had. He ended up working with the third-team offense during practice according to Chris Biderman of Niners Wire. Trent Brown worked with the first-team while rookie John Theus worked with the second-team. Erik Pears, who started at right tackle last season, worked at left tackle with the second-team today.

While speaking to the media, Davis declined to discuss how much money he had to give back to the 49ers upon his retirement. "I don't want to make people sick," said Davis.

Whenever Seth Wickersham reveals a tidbit from his new book, "It's Better to Be Feared," examining the New England Patriots dynasty, Tom Brady, and his departure from the team, it always seems specifically directed at 49ers fans. And no, I'm not exaggerating. Earlier today, more news from Wickersham's book was revealed via ESPN scout Matt Miller, where it was reported that the Patriots allegedly offered a second-round pick for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Day 1 of the 2021 NFL Draft, to which the 49ers said no because they desired a first-rounder in return. The Patriots remained in the first round, selecting Mac Jones with the 15th overall pick, while the 49ers took Trey Lance after trading up to the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL

If you ask former San Francisco 49ers safety, Donte Whitner, a question, be prepared for the answer, because he doesn't hold back. Whitner was a guest on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show on Tuesday, and spoke on the 49ers current quarterback situation. When asked about what he has been seeing in Jimmy Garoppolo, Whitner answered, "He's only looking for Deebo Samuel. And you better believe the defense understands that. When you lead the team significantly in targets, the defense is going to key in on that. That was what happened on that touchdown, that interception throw to Xavier Rhodes." He is speaking of the play that sealed the 49ers fourth straight loss, on which Rhodes intercepted Garoppolo and almost ran it back for a touchdown. Whitner
