49ers, TE Vernon Davis Working On A Contract Extension

Discussion in 'San Francisco 49ers' started by BigBlueBruiser, May 10, 2010.

  1. Two league sources told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area the 49ers and tight end Vernon Davis' camp are working toward a contract extension. According to the two independent sources, Davis' side is asking for a five-year, $40 Million contract with $25 Million in guaranteed money. While a contract that averages $8 Million a year is considered high, it is a reasonable enough starting point for the sides to continue their discussions. It benefits Davis sign a long-term contract now before running the risk of injury through another season. And the 49ers can get Davis at a better price now than if he were to put together back-to-back outstanding seasons and hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

    I love how the guy from the Mercury news was saying the 49ers couldnt afford Davis since they resigned Willis...uhh no beleive or not the 49ers these days are pretty responsible with thier cap and arent going to let go of a TE that can block and just tied the TD record for TEs in a season.

    idk, he just crushed with alex freaking smith throwing him the ball, could you imagine him on the colts?

    hes not the most "complete" buts hes definitely the best receiver and hes just hitting stride

    Why isnt he complete? He has always been a excelent blocker and for this last season he tied the record for TDs by a TE.
