49ers GM Trent Baalke reached out to OT Anthony Davis on Monday explaining that the report of him being on the trading block is not true.
Trent text me this morning clarifying a “report that surfaced” saying that the trade accusations are “False Reporting”. 🕹

According to Peter King of MMQB.com, the 49ers will not be trading up for No. 7 overall in this year’s NFL draft.
A few speculative option for Davis could be the Lions and Giants, as they’ve shown interest in offensive tackles, but have yet to sign anyone notable.
Davis via his Twitter account that he plans to apply for reinstatement later this year after he surprisingly retired a year ago.
Davis, 26, is a former first-round pick who still has five years remaining on his seven-year, $39.67 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed. At the time of his retirement, he was set to make base salaries of $1.85 million (2015), $2.65 million (2016), $4 million (2017), and $5.375 million (2018-2019).
In 2014, Davis was limited appearing in seven games for the 49ers due to a number of injuries including concussion, knee and hamstring issues.
Bethea, 31, is in the third year of his four-year, $21 million contract that included a $5 million signing bonus. He stands to make base salaries of $4.5 million (2016) and $5.25 million (2017) over the remainder of the agreement.
His 2015 season came after he was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a torn pec back in October. He finished the year with 44 tackles, one sack and two pass defenses for the 49ers over the course of seven games.
We’ll have more regarding a potential trading involving both players as the news is available.
