- Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that 49ers OL Anthony Davis‘ recent retirement will owe the team $1.235 million in 2016, which is 14/17ths of his signing bonus money he received previously.
- If Davis is still retired next year, Florio mentions that he would also owe San Francisco $1.5 million.
- Had Davis stuck with the team in 2015 and forced them to cut him, he would have pocketed over $4.4 million, according to Florio.
New Jets TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins didn’t offer much regarding his recent DUI arrest that led to him being cut by the Buccaneers.
“It’s a legal matter,” Seferian-Jenkins said Thursday, via Rich Cimini of ESPN. “I can’t explain that at this time.”
Seferian-Jenkins did, however, say he was “thankful” for the opportunity with the Jets.
“I have to hold up my end of the bargain and do what’s expected of me,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “I’m looking forward to it. I’m going to take full advantage of my opportunities.”
