Vernon Davis Still Unhappy About His Contract Situation, Despite Reporting To Camp


Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that although 49ers TE Vernon Davis reported to training camp on Wednesday, he still wants a new contract from the team.

According to Florio, he’s “definitely” not okay about moving forward without a raise in pay. However, San Francisco reportedly refuses to negotiate with players who are holding out for a new deal.

A league source has informed Florio that multiple factors led to Davis’ decision to ultimately report to camp including: $30,000 per day in fines and a portion of his signing bonus being forfeited after five days.

Davis, 30, signed a six-year, $42.705 million contract that included $23 million guaranteed. He has base salaries of $4.7 million and $4.35 million coming his way over the next two years.

Last year, Davis caught 52 passes for 850 yards receiving and scored 13 touchdowns for the 49ers. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 7 tight end in the league.
