San Francisco 49ers OT Anthony Davis hasn’t received a lot of attention for his sturdy blocking, but after landing a hefty contract extension, Davis is finally in the spotlight.
OT Anthony Davis is a monster. At 6’5″, 323 pounds, Davis is a force to be reckoned with.
Coming out of Rutgers University in 2010, then HC Greg Schiano (currently has the same role for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) said that Davis “will be a 1 contract and done kinda guy in the NFL.“
Well, Schiano is wrong, as Davis signed a $37.3 Million contract extension. This is fantastic for Davis, who is a fantastic blocker who finally is getting credit.
For Rutgers, this could not have come at a worse time. They are in the midst of a situation where the basketball head coach was physically and verbally abusing players, and the turmoil is just riling up.
Anyhow, it’s always nice to see a player prove somebody wrong. Davis should be feeling pretty good about himself right now.
