Davis has established himself as one of the top players at his position.
In a column for Monday Morning Quarterback, San Francisco 49ers TE Vernon Davis stated that he is isn’t planning to show up to offseason workouts.
Davis’s contract is set to take a $7.1 Million cap hit in 2014, according to Spotrac. Davis signed a five-year, $37 Million extension ($23 Million guaranteed), which, in 2010, was the largest contract for a tight end ever.
In 2009, Davis hauled in 78 receptions for 965 yards and 13 touchdowns, respectively. In the 2013 regular season, Davis registered 52 receptions for 850 yards and 13 touchdowns, respectively.
Per MMQB, Davis wrote:
Four years later, and I’m playing at a higher level than I was then, which brings me to why I’m holding out. It’s all about getting paid what you deserve. It’s not that complicated. I want the 49ers to win the Super Bowl, and I want to be on the field this summer working toward that goal, but I have to worry about my future first.
Davis is integral to the Niners’ offense, and, in all likelihood, will get a new deal of some sorts.
