San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis wanted a new contract. He even went so far to miss various offseason activities and threaten to hold out.
Davis showed up though at the start of training camp, and in the process earned the praise of quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“Vernon’s not the type of person that’s going to walk out on his team like that,” Kaepernick said, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.
Interestingly enough, that is exactly the reasoning that Vernon Davis gave when discussing his reason to show up. Davis said he thought about his teammates and guys like Frank Gore in the later years of their career.
“It was a very easy decision. All you have to do is think about the team,” Davis said. “That’s what I did. I thought about my teammates, especially some of the guys like Frank Gore and the guys that are on the last year of their contracts, guys who I love, would die for. There’s nothing like being here. Nothing like it. It’s great. It’s such a blessing to be able to go out here and practice with these guys.”
