In today's 49ers news update, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is staying noncommittal when it comes to whether or not he will join the team for mandatory mini-camp two weeks from now.
Per Eric Branch of SFGate.com, Davis offered a very evasive answer when asked if he would be attending said camp: “I might be there,” he said, with a wry smile. “I might not. It’s mandatory. I probably should be there. We’ll see.”
As CSN Bay Area previously reported, Davis has been absent from offseason training activities due to dissonance over his current contract. He has forfeited $200,000 so far due to his absence
According to Branch, "his $7.35 million average annual salary over the life of his contract ranks third among tight end behind New England’s Rob Gronkowski ($9 million through 2019) and Dallas’ Jason Witten ($7.4 million through 2017)."
Davis is most likely looking for a salary that could top Gronkowski's, arguing perhaps that he brings the skills of a wide receiver to the position.
