For years now, former 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has been telling anyone who will listen that he had his post-football sights on a career as a thespian.
It seems such an unlikely vocational path — from entirely physical to largely emotional — that it was a fair question to ask him: “Really, Vernon? Or are you acting?”
He’s serious. Last offseason he appeared in the Western film “Hell at the Border.”
Prior to that he appeared on the “Inside Amy Schumer” TV series in 2016, and “Baywatch” with Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron, released in 2017.
