Glenn is a true pro who has quickly become a valued contributor to our organization both on and off the field,” said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. “He is a quick study and a very good football player that has earned this extension, and we look forward to his future contributions.

The 49ers have waived running back Kendall Hunter who suffered a torn ACL early in training camp.

The 49ers are hoping that no one claims Hunter and he clears waivers, thus adding him to their injured-reserve list. If a team happens to claim Hunter they will have to pay his $645,000 contract.

Stay tuned to see if the 49ers risk pays off…

For those that are unaware, Vernon Davis is now a superhero. He goes by the name Captain Torpedo. Now I’m not sure if this is a real movie, a joke or what the hell it is, but today footage was leaked from the movie ‘Captain Torpedo’ and it appears Vernon’s weakness is seaweed.

It seems the people who put on the production do a lot of work with FunnyorDie. So let’s hope this is more funny and less die.

Enjoy…

News out of Ninerland is that linebacker Ahmad Brooks has restructured his contract, giving the 49ers an additional $2 million in cap space.

So this gives the 49ers more cap room, (word is around $7.9 million) which could be used for extensions for either Michael Crabtree, Mike Iupati or Alex Boone.

Vernon Davis Talks Upon Returning to Camp http://49ersnews.com/2014/07/vernon-davis-talks-returning-camp/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/07/vernon-davis-talks-returning-camp/#comments Thu, 24 Jul 2014 20:24:10 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=8942 Vernon Davis speaks to the media upon returning to training camp.

The post Vernon Davis Talks Upon Returning to Camp appeared first on .

]]>
One of the big questions this offseason was would Vernon Davis show up for training camp or would he hold out in hopes of a new contract. Wednesday was the first day for the veterans to report to camp and Vernon did show along with everyone else, but Alex Boone who is holding out.

The team did not make Vernon available for yesterday’s media session, but he was available on Thursday. Here is the transcript:

Vernon Davis was interviewed outside the 49ers’ locker room Thursday afternoon. Here is a transcript:

Q: How is it being back?

Davis: It’s great. It’s great being back. I’m extremely excited to be here and working with the guys again.

Q: Was it an easy decision to come?

Davis: It was a very easy decision. All you have to do is think about the team, and that’s what I did. I thought about my teammates, especially some of the guys like Frank Gore, guys who are on the last end of their contract, guys who I love and would die for. There is nothing like being here. There is nothing like it. It’s great. It’s such a blessing to be able to go out here and practice with these guys and get better.

Q: What do you hope happens with you contract?

Davis: You know what, that’s in the past. I’m not really worried about the contract. That’s between the team and my agent.

Q: Have they given you any indication that they’re going to talk about the contract now that you’re in camp?

Davis: You know what, that’s not my focus right now. That’s between the team and my agent at the moment. My focus is out here, trying to get better.

Q: How did you stay in shape while you weren’t here?

Davis: Just training, just practicing, just giving my all like I try to do each and every offseason. Just staying on top of it. It’s a business – you have to take care of yourself and do the proper things that it takes to be good at your craft. That’s what I’ve pretty much been doing.

Q: Where did you train?

Davis: You know what, I go right over to my gym, D-1 Sports, and I train there. I put all the work in that I possibly can to get better each and every day.

Q: Do you think it was a mistake to miss training camp?

Davis: You know what, at the time, sometimes things happen. I can’t really speak for that moment because, as I said, right now I’m just focused on training camp and I’m just trying to get better. The only thing I can think about right now is being out here with these guys and getting better.

Q: Did the 49ers fine you for the time you missed?

Davis: I’m sure they did. Absolutely.

Q: $270,000?

Davis: Oooh yeah, absolutely.

Q: Was it worth it to you?

Davis: You know what, I just love playing football. I love playing football. Any time that I’m away from these guys, I’m hurting, I’m hurting. And it really hurt me to be away from this group because we have such a special group. We definitely have a playoff team and we definitely want to get back to where we left off.

Q: So why did you do it? Why did you hold out of OTAs and mini-camp?

Davis: You know what, the contract issue is up to my agent and the 49ers, like I said. Just like anything, everybody always wants a deal – every player in the league. It’s just the nature of the game.

Q: Do you regret the media tour you did, going on ESPN and making those comments?

Davis: I can’t really, I vaguely remember the things that I said. I can’t really remember at the moment.

Q: Now that you’re here, you’re in it to win it, though, right? Regardless of your contract situation.

Davis: I’m in it to win it. It’s all about the team. It’s all about winning games.

Q: What’s your take on the playbook and what they did to simplify it?

Davis: I think it’s great, some of the changes that they made. I can’t really get into it like I want to because that’s our business here. The playbook is tough, it’s challenging. But the key is staying on top of it during the offseason, when you’re not doing anything, when you’re just sitting around. Stay on top of it. That’s something I had the opportunity to do even though I wasn’t here. I stayed on top of the playbook because I knew that eventually I would be back here.

Q: Jim Harbaugh had some pretty pointed words during your holdout. Did he have a conversation with you specifically?

Davis: No, he didn’t, he didn’t. But you know, as a coach, you’re supposed to do the right, you’re supposed to say the right thing, you’re supposed to be all about your team. I have nothing against Harbaugh. He can say the worst things in the world about me, I don’t care. He’s my coach. I’m still going to love him regardless. I come here to do my job and that’s it.

Q: Are you happy?

Davis: I’m elated. Everyone is excited to be here. We look forward to the future. We’re optimistic about the whole entire season. We’re just trying to get from Point a to Point B. We can do that by going out here and putting it all together and keep getting better.

Q: What do you think of Alex Boone holding out?

DAVIS: I have nothing to do with Alex Boone. That’s between him, his agent and the team.

Q: Are there going to be enough balls to go around with all these new receivers?

Davis: I hope so. It’s going to be great. We’ve got Stevie Johnson, (Michael) Crabtree, we’ve got all of those guys. At the end of the day if I’m just blocking, that’s good, too. If they’re catching passes, that’s good for me as well.
