Earlier today, word broke that the 49ers had signed tackle Anthony Davis to a five-year extension. The team has now announced the move.
“Anthony is a very hard working, dedicated and talented young player who has earned the respect of our entire organization,” 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke said. “Having already made significant strides early in his career, Anthony is just beginning to realize his full potential. We look forward to watching him achieve even greater results in the years to come.”
Davis, the 11th pick in the 2010 draft, has started all 48 regular-season games and five postseason games during his three-year career. The 49ers point out in the release announcing the deal that Davis, teammate Mike Iupati, Jaguars defensive tackle Tyson Alualu and Seahawks safety Earl Thomas are the only players from the 2010 draft to start every game since entering the league.This video is no longer available.
