49ers’ Anthony Davis un-retired, now may re-retire

San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis is considering retiring from the NFL. Again.

Last year, Davis was placed on the reserve-retired list by the 49ers and sat out the entire season, although he said he was just taking a break, not retiring, and this year he returned to the team. Now, with the season about to start, Davis may walk away again.

On their official injury, report, the 49ers listed Davis as questionable but listed the reason as “not injury related.” The San Jose Mercury News reports that Davis may retire again but the 49ers are trying to convince him to keep playing.

The 49ers were expecting Davis to start at right guard Monday night against the Rams, but they may need to scramble and reconfigure their offensive line if Davis walks away.

    Why would you go through a whole training camp just to retire again?

  3. bobthebillsfan says: Sep 10, 2016 5:28 PM

    Does not appear to be someone the team can count on. Wonder what is going on in his head.

    Jed York…

    Must just really love the grind of training camp.

    If you ain’t feeling it, don’t go out on that field. Too damn dangerous unless you are 100% in to it.

    He probably realized that he didn’t want to go through the rigors of a NFL season, the toll on his body, for a measly 3-4 wins.

    Nobody has is better, right? Santa Clara 49ers

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, ….

    Dude, man up or you will regret it later.

    Probably can’t keep up with the stupidly fast pace Chip runs his offense.

  12. whiteybulgersson says: Sep 10, 2016 5:55 PM

    Why try to convince him? Once he starts thinking like this, it’s over. Belichick would let him go. The difference between loser and winner organization.s

    Favre may have influenced him in some unforeseen ways.

  14. cribbage12 says: Sep 10, 2016 6:03 PM

    He only just realized Harbaugh is gone and everybody has it better than them.

  15. pamperpro says: Sep 10, 2016 6:07 PM

    He’s embarrassed to play for a dumpster fire team.

  16. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 10, 2016 6:07 PM

    AD had AD Syndrome, I think.

  17. thegreatgabbert says: Sep 10, 2016 6:09 PM

    His parents won’t have to stay up late to watch MNF now.

    If the front office had any brains (serious evidence to the contrary continually being submitted), all the $ in that contract would have been in the form of game checks.
    Zero games played=Zero dollars earned. We don’t need you at practice, it’s all about the regular season games! And that didn’t say “and playoff games” because there is NO Frickin way…

  19. number1hawkfan says: Sep 10, 2016 6:39 PM

    Was probably hoping the niners would trade or release him. He probably looked around the league and thought “everybody has it better…. What am I doing on this sinking ship”?

  20. mindelm42 says: Sep 10, 2016 8:17 PM

    Giants could use him…

  21. thermalito says: Sep 10, 2016 9:35 PM

    Considering I am an EX-49ers fan I could care less. Followed the team for 30 years but will never watch another game or contribute another dime to this despicable franchise that fully supports spitting in the face of police officers, veterans and service members ever again. I hope the Rams annihilate the Santa Clara Social Justice Warriors on Monday

  22. azcactus says: Sep 10, 2016 10:31 PM

    Doesn’t want to play for Jed and Baalke lol

  23. 1phillyphan says: Sep 10, 2016 10:43 PM

    He was defiantly hoping for a trade or release. Big O lineman do NOT want to play in Kelly’s gimmick offense….I’m sure all those talks with Brett Favre, didn’t help

  24. bert1913 says: Sep 10, 2016 11:26 PM

    maybe he left his heart in San Fransisco

  25. chitowngronk says: Sep 11, 2016 3:49 AM

    You’ll never get that age or paycheck back son

  26. brettfavreisapacker4ever says: Sep 11, 2016 10:29 AM

    If he had a chance to play for a winner I’ll bet he wouldn’t even think about re retiring. I think the Packers could use a veteran guard. I’ll bet he could be had for a 4th rd pick, maybe less.
