If 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wants out of San Francisco, he hasn’t said so in his own words. 49ers tackle Anthony Davis now has.
“I do not want to work with a front office or anyone else who seemingly doesn’t want to win as bad as I do,” Davis said via Twitter on Wednesday night.
“Would you happily rent your body out to people that bullsh-t you and constantly try to manipulate you?” Davis added. “I hope you’d stand up for yourself. . . . I don’t like the back and forth messy sh-t. Don’t speak to me in code.”
Davis earlier tweeted that the “49ers should draft an offensive tackle in the top 10.”
On April 1, Davis said he plans to unretire later this offseason, but that “[d]ealing with [G.M.] Trent [Baalke] is giving me a headache.” On April 12, after a report surfaced that the 49ers are trying to trade Davis, Davis said that Baalke told Davis that report is false.
Davis retired a year ago, and he has repaid the portion of the signing bonus applicable to the 2015 league year. It’s possible that the 49ers have refused to refund the signing bonus upon his reinstatement.
It’s probable that Davis opted to state his case on Wednesday night to turn the supposedly false trade report into something that actually happens.
