It looks like veteran tight end Vernon Davis has decided to call it a career.

During a bit on FOX’s pregame show, Rob Gronkowski said he had found a retirement crew to hang out with in Miami ahead of Super Bowl LIV. He introduced former Steelers and Patriots linebacker James Harrison and then introduced Davis as another part of the group.

“That’s right. I’m retired,” Davis said.

Davis played in only four games for Washington during the 2019 season before suffering a concussion that ultimately led to a spot on injured reserve. He spent the last four seasons with Washington and spent his first nine seasons with the 49ers before an in-season trade to the Broncos in 2015.

Davis had 583 catches for 7,562 yards and 63 touchdowns over the course of his career. He was a two-time Pro Bowler and a second-team All-Pro in 2013.

  1. Somehow VD ended up on my fantasy team every year that he played. I think he got me about 18pts total. I hope he can finally take care of that turf toe.

  2. He tanked his way in 2014 to a trade and a Super Bowl ring in Denver. It is a disgrace.

  3. Mike Singletary might not have a lot of accomplishments as an NFL head coach, but getting Davis to settle down and focus on reaching his potential is his greatest one.

  4. Congratulations! It only took a kick in the butt from Mike Singletary to get his attention!

  5. Most get the contract then coast or decide all the sudden they don’t like football anymore. He was that guy for a while.
