At least a few investors are rooting for San Francisco 49er tight end Vernon Davis to have a lucrative career.
Professional athletes frequently get traded to other teams, but San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is about to be the first ever to be traded like a stock.
Vernon Davis is back in the Bay Area following a whirlwind, three-night visit to the Sochi Olympics early last week as USA Curling's honorary captain, and the 49ers tight end is now ready to resume his regular offseason football training regimen.
Princess Anne of Britain, Prince Hakan of Norway and Prince Albert of Monaco have been among the VIPs at the Olympic curling tournament this week.
Former Maryland tight end Vernon Davis has another gig--as the honorary captain of the United State curling team. He showed off his skills with Arsenio Hall.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — There's a far different dynamic for Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers' offense this time around against Carolina.
The oddsmakers weren't fazed by three road teams winning in the wild-card round. They've made two of those winners, the Saints and Chargers, big underdogs on Saturday in the divisional round.
Former Maryland tight end Vernon Davis showed off his "Maryland Pride" helmet on Instagram after they were auctioned off this fall.
The Redskins' defense made a big play early in the second half but hope for a comeback quickly faded for the team.
Davis, now in his eighth season, will return to the area this weekend in advance of the 49ers' game against the Washington Redskins on Monday night. It won't be his first game against the Redskins, nor will it be his first time facing them at FedEx Field. It will, however, still be special for someone who has maintained a strong connection with his hometown.
The Davis brothers will be putting everything on the line Sunday.
Colin Kaepernick is a mystery man under center, a strong-armed passer one moment and a 25-year-old kid who can run right out of the pocket for a huge gain the next.
Make way Joe Montana and Steve Young. Colin Kaepernick is leading a brash new group of 49ers to the Super Bowl.
As Alex Smith stood on the sideline with a concussion, San Francisco's potential quarterback of the future went to work — and fast.
Alex Smith had rallied his team for a late victory against the Lions last fall at Ford Field, and had no intention of cutting it close this time on his home turf.
"I usually wait about a month and go slow pace," he said. "I do my own thing, hit the weights, run, do a lot of track-oriented workouts. It has helped me in the past, it works for me."
"That was a long trip, whew. It was well worth it, I had a great time over there," Davis said by phone Tuesday. "It was a lot of fun, I met a lot of people. People were happy to have me there and it was a wonderful time, I must say. Any time I have an opportunity to help bring some awareness to something, to be a part of something, and especially if it's different, curling is different, it brings me joy being able to say I'm part of that."
