The San Francisco 49ers held their first open practice of 2015 minicamp on Tuesday. It was preceded by Jim Tomsula speaking to the media for the first of three such sessions. Here is a full transcript. Do you have a full house here? Do you have a good attendance for this mini camp? "Yeah, yeah. Full house, right? Yeah." Everybody is here? "Yeah, everybody is here."

Anthony Davis expected to pay back remaining signing bonus money

The San Francisco 49ers will get some salary cap relief with Anthony Davis's departure. The right tackle will reportedly return unearned signing bonus money. Friday afternoon, things got a little bit crazy when Anthony Davis released a statement announcing his "retirement". I use quotation marks because he said he planned on coming back in "a year or so". He wants to get his brain and body right. We'll see if he does in fact return, but in the meantime, there are financial issues to consider.
