Could Giants swoop in on tackle desperate for 49ers trade?

It makes almost too much sense. Anthony Davis, from Piscataway, N.J., who played his college ball at Rutgers and started 71 games at right tackle for the 49ers, wants no part of playing in San Francisco anymore and the Giants have a significant need for help at right tackle. Davis retired at age 25 before...

Anthony Davis deletes tweet about 49ers medical staff

Anthony Davis is clearly pissed off. And if he has specifics, then so be it. But this tweet then delete is getting old. Prior to the start of the San Francisco 49ers offseason workout program, I figured Colin Kaepernick was the likely candidate to pull a Costanza to try and force his way out of the organization. Turns out Anthony Davis is that person. The retired right tackle tweeted on Thursday that the 49ers should draft a tackle in the first round, and that he did not want to work with a front office or anyone else who doesn't seem to want to win as bad as him. Well, he added and...

Anthony Davis tweets the 49ers should go offensive tackle

The outspoken and currently retired San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle takes to Twitter to suggest what the 49ers should draft We still haven't heard word about Anthony Davis returning to the San Francisco 49ers, let alone the National Football League since we heard about the headaches Trent Baalke was giving him. Regardless if he returns or not, Davis went to Twitter to give his own suggestions on what position the 49ers should draft. The position makes sense, but is a bit surprising coming from Davis: Anthony Davis plays (or played) offensive tackle. At first I...

More Trent Baalke pre-draft talk: Anthony Davis status doesn't change the draft

After Anthony Davis' now infamous "headache tweet," his status has become more questionable, but not to Trent Baalke and everyone in his draft room. San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke met with the media on Wednesday for a pre-draft discussion. He was asked about Anthony Davis and his potential return. Baalke said Anthony Davis’ status does not affect the draft plans of the team at all. Below is a transcript of what he said about the Davis situation and the infamous headache tweet: Where do things stand with Anthony Davis? As of right now, to my knowledge, he hasn’t...

Trading for Anthony Davis would be a mistake

The 49ers are rumored to have formerly retired offensive lineman Anthony Davis on the trading block, but don't expect the Lions to make a play for him. As free agency is coming to a close and we await the NFL Draft, still over two weeks away, the first wave of offseason boredom is in full effect. With that boredom comes the overreaction to any sort of tidbit that can be perceived as news. So when the words "trading block" float to the top of your twitter timeline, ears of 32 different fanbases perk up. So when Peter King of MMQB innocently dropped a "niblet" that the San Francisco 49ers...

Should the Colts pursue 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis in a trade?

The MMQB's Peter King reports that the 49ers want to trade right tackle Anthony Davis, so should the Colts be interested? Last year, San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis abruptly and surprisingly retired from the NFL.  After sitting out the 2015 season, however, Davis seems to want to play again.  It was initially reported, and Davis then confirmed on twitter that he plans to apply for reinstatement at some point later this year. Davis also added on twitter that dealing with 49ers general manager Trent Baalke was "giving me a headache," which could seem to suggest that he...

Colts could be able to get first round talent with their second round pick

The MMQB's Peter King had some interesting comments from talent evaluators this morning about the lack of a talent gap in this year's NFL Draft, meaning the Colts may be able to get first round talent with their second round pick. In today's version of the Monday Morning Quarterback, the MMQB's Peter King mentions several interesting draft tidbits that he's hearing from executives and personnel from around the league.  One particular note has interest to Colts fans, as King cites several people as saying the talent gap isn't too large. "[Pick number] Twenty-five to 55 is the same player,...

Colts to meet with Maryland defensive back Sean Davis

The Indianapolis Colts either have already or will soon meet with Maryland defensive back Sean Davis, reports The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson. One interesting draft prospect that the Indianapolis Colts either already met with or will soon meet with is Maryland defensive back Sean Davis. According to The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson, the Colts are one of a number of teams to have met with or lined up a meeting with the DB. Wilson reports that on Friday Davis worked out for Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and then afterward broke down film with him.  The defensive...

Trent Baalke tells Anthony Davis MMQB trade rumor report is false

Who's playing games in this whole thing? Anthony Davis apparently got some assurances that the San Francisco 49ers are not trying to trade him. Peter King reported in his MMQB column that one person told him the 49ers were trying to move Davis and Antoine Bethea. Davis tweeted out later in the day that Trent Baalke texted him that it was "false reporting". I think the most important thing to figure out is why he chose to include an Atari controller emoji in his tweet. I assume it means something about "playing games", but the question is who he thinks is playing...

NFL Mock Draft 2016: Three-round mock draft has Colts addressing three needs

SB Nation's Dan Kadar has the Colts addressing three needs in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft in his latest mock draft. The NFL Draft is finally getting close, and that means that we'll only have to endure a few more weeks of mock drafts before we can focus on the players that teams actually take.  We're not at that point yet, however, so there are still plenty of mock drafts being released. Today, SB Nation's Dan Kadar released his most recent mock draft as he typically does on Mondays, and he has the Colts taking Georgia outside linebacker Leonard Floyd in the first round with...

If "retired" RT Anthony Davis wants to play, should New York Giants be interested?

San Francisco reportedly trying to trade Davis, who is expected to return to the NFL in 2016. Former San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis is "retired" from the NFL. Well, technically, anyway. After five years as a starter for the 49ers, the 2011 first-round pick retired before the 2015 season. Davis, though, is expected to return to football at some point, with David Fucillo of Niners Nation telling me that Davis has "repeatedly said he's coming back." Peter King mentioned in his "Monday Morning Quarterback" column that he has been told San Francisco is trying to trade the...

NFL trade rumor: '[49ers] want to trade Anthony Davis and Antoine Bethea'

NFL trade rumors are heating up as the 2016 NFL Draft approaches, and the San Francisco 49ers are firmly planted in the middle of them. We've heard plenty of rumors about Colin Kaepernick, but SI's Peter King heard something different recently. In his MMQB column this week, King posted a grab-bag of rumors he has heard. One front office person (no clarification on what role) said the 49ers want to trade offensive tackle Anthony Davis and strong safety Antoine Bethea. The Davis mention is not shocking. The 49ers one-time right tackle retired last year, and has yet to apply for...
