Vernon Davis hides out as an employee at his Jamba Juice

Vernon Davis hides out as an employee at his Jamba Juice

For those that were not aware, Vernon Davis owns a Jamba Juice, and I believe he is hoping to open more. He's always been one to look out for his off-field earning potential. That resulted in his deal with his Fantex deal, and his Captain Torpedo movie trailer. The video above comes from some undercover work he did. He played the role of an employee, and has some video from his day as an employee. It's cheesy, but fun. That basically seems to describe Vernon off the field. Well, from what we know of him at least. He does some bizarre and random things. Feel free to consider this an open...

Vernon Davis's Captain Torpedo thing continues with movie scene

Vernon Davis's Captain Torpedo thing continues with movie scene

Last week, shortly after returning to training camp, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis tweeted out something about being a new superhero called Captain Torpedo. It was rather baffling, but we're starting to get more details. Above you can see a "leaked scene" from what appears to be some kind of movie. This followed a Monday tweet of this movie poster: With great football comes great responsibility. I am #CaptainTorpedo pic.twitter.com/ZpTLegnwvw — Vernon Davis (@VernonDavis85) July 28, 2014 The movie poster listed French Mustache Production as the production company. If...

Aldon Smith, Vernon Davis, back in 49ers fold

The two biggest distractions of the 49ers offseason – packaged in two of the most talented players on the team – appeared before the media and microphones at 49ers minicamp on Thursday.   Earlier in the day Jim Harbaugh, standing in the shiny new press conference room inside Levi’s Stadium declared that the 49ers were “the least unhappy team” that he’s ever been around.  And no amount of contract concerns or legal issues was going to change his stance.   But Vernon Davis and Aldon Smith have both created different but significant strains of unhappiness over the past several...

Golden Nuggets: Training Camp officially opens as Vernon Davis ends holdout

Thursday, July 24, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone. Training camp opened for the whole roster yesterday and we finally have a good amount of links to go over. The biggest news of the day was Vernon Davis ending his holdout and reporting for camp. I was glad to see it, and I definitely do not disagree with the idea that he simply pulled a veteran move and skipped minicamp. The way the NFL negotiates its contracts is the least fair to the players of the big three American sports leagues, so I definitely...

Vernon Davis has created a new super hero, Captain Torpedo

Vernon Davis has created a new super hero, Captain Torpedo

So, umm, yea...Vernon Davis tweeted out something a little odd. Any thoughts on what it means? Wednesday morning, San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis reported to training camp, ending what might have turned into a cantankerous holdout. However, after skipping mandatory minicamp, Davis decided he had done all he could, and returned in time for the start of training camp. The whole holdout situation has been odd, but for the moment, it's behind us. If he does not get a new deal, I suppose this will come back up again next season, but for now, it's off the front burner. Upon returning,...
