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,...

Colin Kaepernick hails Vernon Davis' arrival at 49ers camp

Kaepernick on Stevie Johnson: “He creates so much separation. Very quick, very deceptive.”

49ers TE Vernon Davis reports to training camp

49ers training camp opened its doors to all veterans on Wednesday, and as expected by some, tight end Vernon Davis was in the building. His presence was confirmed through an Instagram video by safety C.J. Spillman. A source has told Pro Football Talk that Davis still wants a new contract, but he came to the conclusion that getting what he wants wasn't worth a $30,000 fine for each day of camp missed. Plus, the 49ers only negotiate with players who are in camp. FANTASY ANALYSIS: Thus, it's business as usual for Davis and fantasy owners. A repeat of his 13 touchdowns seems unlikely with Michael...
