Tight end Vernon Davis announces he’s holding out


Vernon Davis publicly announced via a column featured in Peter King’s Monday Morning Quarterback that he will hold out of training camp.

“…I have to worry about my future first. Most of my teammates and many players in the NFL understand that. A few don’t,” Davis wrote.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport tweeted confirmation that Vernon Davis will hold out.

Davis is the third-highest paid tight end in the NFL behind Jason Witten and Rob Gronkowski. Based off their contracts, Davis must be looking for a contract in the ballpark of five years for $54 million with gurantees of $15-$20 million.

Davis has two years left on his six-year, $42.7 million contract and is set to make roughly $11 million over the next two years.

      What I don’t understand is how concerned he is about providing for his family. He’s earned probably $50 million so far. He and his grandchildren will all be set for life!
