49ers could be without TE Vernon Davis until training camp

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis @VernonDavis85 wants a brand new contract. It was known he would be skipping OTAs, but a source close to the team recently told CSN Bay Area the coaching staff is prepared to be without him for "a while." Davis tied a career-best last year by catching 13 TDs. The 30-year-old pass-catcher has two years remaining on a six-year contract which he signed back in 2010.

Fantasy Analysis:

Davis' combined base salary over the next two years is "only" $9 million. Considering San Francisco requires the former Maryland Terrapins star to be a top playmaker in their offense, a heftier contract isn't entirely unreasonable. The problem is that the 49ers are so loaded with talent and after paying QB Colin Kaepernick a huge contract, the team may not be prepared to reward Davis a year early with a mega-deal. Until Davis starts missing chunks of training camp, his partial holdout should not affect his draft status. Not yet anyway.
