49ers tight end Vernon Davis didn't attend the team's voluntary OTAs due to dissatisfaction with his contract. Next week, the 49ers open their mandatory minicamp. That means if you don't show up, it'll cost you. Davis wants to keep his money.
"You know what? I plan on being there," Davis said during a radio interview Thursday.
Davis has two years remaining on the six-year, $42.7 million contract he signed in 2010. There's about $9 million in salary left on it, including $4.7 million for this season.
This is noteworthy because if Davis isn't going to hold out of a minicamp, it pretty much assures he won't hold out of training camp. The 49ers added another solid wideout this offseason in the trade for Stevie Johnson . That could lead to a slight drop in targets for Davis, but he remains an obvious top-five fantasy tight end. He accumulated 850 yards and 13 touchdowns last year. He and Colin Kaepernick displayed a great connection after Davis was a total afterthought for many games in 2012.
