NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan hears "retired" RT Anthony Davis is "badly out of shape."
The Giants have been a rumored trade partner for Davis, who wants out of San Francisco if he unretires, so it makes sense that one of their beat writers would do some digging. It seemed like a formality Davis would rejoin the league earlier this offseason, but the closer we get to training camp the less likely it becomes. Davis might rather sit out another year than play for 49ers GM Trent Baalke. May 10 - 8:55 AM

49ers GM Trent Baalke said the team has not made any decisions on RT Anthony Davis because "he's retired."

Davis criticized the 49ers' front office earlier this week in a tweet that has since been deleted. The former first-round pick has spent most of the offseason hyping his comeback but has not taken any of the necessary steps for reinstatement. "Right now, he’s not in the National Football League," said Baalke. "So there’s no reason to even speculate on what we’re going to do or what we might do." Baalke rightly feels he has better things to do than worry about criticism from a player who isn't even in the NFL.

49ers "retired" RT Anthony Davis tweeted, "I do not want to work with a front office or anyone else who seemingly doesn't want to win as bad as I do."

Davis has been hinting at a comeback for months but has yet to file the paperwork for reinstatement. The 49ers still own his rights but it doesn't look like Davis wants to be part of the team's rebuilding movement. Rumors surfaced earlier this month that the 49ers were shopping Davis, but GM Trent Baalke quickly shot those down. Davis' status with the team is in limbo right now.
Apr 27 - 8:10 PM

49ers "retired" RT Anthony Davis was told by GM Trent Baalke he is not on the trade block.

A Monday report claimed the 49ers were looking to move Davis and SS Antoine Bethea. Davis said Baalke texted him the report was not true, calling it "false reporting." Davis has said he will apply for reinstatement after "retiring" last year, but he has yet to file the paperwork and was absent for the beginning of the offseason program. He may wait until closer to training camp to make it official.

MMQB's Peter King reports the 49ers are looking to trade "retired" RT Anthony Davis and SS Antoine Bethea.

Davis announced earlier this month he will apply for reinstatement, but he also said, "Dealing with [GM] Trent [Baalke} is giving me a headache." The comment was thought to be in jest at the time, but perhaps the relationship between Davis and Baalke has fractured, a running theme during Baalke's tenure. No matter the circumstances, acquiring draft picks for a 31-year-old safety and an already once-retired tackle could prove the best option for a team in the depths of what could be a long rebuild.

"Retired" 49ers RT Anthony Davis did not report for the beginning of the offseason program on Monday.

Davis, who sat out 2015, has said he'll be filing for reinstatement "later this year." The 26-year-old tackle appears content to sit out the more tedious parts of the offseason before resuming his NFL career. We'll see how that sits with taskmaster coach Chip Kelly.
Apr 4 - 1:37 PM

"Retired" RT Anthony Davis tweeted that he'll file for reinstatement "later this year."

"I'll be filing for reinstatement to the NFL later this year," Davis tweeted Friday. "Dealing with [GM] Trent [Baalke} is giving me a headache." Baalke has been in contact with Davis this offseason and has said the team will welcome him back for the final five years of his contract. It'll be a big boost to the offense after Erik Pears was forced to take over right tackle for the 49ers last year. Davis is still just 26 and should return to being one of the game's top right tackles.
Apr 1 - 1:01 PM

Speaking Tuesday, 49ers GM Trent Baalke hinted the team will welcome retired OT Anthony Davis back when he formally applies for reinstatement.

"(By) having a coaching staff that’s new, everyone is starting on a clean slate," Baalke said. "And anything that’s a hangover from the previous stuff gets dealt with a little differently." Davis caught the 49ers off guard with his June 2015 decision to step away, leaving a hole at right tackle they struggled to fill. Davis will almost certainly immediately slot back in opposite LT Joe Staley when/if he formalizes his return.
Mar 22 - 6:15 PM

Retired RT Anthony Davis will apply for reinstatement and wants to play in 2016.

Davis retired after the 2014 season but has been hinting at a comeback since August. According to NFL Network's Rand Getlin, Davis plans to return to the Niners. Erik Pears had a miserable year at right tackle in Davis' absence (57th out of 76 qualifiers in PFF's tackle grades).
Feb 26 - 2:08 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke reiterated at the NFL Combine that he has "no idea" if RT Anthony Davis will come out of retirement.

Davis indicated last offseason that he might only take one year off, but he's given the 49ers no signs he's intent on coming back. "I’ve had some contact with him," Baalke said, "but I have no idea what his status is at this point." Davis turned 26 last October. The 49ers still control Davis' rights.
Feb 25 - 11:59 AM

49ers GM Trent Baalke is unsure if RT Anthony Davis will come out of retirement.

When asked if Davis had filed for reinstatement, Baalke said, "As of right now, I've got no notification from the league to say that he has." Davis has hinted several times at a comeback, even going as far as to call it a "guarantee." Davis hung up his cleats last summer after five NFL seasons.
Jan 24 - 11:07 AM

Retired RT Anthony Davis is already talking about a comeback.

"When I return I'll be the best RT in the league again," Davis tweeted Tuesday. "Hands Down." Davis' "retirement" was never expected to be permanent, as he simply stepped away from the game to heal physically and mentally. But an offseason without minicamp and training camp is likely doing his body wonders. The 49ers hold Davis' contractual rights for whenever he returns.
Wed, Aug 12, 2015 12:04:00 PM

49ers placed RT Anthony Davis on the reserve/retired list.

25-year-old Davis' plan is to resume his career after "a year or so." He's left his team in a bind, following LG Mike Iupati's free agent departure and with a massive amount of turnover throughout the roster and coaching staff. When Davis is ready to play again, the 49ers will maintain his rights.
Mon, Jun 8, 2015 05:14:00 PM

"Retired" 49ers RT Anthony Davis tweeted Friday that he plans to return to football "in a year or so."

The Niners will maintain Davis' rights, and his contract will be "tolled" during his time away. "I'll be 26 or 27 years old," tweeted Davis, referring to his planned return to football. "I'm taking this time to allow my Brain and Body time to heal and recoup." Davis is currently under contract through 2019. He'll be under contract through 2020 after sitting out 2015.

49ers RT Anthony Davis announced his retirement from football for "a year or two."

Only 25 years old, Davis joins Chris Borland, Patrick Willis, and to a lesser extent Justin Smith in a string of unexpected 49ers retirements. A 2010 first-round pick, Davis was a mainstay at right tackle the last five seasons. He plans to "take a year or so away from the NFL," and left open the possibility of unretiring down the road. Losing Davis is a massive blow to a 49ers offensive line that lost Mike Iupati in free agency. Seventh-round pick Trent Brown, Bills castoff Erik Pears, and RG Alex Boone are candidates to take over at right tackle.
