Offensive lineman Anthony Davis, who abruptly retired last season, wants to play again. Davis was one of several San Francisco 49ers players, who retired following the 2014 season.
Now, he’s the first of that bunch who wants to come back to the game. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he will apply for reinstatement and wants to play in 2016.
If he does return, he’ll likely return with the 49ers. His five-year, $33 million deal was affected when he retired from the game.
Davis was supposed to make $1.8 million last season with a $1.6 signing bonus. He also had a $1.7 option bonus and a $437K roster bonus.
What happens to the remainder of his contract? We’ll have to see, as he was signed through the 2019 season.
He was supposed to get $2.65 million this season if he didn’t retire. He was also supposed to receive a $1.5 million signing bonus and a $1 million roster bonus.
Then, he would supposed to make $4 million in 2017, before $5.375 million in 2018 and 2019. He also was supposed to receive a $1.5 million signing bonus in 2017 and a $1 million roster bonus from 2017-2019.
Under Chip Kelly, he would have to hear his previous right tackle job back under Jim Harbaugh. Last season, under Jim Tomsula, Erik Pears was the right tackle.
Davis has been adamant that he wouldn’t return when fans would ask him on Twitter if he would return. But something had to change — possibly the millions — that he could only make in the NFL.
