Vernon Davis Calls Out Crabtree, Gets Into Fight at Training Camp
Mike Singletary’s been the coach of the 49ers for under a year, but his short tenure hasn’t kept us from seeing how he feels about tight end Vernon Davis. Last year Singletary banished Davis from the field after Vernon committed a stupid penalty causing Singletary to vent after the game. Vernon apparently was up to no good again, getting into a fight at training camp Saturday. Singletary punished the entire team by forcing all the players to run gassers to the point that one player passed out. As if a fourth-year player like Vernon acting immaturely isn’t enough, now he’s telling people how to handle their financial business off the field.
Talking about first-round pick Michael Crabtree who has yet to sign with the 49ers, Davis had this to say, “He needs to get his butt here and help this team out. He has a chance to be a big-time player. He should take what he can get and get here.” As a former first-round pick himself, you would figure Davis could understand Crabtree’s situation. If Crabtree is to take Vernon’s advice and take what he can get, would Davis be willing to share part of his salary with Michael to make up for it? Davis should keep himself out of it and keep his mouth shut instead of sticking his nose in business where it doesn’t belong.
