Gerald McCoy suspects 49ers are going to be investigated

There is something bizarre going on within the San Francisco 49ers organization, and Gerald McCoy is very suspicious.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle tried to make sense of all the 49ers retiring this offseason and tweeted that he thinks the team is going to be investigated.

Anthony Davis 49ersMcCoy’s tweet comes on the heels of 49ers offensive lineman Anthony Davis announcing Friday that he will take a year or two away from the game before considering returning to the league. Davis wants to give his brain and body a chance to heal after the beating he’s been taking.

If you look at Davis stepping away to the game on its own it could make some sense, though it still would be surprising. But when you view it in the context of all the Niners’ retirements this offseason, it makes you question what is happening.

In addition to Davis, youngster Chris Borland surprisingly retired, while veterans Patrick Willis and Justin Smith called it careers. Willis and Smith were aging players who had to hang it up eventually, though few saw Willis’ retirement coming. And nobody saw it coming with Borland.

Rather than being suspicious about what is happening with the Niners, maybe we should be pleased that so many players are retiring earlier rather than later since it means they are keeping their long-term health in mind.
