Vernon Davis is giving away money in hopes of securing more financial security. CSN Bay Area is reporting that Davis is skipping 49ers OTAs in hopes of landing a new deal.
Davis, who has two years remaining on a lucrative deal he signed before the 2010 season opener, is remaining away from the 49ers’ organized workout program due to dissatisfaction with his contract, a source indicated to CSNBayArea.com.
Neither Davis nor his agent, Todd France, responded to a request for comment on Davis’ absence from the official offseason program.
When 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh was asked Wednesday why Davis has not been attending workouts at the team’s Santa Clara practice facility, he answered, “As you know, the workouts are voluntary. That would be the reason.”
We reported on Wednesday, that Davis forfeited a $200,ooo workout bonus by not showing up, voluntary or not. Davis signed a five-year extension in 2010 that included a $10 million signing bonus and averages $7.35 million annually through the 2015 season.
