TE Vernon Davis Skipping OTA’s Over Contract

San Francisco 49ers v Arizona Cardinals

49ers tight end Vernon Davis is skipping OTAs this week due to “dissatisfaction with his contract according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

Davis, who is signed through 2015, is putting his money where his mouth is, as he’s forfeiting a $200,000 workout bonus. Davis signed a six-year, $42.705 million deal he signed with the team in 2010.

Now 30, the pseudo-holdout will likely be in vain for Davis, who is owed a combined $9.05 million over the next two seasons.

The 49ers have far more important contract issues to worry about with Colin Kaepernick, Aldon Smith, Michael Crabtree and coach Jim Harbaugh. It’s unclear if Davis is planning to blow off next month’s mandatory minicamp.
