49ers’ RG/RT Anthony Davis Retires Yet Again


According to reports, 49ers’ RG/RT Anthony Davis has retired again. Davis retired at the end of the 2014 season, saying he wanted to take a year off to become one of the best guards in the league.

A year later, after receiving minimal playing time and being limited by injury in three games, Davis has retired again. This time, he wants to make sure he still has his “time and mind”.

Davis suffered a concussion after the 49ers’ week 1 win over the Los Angeles Rams. He never really found any rhythm this season, as he was only used in the final snaps of what was a blowout game. The switch from tackle to guard left him with doubts, and eventually he wanted to switch back. It may have never been the right move.

Unfortunately, with the emergence of RT Trenton Brown, there wasn’t much use for Davis at that position. With his injuries piling up and his role diminishing, he decided to retire. If he wanted to play and start, he likely would have just stayed at right guard.
