49ers Still Giving TE Vernon Davis Reps At Wide Receiver
The San Francisco 49ers continue to give Vernon Davis looks at wide receiver.
Davis has played tight end exclusively since coming into the NFL in 2006, but the 49ers could be looking to improvise with Michael Crabtree on the shelf after Achilles tendon surgery and three other wideouts hurting. Davis worked with the receivers during minicamp, and he also has done so at the start of training camp.
"I'm willing to step up and do whatever they ask me to do," Davis said Sunday, via The Associated Press. "They've been having me line up at wide receiver, pretty much all over the place. It's a good thing that I get the opportunity to work with those guys because it not only helps me at the wide receiver position, it also helps me at the tight end position. My feet get quicker, my route-running is better."
It makes sense to find ways to take advantage of Davis. He's arguably the most explosive player on the 49ers' offense.
