Vernon Davis the tight end could soon be Vernon Davis the wide receiver. He played exclusively at wide receiver during the 49ers’ most recent minicamp. With Michael Crabtree sidelined for at least six months, the 49ers don’t have many options.
Randy Moss arrived at the New England Patriots five years ago thinking he knew a lot about football.
In the past, fans have seen Moss flourish when he was in a situation that he liked, and the added contract incentives should push him even more. He also won’t be going against many elite passing defenses, so there aren’t a lot of chances to bottle him up in 2012.
Michael Crabtree smiled, took a breath and tried to explain how his latest injury happened. After a few silent seconds, the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver finally gave up.
