Five-time All Pro inside linebacker Patrick Willis may return to 49ers in 2016, according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report. Check out Cole’s report below.
Here’s what Cole said: “They need a shot in the arm, and they may get a couple this coming offseason. Patrick Willis, I talked to a source last night — Patrick Willis is considering a comeback. Now, he’s not definitely going to do it. He’s still dealing with a toe issue that knocked him out for his career this last offseason. However, he is considering coming back. We’ll see how he’s able to respond after one year away from the game.
“The other one is Anthony Davis, their star right tackle from last year, has decided to come back. He is definitely going to return to the team — as of now. Obviously, plans can change. But, he had concussion issues he was dealing with. He is now set to return.”
Do you think Davis will change his mind between now and next season? Why or why not?
And do you think Willis will return to the team? Why or why not?
UPDATE: Willis just issued a response via Instagram:
