Last Wednesday, I wrote a column explaining why Vernon Davis has leverage over the 49ers, and that he may choose to not attend this week’s mini-camp unless the 49ers renegotiate his contract first.
Today, Vernon Davis wrote a column for SI.com confirming that he is indeed holding out. “I’m playing at a higher level than I was then, which brings me to why I’m holding out,” Davis wrote. “It’s all about getting paid what you deserve. It’s not that complicated. I want the 49ers to win the Super Bowl, and I want to be on the field this summer working toward that goal, but I have to worry about my future first.”
Stay tuned. We will see what happens at mini-camp tomorrow.
