SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Vernon Davis parted ways with an adviser before last season who had been pushing the 49ers tight end to get pushy for a new contract.
"I fired that person because he worships money," Davis said. "That's not what I worship."
Davis shared the story Friday as San Francisco's veterans reported to training camp ahead of Saturday night's opening practice at Levi's Stadium. He wanted to explain his absence during the offseason program last year before he reported to training camp on time.
