First it was Alex Boone, now Vernon Davis wants a new contract

I truly feel bad for the San Francisco 49ers, because they are going to implode in 2015.  They might be the favorites to win the Super Bowl in 2014, but they are going to have major issues on their hands.  

They have 25 free agents in 2015, and with guys like Colin Kaepernick, Aldon Smith, and Mike Iupati still not being signed, the team is going to have a very hard time with their roster.  A few days ago, Alex Boone stated he wants a new contract, and he is not the only player that wants more money.

Tight end Vernon Davis has also been absent from the team’s practices this week and Matt Maiocco of reports that it is also related to his contract.

According to Maiocco, Davis is trying to leverage his absence into a new deal with the team and is apparently willing to forego his $200,000 workout bonus in order to press the issue. Davis has two years left on the six-year, $42.705 million deal he signed with the team in 2010 and is due $9.05 million over that span.

The Niners better win this year, because it might be the last year with this solid roster, they will be able to pull it off.
