49ers are playing hard ball with Vernon Davis and Alex Boone

According to Pro Football Talk, Vernon Davis is expected to hold out of camp until he lands a pay raise, but the Niners will keep a straight poker face.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that, at the present time, [Vernon] Davis would not be reporting. That doesn’t mean he won’t show; with nine days to go, Davis can change his mind and change it back again a few times or more before the time comes to report for duty.

The 49ers reportedly won’t negotiate with [Alex] Boone or Davis until they show up. If they boycott camp, the team will be able to fine them $30,000 per day and also to pursue a portion of any signing bonus money previously paid.

I like the Niners in this situation because they hold all the chess pieces. They will show up eventually, and if they don’t their pockets will hurt worse.
