Golden Nuggets: Is Anthony Davis returning?

Friday, July 22nd, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis said he'll be back in California soon, which means ... well, basically nothing. He's said a lot of things that have turned out to either not be true or just as a joke. Personally, I seriously doubt he'll return to the NFL at this stage, and if he does return then I can't see him being anything but rusty and out of NFL shape.

In other words, he's not the savior of this offensive line. If he comes back, then great, but I wonder if the headaches his return will cause are even worth having at this point. The 49ers have to invest a lot in the offensive line going forward, whether Davis comes back or not. I certainly hope Erik Pears does not earn a starting job next season and hope Trent Brown can improve enough to earn the job.

Or maybe Davis will come back and be great and I'm stupid. Both possibilities are equally probable. Onto your links for the day.
