Broncos Make Deal for 49’ers Tight End Vernon Davis

Seattle Seahawks v San Francisco 49ers

The Broncos are very much ‘all in’ for 2015, as the team Monday made a deal with the San Francisco 49’ers for tight end Vernon Davis, who could become a valuable weapon in the Denver offense.

The teams will swap late-round picks in 2016 and San Francisco will receive the Broncos’ sixth-round pick in 2017.

GM and Executive VP John Elway tweeted out the following about the addition of Davis: “(Davis will) be a valuable addition to our team with his experience and leadership,” Elway wrote on Twitter.

“He’s a huge weapon for our offense,” Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall told NFL Network’s Andrew Siciliano on Monday’s edition of Around The NFL.

“The guy’s a speed demon. He’s a mismatch for linebackers and safeties, so he’s going to help us out tremendously. … I think he’ll fit right in to the chemistry that we have, definitely.”

Davis is in the last year of his deal with the Niners, a team clearly in rebuilding mode. This season he has just 18 catches for 194 yards and no touchdowns.

His best season came in 2009 when he had 78 catches for 965 yards and 13 touchdowns.
