Description: San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis has reported to training camp, according to Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com.
Insight: Davis missed OTAs and minicamp because he wants a new contract, but San Francisco doesn't want to give him one and he really doesn't have any leverage. Davis had 52 receptions, 850 yards and 13 touchdowns in 15 games last season and comes with a fifth-round ADP.

Insight: The two-time Pro Bowler won't hit free agency until 2016 but after seeing Colin Kaepernick's new deal, he feels he deserves a raise. Only time will tell if the 49ers feel the same way.
