San Francisco 49ers' offensive lineman Anthony Davis retires

June 5, 2015

The San Francisco 49ers roster has been dealt another unexpected loss, as the franchise announced today that offensive lineman Anthony Davis has informed the team he plans to retire from the National Football League.

“The 49ers organization thanks Anthony for his contributions to our team over the last five seasons and wishes him the best as he moves on from the game,” said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke.

Davis, 25, is the fourth player to retire from the team this past offseason.  Surprisingly, three of those players have been under the age of 30.

Originally the 11th overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, Davis has started all 71 games in which he has appeared, as well as eight postseason contests. He and his fellow 49ers offensive linemen were named the 2012 recipients of the Madden's Most Valuable Protectors Award, given annually to the NFL's top offensive line as selected by the Hall of Fame coach.
