Former 49ers guard Joshua Garnett has a new homeby Kyle Posey on February 3, 2020 at 11:30 pm
Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/Getty Images The Detroit Lions signed Garnett on Monday In August of last year, Josh Garnett was trying to stay healthy and battle for a starting spot on the San Francisco 49ers offensive line. Garnett was released from the team before the regular season, and the former first-round pick never found a home during 2019. Garnett has a new team. On Monday, the Detroit Lions signed Garnett, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Hopefully, Detroit is a better scheme fit for Garnett, who never had a shot in Kyle Shanahan’s zone-blocking scheme. The 28th pick of the 2016 draft started 11 games during his rookie campaign, but injuries kept Garnett sidelined for the majority of 2017, and that bled into 2018. The Lions may lose their starting right guard, Graham Glasgow, in free agency, so Garnett is a good depth signing.

I hope he turns his career around like a former first-round pick when he was traded, Laken Tomlinson. The 49ers acquired Tomlinson for a fifth-round pick. Tomlinson has played over 1,000 snaps for San Francisco in the last three seasons. Health will be critical for Garnett. Perhaps a year off from football will help.
Former 49ers tight end Vernon Davis announces retirementby Patrick Holloway on February 3, 2020 at 10:02 pm
He will be remembered for The Catch III Update: Davis made it officially official. pic.twitter.com/DTDyS1kbrU— Vernon Davis (@VernonDavis85) February 3, 2020 Lost in all this Super Bowl hubbub is an announcement made by former San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis. In a very awkward move during a commercial, Davis made an announcement he is retiring from the NFL. Davis finished up his season in Washington, but his time with the 49ers will never be forgotten. Sure we all think of Davis and think of what I call The Catch: Gaiden (The Catch: Side Story) with his Vernon Post in the NFC Divisional, but Davis’ history goes further back. He was drafted by the 49ers sixth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft. His combine was ridiculous, and he was seen as the top tight end prospect. As time went on, Davis had some character concerns that brought headaches to the 49ers, the most notable being when he slapped a Seattle Seahawk player. Then-head coach Mike Singletary sent Davis to the locker room for the unsportsmanlike penalty, and it led to what has been a legacy rant for the 49ers head coach. From there, Davis became a threat in the league. Not only could he block when needed, but he was faster than several wide receivers. Davis was a part of the Vernon Post, which was a play that highlighted him and Alex Smith
