The 49ers are moving to Santa Clara. Tight End Vernon Davis is making sure that Jamba Juice will be making the move right along with the rest of the team.
Davis has signed a store development agreement with the Jamba Juice Company that looks to enhance the brand's presence in the Santa Clara marketplace. The multi-year deal will see Davis opening two new Jamba Juice stores in Santa Clara in the next two years, with an option to open additional locations in the subsequent two years. Under the deal, Davis has also purchased one of the existing Jamba Juice stores in the Santa Clara area.
Both parties are looking to provide Jamba's food and beverage products -- including fruit smoothies, juices and salads -- to the Santa Clara area, to promote wellness and healthy living.
"Playing football in California, I have become a huge fan of Jamba Juice products and the Company’s mission to help inspire and simplify healthy living," said Vernon Davis, athlete and entrepreneur. "I am very proud to be associated with a brand that is so committed to helping consumers keep fit and eat healthy. Jamba offers a great line-up of good-tasting, better-for-you products and they have a long history of supporting the community, and especially in addressing the health and wellness needs of children, which is very important to me."
"Vernon is an outstanding athlete and role model, one who serves as an inspiration for those seeking to achieve high levels of success in their personal or professional lives. He is committed to enabling people to lead healthier, more active lifestyles and to supporting the community," stated James D. White, chairman, president and CEO, Jamba Juice. "Vernon has brought the same level of commitment to this business partnership that he brings to his game, and we are excited to have him join Jamba in making healthier, better-for-you products available to everyone."
The health and well-being angle promoted by Jamba Juice seems to make them a popular franchise purchase among athletes, as it provides an additional revenue stream, and seemingly does nothing more but strengthen the brand of the active, natural lifestyle, of the healthy athlete. We recently saw Venus Williams sign a similar multi-year partnership with Jamba last July.

We mentioned earlier today that the San Francisco 49ers didn’t use the franchise tag on safety Dashon Goldson and that he’ll likely hit the free agent market.
49ers’ fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about him returing because ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that “Goldson’s going to be gone.”
Once again, with Goldson looking for $8 million per season, the 49ers won’t...
We suppose statistics are just that, but the odds of the San Francisco 49ers returning to the Super Bowl and winning are 4.34 percent. According to Eric Branch of sfgate.com, Super Bowl losers don't fare well in the following season after a trip to the big game.

According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson is looking to make $8 million per season once he hits the free agent market next week.
It continues to look like the 49ers aren’t willing to give Goldson the kind of money he’s asking for and I don’t see them using the franchise tag on him for a second straight season.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver got himself into some water during Super Bowl media day, when he made comments suggesting that he wouldn’t stand for a gay teammate in his lockerroom.
“I don’t do the gay guys man,” Culliver said. “I don’t do that. No, we don’t got no gay people on the team, they gotta get up out of here if they do.
“Can’t be with that...
A not so cryptic Tweet was sent out by Randy Moss which shows that his career in San Francisco is over, but will his time in the NFL also be over? We love the wide receiver, but would hate to see the big fella spend another year on in the NFL not being productive.
According to ESPN:
Moss had 28 receptions for 434 yards and three touchdowns in 2012 for the NFC champion 49ers. He...

1. QB Russell Wilson (Seattle): 3 years, 1.987 million remaining
You could make a case for Colin Kaepernick, Andrew Luck, and Robert Griffin here, but Luck and Griffin are making 3 times as much money as Wilson and Wilson has still two more years left on his deal before he becomes eligible for a monster extension, while Kaepernick will probably get...
