Today, 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis was rewarded for his efforts by the 49ers and was given a  five-year extension worth $37.295 million, with $17 million in guarantees. The contract will keep Davis in San Francisco through 2019, according to sources. Davis has started all 48 games in his career since being drafted 11th overall in the 2010 NFL draft. Now that the 49ers have rewarded Davis for his consistency, the first person that he had something to say to was his former head coach at Rutgers and current head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Greg Schiano. In a tweet that he later deleted, he took a shot at his former coach. The two had butted heads in the past during Davis’s time at Rutgers, specifically over Davis’s weight. Schiano went as far as to demote Davis to second string for not making weight.   “You will be a 1 contract and done kinda guy in the NFL. – Greg Schiano,” Davis wrote on Twitter. Whether Schiano actually said this to Davis or not, the progress that the offensive tackle made in his time at Rutgers was noticeable. Anthony Davis came into his freshman year at Rutgers at a surprising 363 pounds and left at a lean and powerful 323 pound stud who the 49ers took a chance at with the 11th overall pick. Other congratulations to Davis on twitter include his teammate, safety Donte Whitner, who said “Congrats to the homie @AnthonyDavis76 on signing that new deal! Hard work pays off!!!” and former teammate Randy Moss, who added “way to get Tht $$ homie!!!congrats” What do you think? Is Greg Schiano responsible for Anthony Davis’s success by whipping him into shape? Or is Davis justified in popping off towards his former coach?
