Wow! Vernon Davis is really showing his softer side. The San Francisco 49ers tight end— who was last seen tearing up on the sidelines at Candlestick Park on Saturday— got in front of a microphone and belted out Adele's hit love song, "Someone Like You," for a local web-cam show.

The English singer-songwriter's weeper is a resignation to a lost love and contains the lyrics: "I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited" and "I am bound by surprise by your glory days."

Not exactly bulletin board material for the New York Giants— as they prepare to meet the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday— but probably enough for a good laugh.

Davis was coaxed into belting out his off-key version of the song on "The Joe Show," an online comedy web show on 49ers.com.

Davis caught the last second TD pass that beat the New Orleans Saints, 36-32, last weekend and sent San Francisco into the championship game. After his game-winner, he had tears of joy running down his face as he was hugged by teammates.

The sensitive side of Davis is quite a reversal from the young player who was pulled from the midst of a game for insubordination by head coach Mike Singletary only a few years ago.

When Davis sang the words," I wish nothing but the best for you," I'll bet they weren't for Justin Tuck or Jason Pierre-Paul.
