In the days before the start of the regular season a number of big-time players have received big-time contracts, and 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is the latest player to cash in.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Davis signed a five-year, $37 million contract extension with $23 million guaranteed, making him the highest-paid tight end in football.

Davis had one year left on his previous deal, which means he's now locked in with the 49ers through the 2016 season.

Despite getting off to a rocky start with coach Mike Singletary, Davis emerged last season as one of the league's best receiving tight ends, with 78 catches for 965 yards and 13 touchdowns. Now he's been handsomely rewarded.

A large part of the guaranteed money is actually a bonus to cover the therapy needed after seeing Mike Singletary's arse.

I think this is premature on the 49ers part, but more power to Davis.

Well, he changed his attitude and realized its not all about me me me me. Singletary embarrassed his ass on national tv. Maybe he looked back and realized i was a dick and i was being an ass. I doubt we see him regress.

His season last year wasn't just "good" he had an outstanding year. He's put it together and come into his own, the last thing they'd want is to lose a guy they invested a top 10 pick in right after he started playing like they thought he would.

The guy is a monster. He's a great in-line blocker and covering him down the seam is a nightmare for anyone because of his size, strength and above all speed.
