Vernon Davis: It’s not the end of the world if I don’t get a new contract


We mentioned that Vernon Davis has made it clear that he’s not stressed about his current hold out. It also sounds like he’s not worried if he doesn’t get a new deal right now.

“It’s not the end of the world if I don’t get it. If I get it, that’s good. It’s moving slowly, but surely. At the end of the day, if I don’t get the deal, at least I tried and I put my foot down. If I don’t get it at the moment, I’m not going to lose any sleep,” Davis said, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

It sounds to me like Davis’ hold out won’t last very long if he’s not really worried about getting new deal.  He also can’t afford to stage a very long hold out since he’ll be fined $30,000 for every day of training camp he misses.
