BRONCOS ACQUIRE TWO-TIME PRO BOWL TIGHT END VERNON DAVIS FROM 49ERS

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Denver Broncos on Monday acquired two-time Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis from the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for future late-round draft pick considerations, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Davis (6-3, 250 pounds) is a 10th-year player and a two-time Pro Bowl selection (2009, ’13) who spent his first nine-plus NFL seasons with San Francisco totaling 441 receptions for 5,640 yards (12.8 avg.) with 55 touchdowns in 139 regular-season games (136 starts). Twice named a team captain for the 49ers, Davis’ postseason totals in eight career playoff starts include 27 catches for 600 yards (22.2 avg.) with seven touchdowns.

Selected by San Francisco in the first round (sixth overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft from the University of Maryland, Davis has started at least 14 games in eight of his nine NFL seasons while playing in all but five contests since 2007.

He earned his first career Pro Bowl selection following the 2009 season after posting career highs in receptions (78), receiving yards (965) and touchdowns (13). Davis turned in another Pro Bowl campaign in 2013 and was named a second-team All-Pro selection by the Associated Press after posting 52 catches for 850 yards (16.3 avg.) with 13 touchdowns for San Francisco.

Davis played 35 career games (17 starts) in three seasons at Maryland, where he totaled 83 receptions for 1,371 yards (16.5 avg.) with nine touchdowns. He was chosen a finalist for the Mackey Award (nation’s top tight end) and was a named a consensus All-American and All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection following his junior campaign after recording 51 catches for 871 yards (17.1 avg.) with six touchdowns.

A native of Washington D.C., Davis graduated from local Dunbar High School and was born on Jan. 31, 1984.
