Anthony Davis' year off from the 49ers has been revealing, as the pro tackle has discussed the NFL and San Francisco organization on social media.
And even while hinting at a return, he's not hesitated to call out teammates for their performance on the field.
It continued this weekend.
During the NFC Wild Card round on Saturday, Davis was asked a serious question and responded with perhaps his most telling answer yet.
When asked if he wished Jim Harbaugh was still the coach of the 49ers, Davis replied:
Davis, while away from the 49ers, has continued to insist that he'll return to the team.
Earlier this season, Davis posted a photo of himself on Instagram in a 49ers home uniform with the message: 'Keep that spot warm for ya boy..'
After Jim Tomsula was relieved of his duties following the season finale, the offensive lineman updated fans, saying it was 'guaranteed' that he would return.
Davis, 26, was a former first-round pick by the 49ers. The team traded up two spots to select the Rutgers product No. 11 overall in 2010.
He started 71 games from 2010-2014.
After being relieved of his duties following the 2014 season, Harbaugh accepted the head coaching position at Michigan. He led the Wolverines to a 10-3 record and a victory over Florida in the Citrus Bowl in his first year.
