There was potential drama around San Francisco star tight end Vernon Davis. He wanted a new contract, and the 49ers did not want to give him one. Davis threatened to not attend training camp, which would not play well with a team with Super Bowl aspirations.

But Davis showed up Wednesday, much to the relief of his teammates, especially his quarterback.

“Vernon’s a Pro Bowl tight end. He’s one of the best in the league,” quarterback Colin Kaepernick said. “There’s not going to be too much of a fall off for him. I don’t think anyone is concerned about that. We’re just happy he’s here. Vernon is not the type of person that’s going to walk out on his team like that. He’s a good guy. He’s done a lot for this organization and he’s made a lot of great plays for us.”

Davis wavered publicly often. Last month, he said it wouldn’t be “the end of the world” if he didn’t get a new deal.

An NFL source said Tuesday night that Davis was likely headed to camp because he didn’t want to incur a daily fine of $30,000 for missing training camp practices.
