08:27 AM ET 06.30 | There's no doubt that San Francisco coaches are concerned about the absence of wide receiver Michael Crabtree (Achilles) from the passing game. But the suggestion that the Niners are considering moving Vernon Davis full-time to wide receiver, based on his extensive "reps" at the position in recent sessions, are overblown, the 49ers tell NFP. There are some new wrinkles planned for Davis, who can stretch the field like few tight ends and who possesses unique abilities, but he won't morph into a full-time wideout.

Never thought they would.

It's not like he isn't a threat at his current position.

They're gonna miss Crabtree. But someone just needs to "step up".

Anything else the 9ers aren't going to do?

I'd think Adderall would beat the top of the list.

Of course it is......this isn't Seattle.

At Stanford Jim Harbaugh liked to use 2 TE's. Now that they have this Rookie Vance McDonald who is big and fast. The 49ers will very likely use 2 TE's.

I wanted Davis converted to a WR after the 49ers drafted him, he was faster then. He was a bigger better clone of Terrell Owens so he might of had a chance of coming close to Owens career stats. Davis will be entering his 8th year as a pro, there is no way this late in his career that they would switch him. You can't teach an old dog new tricks.

I'm a good twenty miles from Seattle and even here we have Kellogs Adderall Flakes for breakfast.

The Niners might want to test their players for Adderall!!!! Just saying. :-)

Hey, what are you talking about??? :-)

Too bad. I was hoping they would move Davis to WR and Kapernacker whatshisname to guard.

June 30, 2013  11:34 AM ET

Expect Boldin to have a good year. Despite age, he still has a lot in his tank.

Aaaand 200 lazy members of the sports media just sited you as an anonymous source and concluded Tebow is coming to quarterback the Niners. Double threads are being prepared by the interns as we speak.

They also aren't going to trot out the cheerleaders naked and have them fondle each other. Doesn't make it news.

Hoodie spends about $100 mil wrapping up two really good TE's.

ATL agrees to pay Gonzales $14 mil guaranteed for a single season at TE.

Hardballs wants to take his really good TE and move him to WR.

Don't out coach yourself Jimmy.

The company that produces Adderall should be thanking the Seahawks for all the free advertising. I'd never heard of the stuff before Pete's Cheats started getting popped for using it.
