Broncos import Vernon Davis says he's got to get used to winning again
On the eve of Tuesday's NFL trading deadline, the San Francisco 49ers (2-6) traded tight end Vernon Davis to greener pastures with the undefeated Denver Broncos (7-0).
"I know what it feels like to win and to be on a team that has that winning spirit," Davis told Broncos TV's Phil Milani. "Not too long ago we were able to win some games, and I still feel that, I can feel it a little bit. But I just have to get acclimated to it again because it seems like it's been so long. But I can imagine that it's intense, it's exciting, everyone is playing together as one, and there's a lot of love."
In San Francisco, there was less love and more war. Kaepernick has been "on an island" in the locker room per Jay Glazer and reports emerged that Davis was at the center of two quarrels with lineman Joe Staley about the QB.
"I'm very familiar with Peyton Manning," Davis said, "but I've never been around a quarterback like him. I'm not knocking the quarterbacks I've had in previous years . . . I've looked at him as one of the best to ever play. I've never been around that."
