SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Tight end Vernon Davis has reported to training camp with the San Francisco 49ers after sitting out the offseason program and mandatory minicamp hoping for a new contract.

Teammate C.J. Spillman posted video of Davis’ arrival in the locker room.

Right guard Alex Boone was still expected to be a no-show as he also seeks a deal with two years remaining on his contract, just like Davis. The 49ers, who lost in the NFC championship game to Seattle, hold their first full practice Thursday.

The 30-year-old Davis, who had 52 catches last season and matched his career high with 13 touchdowns, typically takes about a month off following the season before he starts training again full time. He said he worked out on his own, running hills in the area.
