Morning Tailgate: Feb. 17

Posted by Taylor Price on February 17, 2012 – 10:42 AM

Washington D.C. native Vernon Davis continues to diversify his off the field portfolio in the months between February and August.

On Thursday, Davis had a chance to speak at the same event as President Barack Obama at the Nob Hill Masonic Center in San Francisco.

In town to raise funds for his re-election campaign, Obama spoke to an audience of his Bay Area backers at an event that had a performance from singer Chris Cornell as well as speeches preceding Obama, one of which was given by Davis, the 49ers tight end.

More on Davis’ unique experience and other 49ers-related headlines after the jump.

CBS-5 of San Francisco was there to talk to Davis after the event in which the 49ers standout raved about the President. Davis compared Obama to his grandmother, who raised him in Washington D.C.

Davis shared photos and insight on his Twitter account, too.

As for potentially adding passing targets to support Davis and fellow 49ers receivers, SFGate.com’s Kevin Lynch highlights the thoughts of ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay and NFL Network’s Mike Mayock who both discussed the 49ers options at the position in their respective pre-combine conference calls.

Lastly, the new stadium make-ready work around 49ers headquarters was highlighted this morning on 49ers.com. Project executive Jack Hill tours the latest construction work and told TV49’s Scott Kegley, “The sooner they can get through the utility work (around headquarters and at the stadium site), the sooner they can lay the foundation for the new stadium.”


Davis shares a photo from where he delivered a short speech prior to the President.
