Who knows how good the numbers could be of San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis if he had anyone remotely competent throwing the ball to him? Surely, he can’t wait for the Niners to be done with the Alex Smith’s and Troy Smith’s of the world.
His preference for next year? Washington Redskins QB Donovan McNabb.
“Oh, man, I’d love to catch passes from Donovan McNabb,” Davis says on the T.O. Ocho Show, which airs tonight on some network at some time.
Davis said that he looks forward to whatever quarterback the Niners get this offseason, “but having Donovan McNabb, that would be outstanding.”
It’s possible that he’ll get his wish. Jim Harbaugh will be running a West Coast offense that McNabb would be very familiar with. However, there will be several teams interested in his services. One would have to think that the Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans and maybe the Minnesota Vikings will kick McNabb’s tires.
