49ers’ TE Vernon Davis: I’d love to catch passes from Donovan McNabb

So it looks Terrell Owens is creating news again. Only this time, it’s not about him.

On Owens’ reality show T.Ocho – described as a “satirical discussion show” co-hosted with Cincinnati Bengals receiver Chad Ochocinco – he asked current 49ers tight end Vernon Davis (a Washington, D.C. native) about the prospects of catching passes thrown by current Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb.


“Oh man, I’d love to catch some passes from Donovan McNabb,” Davis said. I saw some of the things he did with [Owens] when [Owens] was playing with him. He did a great job getting [Owens] the ball.”

The question, of course, was based on the premise that McNabb could either be released or traded by the Redskins this offseason (he is still under contract with the Redskins, after signing a five year extension during the 2010 season). McNabb’s agent, Fletcher Smith, said in a statement that he and McNabb no longer trust head coach Mike Shanahan, and that McNabb would not want to remain in Washington under “the current circumstances.”

This has lead to speculation that certain teams – including the 49ers, Vikings, and Cardinals – could be interested in acquiring McNabb, should he become available.

Whether McNabb ends up in San Francisco will likely be up to new 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, a former NFL quarterback himself. Like the Redskins, the 49ers are a team with many established veterans in key positions, and could easily contend for the playoffs due to the fact that they play in a very weak NFC West.
