49ers make ex-Terp Davis highest-paid tight end

Vernon Davis is now the highest-paid tight end in NFL history. The former Maryland star signed a five-year extension with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday. A person familiar with the contract told the Associated Press that Davis will get $37 million overall, with $34 million guaranteed. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract details were not released. The contract is worth $3 million more in guaranteed money than the San Diego Chargers' Antonio Gates received. Davis, entering his fifth NFL season, led the 49ers with 78 catches last year for 965 yards and 13 touchdowns, which tied Gates' NFL mark for the position. Davis made his first Pro Bowl in 2009 and tied for the league lead in touchdown catches with Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald. Overall, Davis has 181 receptions for 2,097 yards and 22 touchdowns in his career.
