SAN FRANCISCO, CA (The Spread) - Just when you thought Vernon Davis may not follow through with his contract holdout, a report surfaces to indicate otherwise.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk's Mike Florio that Davis will not report to training camp after he skipped the team's offseason workout program. The tight end recently suggested that he planned on attending camp later this month, but he also wants a new contract and skipping camp is his only leverage.

Of course, the Niners also have to worry about guard Alex Boone skipping camp in efforts to himself a new contract. If the team had to prioritize the two situations, it might be more willing to work with Boone than Davis, who is already set to make $4.7 million in 2014 and $4.35 million in 2015 before becoming a free agent in 2016. Boone will only cost the team $2 million in 2014 and $1.2 million in 2015 before he too becomes a free agent in 2016.

Davis seemingly doesn't have much leverage. He's already making good money and he's already acknowledged there's a good possibility that the team won't give him a new deal. The Niners can fine Davis $30,000 per day for missing training camp and once that money starts to pile up, it's likely the tight end will cave and report to camp. At 30 years old, he's not holding very good cards right now.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the 49ers are currently 7/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl. The only teams with better odds right now are the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, who are both 13/2, respectively, to win next year's NFL title.
