San Francisco 49ers Bring In Leonard Davis For Visit

When the Detroit Lions signed offensive guard Leonard Davis in the middle of last season, it wasn't initially clear what the motive behind the move was. Were the Lions going to replace Stephen Peterman? Was Davis being groomed as a future replacement for one of the starters? Or were the Lions simply kicking the tires on a veteran player?

It appears the last of those theories turned out to be the case. Davis never suited up for the Lions in 2011, and right now it does not appear that he is going to re-sign with them. Instead, he may end up heading west to play for the San Francisco 49ers.

Veteran guard Leonard Davis, an 11-year veteran, who did not play any games last season after signing with the Detroit Lions midway through the season, is scheduled to visit the 49ers Wednesday, a league source told CSNBayArea.com

While Davis may not have played for the Lions, they were able to get a look at him for a decent portion of the season. Also, the thinking in many circles is that his presence helped push Peterman to play at a higher level since there was actually some competition at right guard. If for nothing else, the move to sign Davis was a good one if that really was the case.
