The Seattle Seahawks have drafted well and with Russell Wilson at the helm have become NFC contenders. They almost made it to the NFC Championship game in Russell Wilson’s rookie season. Their biggest hurdle is the San Francisco 49ers, a team that has turned into a dynasty within their division.
Tight end Vernon Davis of those 49ers thinks their divisional foe is building a dynasty of their own.
“They’re building a dynasty over there,” Davis told NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington at the NFL Rookie Symposium in Ohio. “These guys are coming to take us out. I respect them, but we want to win, too. We have to … play each game like it’s our last game.”
Darlington also asked Davis about the time he’s spent practicing with the wide receivers in minicamp and OTAs. By expanding his role could reverse the trend of his numbers dipping the past 4 seasons.
“If coaches want to line me up there, we’ll see,” he said.
“I’ll do whatever the coaches ask me to do. If statistics come, it’s cool. But … My true identity is within the team. I never doubt myself. That’s how I live.”
