Vernon Davis announces retirement in Super Bowl pregame skit with Rob Gronkowski, James Harrison

Vernon Davis announces retirment 2/2/2020

NFL tight end Vernon Davis announced his retirement from professional football on Sunday.

The news was a bit of a surprise, but the way Davis decided to make his announcement was even more surprising. He revealed the news in a title sequence to a "Golden Girls"-type sketch with Rob Gronkowski and James Harrison during the FOX Super Bowl pregame festivities.

At the beginning of the sketch, which only lasts for about a minute, Gronkowski introduces Harrison and Davis as part of his "retirement crew". When Davis is introduced, he says "That's right. I'm retiring."

The rest of the skit is pretty silly, with the highlight being Harrison pushing Gronkowski into a pool.

Davis was a member of the Washington Redskins for the last four seasons, but missed most of last season with a concussion. He is best known for his time with the San Francisco 49ers, where he spent nine-and-a-half seasons. He also played for the Denver Broncos for nine games during the 2015 season.

We wish Davis well in his retirement.
