Saying he was "excited," then "super excited," then "extremely excited," Vernon Davis was an energetic guest on 104.3 FM The Fan Monday, mere minutes after the news broke that he was being traded to the Denver Broncos.
"All I could think about was Peyton Manning," Davis said. "That's all I could think about."
"It's just something about Peyton Manning," continued Davis. "I've always been a fan of his. I love the way he plays the game. His attitude. His approach. Everything about it is just pretty special to me, and it's rare to find a talent like him. It's just a beautiful opportunity to be a part of this with him."
Davis has been reportedly unhappy in San Francisco - some reports even claim he was among those calling for Colin Kaepernick to be benched - so a move to Denver appears to be a welcome one.
"I can blend in with anyone. I feel like, whatever (Manning) asks of me, I'll do it. Whatever he needs, I'll try my best to be there and help him with anything. Whatever he needs out of me, pretty much, I'm willing to put it all on the line."
Davis broke down how the trade went down from his perspective, as well as what drives him competitively and his desire to get back to the Super Bowl (which, coincidentally, will take place in San Francisco this year).
"It's extremely important for me to be able to get back there," Davis said of the Super Bowl. "And I feel like me being a part of the Denver Broncos organization and a part of this team makes that possible."
Work toward that goal begins for Davis on Tuesday, when he said he'll be arriving in Denver.
