SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Tackle Anthony Davis, the 11th-overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2010, has told the team that he plans to retire.

The 49ers announced the move Friday. Davis hadn't been with the team during offseason workouts.

San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke thanked Davis in a statement for his contributions to the 49ers and said the team "wishes him the best as he moves on from the game."

The 25-year-old Davis had started all 71 games in which he had appeared, as well as eight playoff games.

He becomes the fourth 49ers player to retire this offseason, joining linebackers Patrick Willis and Chris Borland and defensive end Justin Smith.
