San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis believes that Russell Wilson is the best quarterback in the NFL outside of his teammate Colin Kaepernick.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis has expressed his belief that Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is the best signal caller in the game outside of Colin Kaepernick.

Wilson guided the Seahawks to victory over the 49ers in the NFC championship game and then defeated the Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Davis believes that the 25-year-old has all the attributes needed to be a top quarterback.

He wrote in his column on "I think among the 31 NFL quarterbacks who don't throw me passes, Russell Wilson is the best. He's got all the tools; he has the ability to keep the play alive, and he's very accurate with a strong arm.

"He exemplifies what it takes to be a winning QB in the NFL. If you asked me to choose based on record and experience, I'd take Tom Brady or Peyton Manning—but in terms of right now, my pick is Wilson."

Davis also admitted that he will be holding out of his side's off-season practices until he gets paid what he "deserves".
