On the BattleBots episode “We’re Gonna Need a Bigger Bracket: The Round of 32, Part 1,” NFL football player Vernon Davis is the guest judge. He will add commentary as 32 teams advance out of the qualifying round.
Vernon Davis played college football at Maryland before he was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers sixth overall in the 2006 NFL Draft. At that time, he signed a five-year, $23 million deal, making him the highest paid tight end. In 2015, he was traded to the Denver Broncos, who won Super Bowl 50 against the Carolina Panthers. In March 2016, the 32-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Washington Redskins, his hometown team. BattleBots airs Thursdays at 8pm on ABC.
