SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Vernon Davis is taking his support skills to the curling ice once more.

The San Francisco 49ers tight end is scheduled to join U.S. Olympians Pete Fenson and Jessica Schultz for the Manhattan Curling Cup, an interactive event to be held at the Sky Rink in New York's Chelsea Piers neighborhood March 12.

Davis, who served as honorary captain at the 2014 and 2010 Olympics for the Americans, will help coach participants competing for Manhattan bragging rights and a traveling trophy.

Davis first tried curling in 2009 and has enjoyed his role helping build the sport.

Davis matched his career high with 13 touchdowns in 2013, then had a smaller role this past season and finished with just 26 catches and two TDs as the 49ers went 8-8 and missed the playoffs.
