Darnell Dockett says he believes the San Francisco 49ers will keep winning despite the team undergoing significant roster turnover this offseason.

Offensive tackle Anthony Davis indicated last week that he will take at least one year off from football. Davis is the latest 49ers player this offseason to say that he won't be back with the team in 2015. Earlier this offseason, linebackers Chris Borland and Patrick Willis, and defensive tackle Justin Smith announced they would retire.

In December, the 49ers mutually parted ways with Jim Harbaugh, who later took over as Michigan's head coach. San Francisco in January promoted former defensive line coach Jim Tomsula to replace Harbaugh.

Dockett signed a two-year deal with the 49ers in March. He spent the previous 11 seasons of his career with the Arizona Cardinals, earning three invitations to the Pro Bowl.

The 34-year-old missed all of last season while recovering from a torn ACL.
