Arctic Ease announced that Vernon Davis, tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, has joined Team Arctic Ease. Davis will serve as a face of Arctic Ease in the professional football community as well as introduce Arctic Ease to millions of sports fans across the globe.
Arctic Ease products are a form of cold therapy that are odorless, menthol free and do not require any activation or pre-cooling. Arctic Ease is eco-friendly, made in the USA and ready to use right out of the reusable pouch. Unlike ice bags or frozen gel packs, Arctic Ease products eliminate the risk of frost bite or other skin or nerve injuries.
Carol Forden, president and CEO of Arctic said that “Arctic Ease is thrilled to have an athlete of the caliber of Vernon Davis joining Team Arctic Ease. Vernon is known as a leader on the 49ers team and a prominent top tight end in the game of football. Davis leads the NFL tight ends ranks presently with 26 touchdown receptions since 2009.”
“I understand firsthand the need for products that speed recovery and assist in getting athletes and weekend warriors back in the game. Arctic Ease allows me to keep my mobility while removing the pain and swelling from playing football at the professional level,” said Davis.
Forden stated, “Arctic Ease® is now working with the two leading tight ends in professional football; Davis joins Rob Gronkowski on Team Arctic Ease®. Rob is a leading tight end for the New England Patriots, who broke the NFL single-season record for touchdown receptions by a tight end on December 11th against the Washington Redskins. Rob now has 15 touchdowns with an average reception gain of 15.2 yards to date in the 2011 season.”
Davis was drafted in the 1st round (6th overall) of the 2006 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers. To date in the 2011 NFL season which was shortened by the lockout, Vernon has 55 receptions for 620 yards and 6 touchdowns; he has averaged 11.3 yards per catch. During the 2010 football season Davis finished with 56 catches and 914 yards, resulting in 16.3 yards per catch.
Davis joins his younger brother, Vontae, a former defensive back for the University of Illinois; Vontae Davis is a starting cornerback for the Miami Dolphins on Team Arctic Ease. Vontae Davis joined Team Arctic Ease® in August 2011.
