49ers Acquire Anquan Boldin From Ravens
BALTIMORE (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick.
Boldin, a star in Baltimore’s run to the Super Bowl title last season, must pass a physical to complete the deal. The Ravens announced the trade Monday.
Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers.
The 32-year-old Boldin had said he’d consider retirement rather than leave Baltimore. But going to the NFC champions might change his mind.
A 10-year veteran, Boldin led Baltimore with 65 catches for 921 yards and four TDs in 2012. He was sensational in the postseason with 16 receptions for 276 yards and three scores.
Boldin spent the first seven seasons of his NFL career with Arizona.
