Boldin Taking Time On Free Agent Decision

Anquan Boldin is still without a team in mid-April, but he’s not in a particular rush to sign, as Jamey Eisenberg of writes. Anquan Boldin

I’m taking my time right now,” Boldin said. “It’s the first time in 13 years I’ve been a free agent, so I get to pick where I want to go now. I’m definitely going to take my time and make the best decision for me and my family.”

Boldin, 35, is working out in South Florida and staying in shape as he waits for the right opportunity. Even though he has enjoyed a long career and even has a Super Bowl ring, the veteran says that he is not thinking about retirement. Last season, Boldin recorded only 69 catches for 789 yards and four touchdowns, so he’s probably looking to go out with a stronger campaign. Boldin’s struggles, in large part, can be attributed to the turmoil surrounding the 49ers and their difficulties at quarterback.

Boldin made his first free agent visit a little over two weeks ago when he met with Washington. However, the wide receiver says that he is hoping to sign with a team that can win the Super Bowl and Washington isn’t exactly a leading contender.

After joining the 49ers in 2013, the former second-round pick posted consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, with 12 total touchdowns in ’13 and ’14. Over the course of his career, Boldin has made three Pro Bowls while racking up 13,195 yards off of 1,009 catches with 74 touchdowns.

    He’s a consistent WR and is clutch. Hate to see him go but don’t blame him or anyone else for leaving sucks for us fans that nobody wants to play for our team but hopefully one day we can build a championship team again. Don’t think it’ll happen with control freak Baalke but I could be wrong


      The York family is responsible, not Balke. When the Yorks received the team from debartalo, it became their only source of income. Debartalo kept all other family business and the Yorks are now using the team to maintain a lifestyle they are no longer capable of. The 49ers team is no longer about winning, instead it is now a source of income. Until the Yorks are run out of town we are stuck with the miserable situation.

        I do agree about York but I think they both need to go

  2. Come join us in det! We aren’t really ready for a super bowl either but we’ve got one of your favorite coaches and a decent team.

  3. I don’t blame him if he want to play for a playoff team. He doesn’t have much time left. Even if he doesn’t come back he still had one heck of a career. Guys like him show you speed not every. All you need is smarts and great hands

    I’d love to see him come back to the Ravens, but I don’t see the fight with all of the WR’s we have already.

    Come play in KC, you and your family would be very welcome in the”CHIEFS KINGDOM ” !!! We’re a Super Contender and will be for a long time. With you, Jeremy, Travis, Streater and our “Explosive Back field” not to forget Alex Smith and our “Kick Ass Defense” you wouldn’t be sorry!!! Please consider!!!

    In my opinion Boldin would be an upgrade over Brandon LaFell for the Bengals. I’d be happy if they are able to sign him. Although the last time we signed an aging WR it was Terrell Owens and that didn’t work out great, so I’m not holding my breath.
