Anquan Boldin and the 49ers are working on a long-term contract, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. Wilson’s sources give the impression that an extension is likely, and the team would like to put the deal together prior to the start of free agency. Here are some other notes from around the NFC West:
- With Colt McCoy entering free agency, the 49ers have a question mark at backup quarterback, writes Bryan Knowles of Bleacher Report. While the easiest option would be to re-sign McCoy, Knowles lays out a few other players who could fill the void, including Josh McCown and Josh Freeman.
- The Rams are set up to have another huge draft haul thanks to the Robert Griffin III trade. Steven Gerwel of Bleacher Report put together a list of prospects the team will be looking at closely during the scouting combine next week.
- The Seahawks have three offensive lineman reaching free agency this offseason, but Brian Nemhauser of SeattlePI.com does not expect them to make a splash at the position this offseason. Instead, he sees the team looking to add some depth to the core they have in place.
