Mutual Interest Between Patriots, Boldin

Anquan Boldin retired from football this summer and he swears that he is retired for good. However, there was mutual interest between the wide receiver and the Patriots in the wake of Julian Edelman‘s injury, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe hears. Anquan Boldin

It doesn’t sound like there’s anything brewing between the two sides at the moment, particularly since the Bills continue to hold his rights after placing him on the reserve/retired list. It’s hard to see a scenario in which the Bills cut Boldin loose to sign with a divisional rival, particularly since his retirement left them high and dry after trading Sammy Watkins to Los Angeles.

Boldin turns 37 in October, but he showed last year that he can still be productive. Boldin joining up with the Patriots seems unlikely, but his itch to play is worth keeping in mind as the season goes on.

    Did the bills just outright release him? Didn’t put him on a retired list?

      I should read the article first. But the article title leads to the idea of tampering doesn’t it?

    Pats should trade Buffalo a 6th rounder or something. He’d be a good add.

    Beane doesn’t care about the past with NE. He rebuilding and seems smart. He’ll gladly take a draft pick for him
