49ers trade for Anquan Boldin

Yes I think Manningham's days in the Bay are numbered unless they can find the money elsewhere. Too bad because I like Manningham....but like Boldin better! That guy has been a Niner's killer since day 1.

7.53 mil cap figure?

6 mil contract, I thought...

per ESPN...

The Ravens had reportedly asked Boldin to take a pay cut to help the team with its salary-cap situation. Boldin is scheduled to earn $6 million in the coming season. He carries a $7.531 million salary-cap figure.


The other 1.5 is probably signing bonus from the Ravens.

That's what I was thinking, or workout bonuses. I wonder what where on the hook for.

Crabtree and Boldin with VD as a deep threat in 2 sets and Manningham in 3 sets?


Nice. I like the Manningham match up vs team's #3 cb.

I don't think we can count on Manningham yet. Maybe, but ACL/MCLs are not easy (unless you're AP)


You're right...but then we have Kyle Williams who is solid too...maybe we don't get both back, but I think the injury gods will give us back at least one.

Great news, but we better be restructuring his contract

Not going to happen. That's why we only had to give a 6th rounder. Manningham will be cut, I bet.

Why would they do that??? Manningham was solid last year and once healthy, should be a compliment at WR. I can see us playing a lot of three wides next year, Crabby and Manningham out wide with Boldin in the slot. That's 3 solid veterans you have to account for, plus Vernon at TE...that creates some serious match-up problems for the defense.

I'm assuming 6.

didnt come cheap...maybe we rework his deal for 3 years

He can be cut at the end of the next season. I get the feeling that he's a short term acquisition to shore up the WR's.
Yeah, I didn't realize once Alex's contract is gone the cap is freed up to take on Boldin. Harbros doing business. I like it!

hell if AJ and Williams step it up im unloading gallons in my loins
WTF!
Otherwise, he replaces Moss and allows us to get a guy in the 3rd/4th rd. if needed. I say we'll get Robert Woods from USC and Josh cribbs in FA. Unless we find a way to keep Manningham. If we do that we'll probably just bring in Cribbs, and draft a developemental guy in the late rounds..
