49ers trade for Anquan Boldin

Either way, those two Seattle games are going to be huge.
I see this trade as Baltimore's thank you note for giving them the Super Bowl.

meh. Boldin is a warrior. Moss never was.
BOOM BABY! BOOM!
Niners hit a home run!
TorreySmithRT @RavensInsider: Anquan Boldin traded to 49ers for a sixth-round pick....WHAT!!!

He is definitely worth a 6th. But I've been saying this, and I'll say it again, he is just an older version of Michael Crabtree. However, it's better to have two Michael Crabtrees than one Crabtree and nothing else.

According to @PFF Boldin had the lowest drop rate in the NFL at 2.99%. Next closest? Roddy White at 4.17% #Hands #Value #49ers

BOOM! Great Stat!

+ Mr. Hands (i.e. Crabtree)
even for one or two years this is a great 6th round draft pick!!
Great Blocker also.......

Now it's up to San Francisco to counter, and this just in: The 49ers on Monday acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from Baltimore, a guy who helped beat them in Super Bowl XLVII. What's more, they have five of the first 93 choices in this year's draft and 14 overall, including three expected compensatory choices. That gives them the freedom to respond to Seattle, with speculation centered on New York Jets' cornerback Darrelle Revis.

All I know is that Seattle and San Francisco seem to be positioning themselves for a two-team race ... and I'm not talking about the NFC West. I'm talking about the NFC, period."

Probably what it would have been even without these two trades.

Where did you hear he was willing to restructure? Man, the news keeps getting better and better.
Does this mean Kaepernick can toss up rainbow floaters now?

I doubt they were going to make any big signings in the first place. With the Alex trade, the release of Akers, and whoever else they let go, they'll have plenty of cap space to add in a couple lower-mid tier free agents that are left after the vultures raid the market.

Plus, you can make any signing work if you want it to. Not that they're going to make a big splash in free agency, but if they wanted to, they can be pretty creative nowadays on how to assign a low first-year cap # to a big contract.

Exactly. Boldin is a beast who gives everything he has every second he's on the field. He fights for every reception. We've seen enough of that throughout his years with Arizona.
haha seemed like every week we were playing in primetime last year, im sure it will be much of the same again, i can see niners vs seahawks SNF for sure on the schedule
