WOW! Good trade. I had hoped he would end up here.
Any word yet on his reaction??
Like this more than tendering a 1st for Victor Cruz. Given the landscape (and pay) for top wideouts this off-season the $6 million price tag seems like a good value. Not saying Boldin is quite that level but nonetheless represents good value. Also, given the Seahawks physical style we need to bring in a guy who can play that type of game and Boldin fits.

Now, if either Jenkins or Lockette turn into a speed burning stretch the field kind of player, the Niners have a very potent receiving corp. Also, both Boldin and Crabtree are so adept at mid-range catches that this might make it easier for Davis to slip by into the longer range routes. Very nice. And now, they can just concentrate all their assets on rebuilding and strengthening the defense through the draft.
I am good with this. Even if he is a one year rental, he is a good receiver and fights for the ball. I was just listening to a comment on the radio that the Niners were second place in the Harvin trade. Once the Seahags worked out the deal for Harvin, it appears the trigger on Boldin was pulled. I have always liked Boldin and I am glad he is coming, but I wish we could have had Harvin rather than Seattle. If the Hags didn't get him, I wouldn't care much, but they did and I had no idea Baalke would be in the race for him. Nice to see us active where we need it though.
