Despite his saving the team last season, I wouldn't be so quick to resign him. The FO's object should be to target beating Seattle, even in Seattle. That will require speed, and much more of it. Boldin was neutralized in both Niners' games in Seattle (as was VD and Crabtree). Those three are good enough to beat lesser teams, but the Super Bowl now goes through Seattle.
Whoa. One game won't ever define one player's capabilities to perform.
With that being said, and what Boldin did for us this season, there's no doubt in my mind we need him back for the regular season + another game in/against Seattle. You are correct in saying we need speed, but we can't give up a game-changer like him to acquire one. The dude is big-time, a momentum-starter for sure.
