YES, good news
That's the same s**t that was said three weeks ago.
His resigning would ease a lot of my uneasiness. He's like piece of mind insurance.

Boldin is a must sing going into the 2014 season for a couple of reasons.

1. If the Niners want to win it all Boldin is a great leader to the team a classy veteran who can mentor Kap going forward
2. He is physical and with the Hawks CB we need a guy like him to get of the line in press coverage
3. Niners suffer on third down and red zone plays he makes a great third down option
4. Great route runner great hands and great attitude make him an essential part to Kaps growth

We had him this past season for three games against Seattle and could do next to nothing with him. I like Boldin, but we need to change our approach to force Seattle to adjust what they do defensively against us. If they had to keep two safeties deep for example to account for a speedy receiver on the outside, with Crabtree opposite, and Boldin in the slot, we can create some mismatches in the passing game and also create more space for our backs to run. Defenders would be fearful of crowding the line of scrimmage because they could potentially be giving up a big place.

It really bugs me when people say Michael Crabtree is just a possession receiver. At full health, he's actually not that easy to catch. He's a quick guy, not necessarily blazing fast but he's nowhere near the slowness of Anquan Boldin. I'm at an awe when I see Boldin make catch after catch out there because he literally looks like he's slower than Anthony Dixon playing WR....for yearrrs.

I agree with the first sentence. Michael Crabtree pretty much eats up most defensive backs in the league. We just need to utilize our personnel better to give us better matchups. With that said, our offense nearly pulled it off with a D- effort in Seattle in the NFCCG so despite all the doom and gloom predictions, we aren't that far off. I think my own frustration is that I look at Seattle and if we took advantage of what we had on the roster right now, I think we should beat those guys 7 games out of 10.
I'm looking for Patton to have a good second year. He should be open a lot with teams trying to cover Boldin and Crabtree. The question is how often will we use 3 WR's? He's pretty quick, too.

They have to use it more. That's why teams are always up and jumping routes b/c they so rarely use that when they do everybody knows what's coming. Run some pick plays like every other team in the league does to create some separation.
Sammy Watkins looks like another julio jones....special talent

What are you talking about, Boldin had close to 100 yards vs Seattle at home, that's where they were letting players play. Instead in Seattle, where they just let their CB's play.

8 for 93 at the stick, 5 for 53 and a td in the playoff game. he was only a non factor in that week 2 game. but thats the era we live in with fantasy football, if its not 11 catches for a 130 then ppl dont give a s**t, its pathetic really.
As soon as we resign him I'm going to buy his jersey. I love this guy
Are there any restrictions about when a player can be resigned?

At what point will we expect him to be resigned?

Hard to produce when in week 2 we had no run game, Crab or VD thus no field stretchers and SEA was blanketing Boldin because they knew he was the only option for Kap that game. Big difference with Crab and VD on the field over the next two games. We get another field stretcher then we can see what Q can do!
resign boldin 2 years 12 million. draft a potential #1 receiver this year, sign one veteran receiver in the offseason, let crabtree play out his contract while using all the pieces for next years attempt at #6. now we're protected incase he wants too much, sign iupati instead
