Anquan Boldin traded to 49ers for a 6th-round pick

Mar 11, 2013 at 1:11 PM--




Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun has reported that the Baltimore Ravens have traded Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth-round pick.

Boldin, who was drafted in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft, has played seven seasons with the Arizona Cardinals and the past three seasons with the Ravens. Last season, he had 65 catches for 921 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Boldin may be a solid compliment to wide receiver Michael Crabtree and yet another target for your quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Boldin is 1 of 17 players in NFL history with at least 10,000 yards receiving in his 1st 10 seasons.

Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports spoke to Ray Rice on Monday morning. Rice said that outside of quarterback Joe Flacco, Boldin might have been the team's MVP last season.

Regarding the trade, Kaepernick told Trey Wingo on NFL Live, "If that's a true statement and that's going to happen, that's another great weapon for our offense, another great weapon for our team, and he'd be a great contributor." He went on to say, "We have great receivers already, but he's another great addition. I think everybody saw what he's capable of this past year, what he did in the Super Bowl, so that's just another playmaker on our team."

Boldin will be 33 years old in October. Last month, he said that, rather than playing for another team, he would retire if the Ravens were to release him.

Boldin is scheduled to make $6 million in 2013, the final season of the four-year, $28 million deal he signed with the Ravens in 2010.

Analyst calls the idea that the 49ers traded up for Mac Jones 'a punch to the stomach'

Longtime draft analyst Matt Miller is convinced that the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, and he doesn't sound too happy about it. He grew up as a Niners fan, and the idea that his favorite NFL team might select Jones over a prospect like Justin Fields of Ohio State disturbs him on two fronts—as a fan and an analyst. "As a lifelong Niners fan, that's such a punch to the stomach," Miller said on the Dan Patrick Show. "I'm trying to trust (general manager) John Lynch and (head coach) Kyle Shanahan, but I remember when they said they didn't need a quarterback and they passed on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson only to pick up C.J. Beathard in the third round. "I'm still a little gun-shy about

Breer: It would take a 1st-round pick for the 49ers to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo right now

There is no sense of urgency from the San Francisco 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo. In fact, the quarterback fits nicely into the team's plans for the upcoming season, even after general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan pulled the trigger on moving up in the draft to secure a quarterback of the future. The 49ers are built to win right now. They believe they have a championship-caliber roster in place and that last season's six-win campaign was an abnormality due almost entirely to a historic number of injuries. If you feel you can compete for a Super Bowl, why would you supplant a veteran quarterback who knows the playbook and system for a



Another report surfaces that 49ers seek a 1st-round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo

A second report stating that the San Francisco 49ers seek a first-round pick to consider trading Jimmy Garoppolo has surfaced. That means the team has no real desire to part ways with the quarterback despite making a move last week to draft his successor. San Francisco seeks to keep Garoppolo around for this season, allowing the team to ease a rookie into the playbook and offense. On Wednesday, Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated reported that it would take a first-round pick for the 49ers to consider altering their plan for the upcoming season. "I was told that, yes, it'd take a first-round pick for the Niners to listen at this point," Breer wrote, "which
