Anquan Boldin makes his 1,000th reception

Dec 27, 2015 at 10:05 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin made his 1,000th career reception during Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Only 12 other receivers in NFL history, led by former 49ers great Jerry Rice (1,549), have accomplished that.

It seems fitting that Boldin's milestone came in Detroit. His first NFL reception was on a 3rd-and-2 play in the first quarter of a Week 1 road matchup against the Detroit Lions on Sept. 7, 2003.


Congratulations to Boldin on his accomplishment. Boldin is scheduled to become a free agent after the season, but has expressed interest in returning to the 49ers.

"I like it here," Boldin said, via 49ers.com. "I like the people here. The organization has been great to me. I love my teammates. I enjoy them. And I have roots here, a lot of relationships that I've built in this community. When we cross that bridge, we'll cross that bridge. … No matter what age you are, you want to win a championship. That goes without saying. [But] it's deeper than that especially when you have been somewhere for a certain amount of years. You have roots."

Boldin is the leading receiver for the 49ers with 60 catches, 696 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

Mac Jones versus Justin Fields or Trey Lance. That is the big debate when it comes to the San Francisco 49ers and the 2021 NFL Draft. While the latter two names are more likely to excite the fanbase, there is a lot of speculation that the former might be the pick at No. 3 overall. One former 49ers defender, cornerback Richard Sherman, doesn't assume it will be Jones, though. He actually sees Fields as the perfect fit for San Francisco, assuming Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are taken with the first two selections. Cornerback Tre'Davious White, the most recent guest on the Cris Collinsworth Podcast, which Sherman co-hosts, also believes the 49ers will select Fields. It isn't easy to fathom that San Francisco surrendered multiple first-round picks and a



49ers' Kyle Shanahan respects Chris Simms' analysis but tells his friend nothing

NBC Sports analyst Chris Simms seems convinced that the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 spot to select quarterback Mac Jones. Of course, as is the case with many analysts, that is just an educated guess. However, it held more weight and created some chatter because of Simms' relationship with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. The two are close friends. Simms has admitted that he doesn't have any real insight into Shanahan's thinking regarding this year's draft. He knows how the coach has looked at the quarterback position in the past, which led Simms to his conclusion about Jones. "I think it's Mac Jones. I do," Simms said on PFT Live today. "I don't know
