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.

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



Simms doubts 49ers' decision to draft Trey Lance: 'I'm not sold on his potential'

The San Francisco 49ers' second-year quarterback, Trey Lance, has been the target of much scrutiny this offseason. A lot of it seems based on the team's decision to hold onto veteran Jimmy Garoppolo without fully considering why. Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster because no one has made a trade offer, not necessarily because the coaches doubt Lance's readiness. Of course, that could be speculation too. However, it's based on the narrative the 49ers have laid out and not the narrative created by the national media. Speaking of national media, Chris Simms of NBC Sports created some chatter after ranking Lance at No. 31 in his top 40 quarterback ranking. His
