Anquan Boldin has not engaged in contract talks with 49ers

Jan 26, 2016 at 11:28 AM--


San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin was on a conference call for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award today and shared that he has not yet engaged in contract talks with the team. We assume this means that his agent has not yet had discussions with the 49ers on behalf of Boldin, who is scheduled to become a free agent.


"I haven't talked to anybody yet. Honestly, I'm not to the point where I feel like I have to deal with that right now," Boldin said.

Of course, if he does fit into the 49ers' future plans, there is still plenty of time. NFL free agency doesn't begin until March 9 this year. Teams can begin negotiating with scheduled free agents on March 7.

The 49ers have had a lot on their plate this month. They have been busy putting together a coaching staff following the firing of head coach Jim Tomsula and the hiring of his successor, Chip Kelly. Boldin mentioned that he spoke briefly with Kelly following his hiring.

Anquan Boldin: 'Honor to Be Mentioned' 

This season, Boldin had 69 receptions for 789 yards and four touchdowns. That was the fewest receiving yards he has had since 2004 with the Arizona Cardinals, which was his second year in the league. Of course, those numbers were still enough to lead the team in receiving this past season. Boldin had surpassed 1,000 yards (1,062 in 2014 and 1,179 in 2013) in each of his previous two seasons with San Francisco.

Boldin ranks 17th all-time in receiving yards with 13,195 and is 12th all-time in receptions with 1,009. He is 35 years old and will turn 36 in October.

Fred Warner talks rookie 49ers DC DeMeco Ryans: "DeMeco is as great as they come"

With an impressive Sunday afternoon 27-24 win against the Los Angeles Rams, it seems like the 49ers are reaching the expectations fans had for the team before the season. Sitting at a 10-7 record with the 6th seed in the NFC, they now look to face the Dallas Cowboys next Sunday. With the 49ers being as dangerous as teams come in the NFL currently, it's hard to remember that, just prior to the season, San Francisco went through an overhaul in terms of organization on the coaching and leadership staff. Former pass-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and, most importantly, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh both departed for the Jets, leaving huge vacancies to fill during the offseason. Fortunately, the Niners elevated Mike McDaniel to fill an offensive coordinator role and former

Deebo Samuel sat down to talk with reporters via Zoom after Thursday's practice. The San Francisco 49ers' dynamic receiver has become a household name and a nightmare for opposing defenses. Samuel responded to several questions during the media session. Below are some of the more noteworthy. Has the newfound fame affected the 49ers wide back? "It don't affect me at all," Samuel said. "I just worry about this team, winning, and all the guys that's around. I don't pay attention to all the outside noise that's kind of thrown at your face. But it's not hard to block it out and just focus on the things that



Rapoport weighs in on potential 49ers-Deebo Samuel contract extension this offseason

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel, in his third season with the San Francisco 49ers, is becoming a bonafide NFL star. The team can consider locking up their second-round pick in 2019 to a long-term deal starting this offseason. While the 49ers are focused on Saturday night's playoff bout with the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, one NFL insider discussed the possibility of a 49ers-Samuel contract negotiation starting once their playoff run is over. "Deebo Samuel has emerged as one of the top weapons in the NFL," Ian Rapoport said Saturday on NFL Network, "and it sounds like he's about to get paid like one. Here's why. The San Francisco 49ers are among the most proactive teams when it comes to contract extensions. "Deebo Samuel [is] heading into the final



DL Arden Key says coming to 49ers has exceeded expectations: 'I love it here'

By Kirk Larrabee

It's not impossible to imagine a situation where the 49ers and defensive lineman Arden Key are unable to hammer out a new contract this offseason, but it won't be because Key isn't happy being a part of the organization. Key signed with the 49ers on a one-year deal in April after being let go by the Raiders, for whom he played three seasons after being selected as a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Key has voiced displeasure in the past about his time with the Raiders after posting just 37 tackles and three sacks over those three seasons, but he's had the exact opposite reaction about his time with the 49ers, which has seen him collect a career high 6.5 sacks and 17
