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.

49ers DC DeMeco Ryans talks CB availability, says Josh Norman 'in a really good place'

By Kirk Larrabee

It remains to be seen what the 49ers will do at cornerback against the Detroit Lions on Sunday if starter Emmanuel Moseley is unable to play, but it's possible that recently-signed veteran Josh Norman may be able to contribute if called upon. Moseley remained sidelined at practice on Thursday while dealing with a knee injury. Norman has less than a week of practice with the 49ers under his belt after being signed on September 6, which creates a question of whether or not he'd be in shape to play in Sunday's season opener. But defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans told reporters after practice on Thursday that Norman is trending in a positive direction despite his limited practice time. "One thing about Josh is he's a veteran who has done it for a while," Ryans said.



Kyle Shanahan talks 49ers' CB options with Jason Verrett injured; Richard Sherman 'always a possibility'

Could Richard Sherman return to the San Francisco 49ers? Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't eliminating the possibility following the likely loss of starting cornerback Jason Verrett for the season. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that he fears Verrett suffered a torn ACL, ending the season again for the often-injured veteran cornerback. What are the 49ers' options moving forward? Recently-signed cornerback Josh Norman was inactive for the game. "He was definitely ready to go," Shanahan said. "Josh actually told us if we tell him today that he's up, he'll be ready to go. So Josh has been a soldier all week, and I'm real excited to have him here, and I know he was ready this week, so I expect him to be ready next week also." Shanahan



49ers-Lions: Shanahan talks RB Trey Sermon's status; RB Elijah Mitchell recaps his NFL debut

Elijah Mitchell finishing the day with over 100 rushing yards while Raheem Mostert and Trey Sermon watched from the sidelines was probably not the result anyone expected at running back for the San Francisco 49ers in their 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. But that's exactly how things transpired after the third-round pick Sermon was an unexpected healthy scratch and Mostert left the game early due to a knee injury. Mitchell, who was selected in Round 6 of the 2021 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisiana, finished the day with 19 carries for 104 yards, with one of those carries going for a 38-yard touchdown. Mitchell was impressive for the 49ers during training camp and the preseason when he was healthy, so his success when given the

The San Francisco 49ers freed up about $5.85 million in salary-cap space by tweaking the contract of safety Jimmie Ward, per Field Yates. The ESPN reporter says the team converted about $7.8 million of the defender's 2021 compensation into a bonus to do so. Another recently reworked deal to create cap space for in-season management: the 49ers converted about $7.8M of S Jimmie Ward's 2021 compensation into a bonus, resulting in about $5.85M of space. San Francisco is at about $7.3M in space.— Field Yates (@FieldYates)
