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.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, the San Francisco 49ers engaged in contract discussions with left tackle Trent Williams last week. The writer describes the talks as "extensive," explaining that coming to an agreement before the regular season's final weekend would have helped the 49ers' salary cap situation. While the discussions didn't result in a new contract for the eight-time Pro Bowl selection, it sends a clear message that re-signing Williams is among the team's top priorities. #49ers and Pro Bowl LT Trent

With the 2020 NFL season over for those teams not in the playoffs, like the San Francisco 49ers, it's officially mock-draft season. The Niners own the No. 12 overall pick in this year's rookie selection process. ESPN analyst Todd McShay released his latest mock draft, which does not include any trades, given the draft is still months away. He has just two quarterbacks — Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Zach Wilson of BYU — being selected ahead of the 49ers' first-round selection. Yet, the analyst doesn't have general manager John Lynch, head coach Kyle Shanahan, and company going

John Lynch doesn't see a need to restructure Jimmy Garoppolo's contract right now

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are moving forward with the assumption that this year's salary cap will be set at $175 million. It will probably be a bit higher, but general manager John Lynch would rather start with the floor. "Anything that we get (above $175 million), I think, is going to be a bonus and gravy, and will help us," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "But if it's 175, we'll make it work, and I think we can keep a lot of these players together. You can't keep everyone, but I think we can prioritize. We'll have a very good plan, and I feel really good about our team, moving forward." Of course, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's
