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.

Report: Brandon Aiyuk expected to skip 49ers OTAs as contract talks remain far apart

By David Bonilla
May 21

It's hardly surprising news, but NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirmed what many anticipated: San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk is unlikely to report to Santa Clara for organized team activities (OTAs), which commenced yesterday. The team's first practice open to the media will be held this afternoon. Garafolo points out that the two sides appear to remain far apart in the negotiation process, with Aiyuk seeking a long-term deal that makes him one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL. "So don't expect to see Aiyuk around for anything that's voluntary," Garafolo shared on NFL Network's "The Insiders" show. "And let's see about the mandatory stuff as well with him because you know he wants this done. He doesn't want to have to play on the last

Report: Amon-Ra St. Brown's contract the 'benchmark' in talks between 49ers and Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla
May 24

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk was seen celebrating after the Detroit Lions signed their star wideout, Amon-Ra St. Brown, to a lucrative four-year contract extension. This led many to speculate that Aiyuk, awaiting his own deal, views St. Brown's contract as a benchmark that strengthens his position at the negotiating table. According to a new report from ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, that speculation may very well be accurate. Aiyuk is likely seeking a deal similar to, if not exceeding, the one St. Brown received. "I was told the benchmark here is Amon-Ra St. Brown," Fowler said during "NFL Live,"

49ers and WR Brandon Aiyuk reportedly not close on a new contract

By Marc Adams
May 19

The San Francisco 49ers need wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. And Aiyuk needs the 49ers. But the two sides are reportedly not close on a new deal that would keep the star receiver in San Francisco for years to come. Sunday morning, on SportsCenter, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported that the 49ers and Aiyuk are not close in contract negotiations, leading many to wonder if Aiyuk will hold out (not show up) or hold in (show up but not participate) for the remainder of the offseason and even training camp. "This one's tricky because he was implicated in some trade talks around the draft," Fowler said. "He wants a new contract; has one year left. I'm told the 49ers certainly are open to doing a deal, but talks have not progressed enough where things are close. And

Biggest contract in 2025: 49ers' Brock Purdy or Cowboys' Dak Prescott?

By David Bonilla
May 17

The San Francisco 49ers are gearing up to secure their franchise quarterback with a significant contract next year. When that happens, Brock Purdy will become one of the NFL's highest-paid players—potentially even the highest-paid. However, sports commentator Rich Eisen predicts that Purdy's reign as the highest-paid player won't last long. When asked who will earn the highest average salary starting in 2025, Eisen explained that while Purdy might initially hold the top spot, Prescott's deal will eventually top it. "Oh, it's going to be Dak Prescott," Eisen said. "Absolutely, it's going to be Dak Prescott. ... Purdy is going to wind up the number one paid quarterback in the NFL. And I just don't think he will be by the end of the day because Dak,
