Washington is hosting Anquan Boldin for a visit today

The San Francisco 49ers have said that they are likely to address the situation with their top receiver and reigning NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award winner later rather than sooner. Anquan Boldin is an unrestricted free agent and he will be visiting with the Washinton Redskins today according Redskins beat writer Mike Jones.


"I wouldn't say that door has been shut by any stretch," 49ers general manager Trent Baalke told CSN Bay Area last week. "But where it is, it's where it was when we left off. He's going to explore his options, and we're going to explore ours. We got a draft to go through. It would be later than sooner, in terms of the final decision that's made."

Boldin had stated that he would not mind returning to the 49ers, but would also like a chance to play for a contender. After all, he is entering what is likely the latter portion of his career. He has not garnered much attention during free agency, but has been keeping very busy with his charities.

Boldin, who will be 36 years old in October, had 69 receptions for 789 yards and four touchdowns in 2015. 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. 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. Other wide receivers on the San Francisco roster include Dres Anderson, Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton, Eric Rogers, Jerome Simpson, DeAndre Smelter, Torrey Smith, and DeAndrew White.

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current
