Baalke: Door not closed on re-signing Anquan Boldin

May 13, 2016 at 2:20 PM--


Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports reports that, according to San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke, the door has not yet closed on re-signing WR Anquan Boldin, who remains a free agent. Both the 49ers and Boldin are reportedly taking their time to look at their options. However, the 49ers do like their your talent at receiver.


Baalke doesn't typically close the door on any roster scenario, but it sure has looked as though the 49ers and Boldin have moved on from one another. Boldin, who will turn 36 years old in October, 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.

Boldin visited with the Washington Redskins on March 29. "I wouldn't say that door has been shut by any stretch," Baalke told CSN Bay Area prior to the draft while discussing the possibility of Boldin returning. "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."

Boldin 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.

The 49ers have a pretty crowded group of wide receivers right now. They are Dres Anderson, Aaron Burbridge, Devon Cajuste, DiAndre Campbell, Bruce Ellington, Quinton Patton, Eric Rogers, Jerome Simpson, DeAndre Smelter, Torrey Smith, Bryce Treggs, and DeAndrew White.

Baalke also confirmed that QB Colin Kaepernick has resumed throwing, but has not yet been cleared to practice with the team.

Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on calf injury: 'I feel it, but it's not hindering me at all'

Jimmy Garoppolo missed Week 5 with a calf injury suffered a week earlier. He returned on Sunday night against the Indianapolis Colts but delivered a sloppy performance on a rain-soaked Levi's Stadium field. Garoppolo finished the game 16-of-27 for 181 yards, a touchdown, and two interceptions. While the outing looked like it might be enough to tempt the 49ers to at least consider a quarterback change this week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he "would guess" Garoppolo remains the starter. It wasn't exactly a confidence-inspiring response. Garoppolo admits that his calf isn't at 100 percent yet, but the quarterback didn't use the injury as an excuse
