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.

Rich Eisen 'not ready to sleep' on the 49ers and their playoff chances

By David Bonilla
Nov 24, 2020

While many have given up on the San Francisco 49ers and the team's playoff chances, Rich Eisen hasn't. The host of The Rich Eisen Show feels Kyle Shanahan's squad still has a good shot at making a run during these final six games of the regular season and perhaps surprising some people. Eisen's hot take during his "4 Downs with Rich" segment saw the 49ers, not the 4-6 Minnesota Vikings or Detroit Lions, as a team that can sneak into postseason play as the seventh seed and make things uncomfortable for an opponent. "I am not done with them yet," said Eisen. "The 49ers are coming off their bye this week, Thanksgiving week. They're coming back, and they're taking on the Rams, who have a short week. "I don't know. The 49ers can come in there,

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom on Tuesday and provided several updates on players. First, the injury updates. Shanahan was holding out hope that defensive end Dee Ford would return from his back injury this season. The coach didn't sound too optimistic of that on Tuesday when asked if Ford might return. "It's not looking like it," Shanahan said. "I mean, I'm not going to say no for sure. We're holding out hope but it's not looking like it." The same is the case for center Weston Richburg and defensive end Ronald Blair. "I don't (expect them to return this season)," Shanahan said. "Both of them had really bad setbacks with the stuff that happened in their surgeries. I know both of them are still

Simms confident Kyle Shanahan, 49ers draft DK Metcalf had the Seahawks not snatched him up

By David Bonilla
Dec 2, 2020

The San Francisco 49ers may have been eyeing wide receiver DK Metcalf with their third-round pick in 2019. That's what head coach Kyle Shanahan's friend and co-host of NBC's Pro Football Talk Live told Mike Florio this week. Unfortunately for Shanahan, the division-rival Seattle Seahawks drafted him just three slots above the 49ers' third-round selection. San Francisco went on to select wide receiver Jalen Hurd, who has yet to appear in an NFL game. "I feel pretty confident in saying that if DK Metcalf was there for that pick, that Kyle would have taken him," Simms told Florio. "I know -- Kyle may not like me saying this or whatever -- he really liked DK Metcalf.
