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.

Believe it or not, Kyle Shanahan found some good from the 49ers' loss to the Dolphins

By David Bonilla
Oct 17, 2020

It may seem like there was nothing good to take away from last weekend's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but that's not how head coach Kyle Shanahan sees it. "There was so much stuff that we did bad that is fixable," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "And surprisingly, there was a number of encouraging things. (I know) that would be hard to believe, and I know people don't totally want to hear that." An embarrassing defeat like that is challenging for any fan to overlook. This week has seemingly been about placing blame via social media. The 49ers, however, are moving forward. Shanahan didn't review much of that loss with his team this week. He left that to his assistant coaches. But there were encouraging things upon which the team can

49ers-Patriots: Bill Belichick says George Kittle 'doesn't have any weak points,' opts not to discuss Jimmy Garoppolo trade again

Jimmy Garoppolo played his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with the New England Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo became the starter for the 49ers, signed a five-year contract during the ensuing offseason, and last season led the team to a Super Bowl appearance. Belichick, while speaking with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Monday, was asked what he's seen from Garoppolo's development since the trade. "Well, we haven't played him since then," Belichick responded. "I haven't really studied him, but we'll take a close look. But I mean, it just looks like about what I thought it would like. I mean, he's a quality player. The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you

49ers' Raheem Mostert, Ben Garland likely headed to IR; Weston Richburg not expected back until Week 12

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that running back Raheem Mostert suffered a high-ankle sprain on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. "We'll see how it progresses," Shanahan said. "Most likely IR (for Mostert)." Mostert will have company. Center Ben Garland left Sunday's game with a calf strain and will be "out for a while," according to Shanahan. He will "most likely" land on injured reserve later this week too. Shanahan said Hroniss Grasu would replace Garland until center Weston Richburg can return (see below). Shanahan also provided the following injury updates. Safety Jaquiski Tartt suffered a groin strain. The 49ers will learn more this week about the severity of the
