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.

49ers fans won't find out for sure who their team will be taking at pick three in the 2021 NFL Draft until just after the first round begins on 5 p.m. PT on Thursday. Regardless, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport believes there is currently a frontrunner for the distinction and that many around the league would be surprised if that frontrunner doesn't turn out to be former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones.

Among the tidbits he shared was his belief that a frontrunner exists and that the team would like to make sure everyone in the building is happy with the pick before making the final call.

Mac Jones is a very different quarterback compared to other top prospects like Trey Lance or Justin Fields. If analysts are to be believed, Jones may very well be the No. 3 overall pick by the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke for 30 minutes on Monday. That led to media and fan analysis of what Shanahan told reporters, with everyone deciphering every word, hoping to discover hints of which quarterback the coach prefers. Scott Pioli, the former assistant general manager for the Falcons, spent two seasons in Atlanta with Shanahan and may have some good insight into what the coach seeks in a signal-caller. Pioli joined Good Morning Football on Tuesday. Host Peter Schrager asked the former
