Anquan Boldin thanks 49ers, fans for their support

Jul 26, 2016 at 4:17 PM--


Always a class act, Anquan Boldin thanked the 49ers organization and the fans of the team for their support during his time in San Francisco.


Boldin will be joining the Detroit Lions on a one-year deal, which was reported earlier today by Adam Schefter of ESPN. He visited with Detroit back on June 13 following a visit with the Washington Redskins. The New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles were also reportedly interested in acquiring the free agent wide receiver.

The 49ers acquired Boldin via a trade with the Baltimore Ravens in 2013. He was not re-signed this offseason as the team looks to see what it has with the numerous younger receivers on the roster.

Boldin, who will be 36 years old in October, had 69 receptions for 789 yards and four touchdowns in 2015 and surpassed 1,000 yards (1,062 in 2014 and 1,179 in 2013) in each of his previous two seasons with San Francisco. He ranks 17th all-time in receiving yards with 13,195 and is 12th all-time in receptions with 1,009.


During his three seasons with the 49ers, Boldin had 237 catches for 3,030 yards and 16 touchdowns.

In February, Boldin won the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award, given out each year honoring an NFL player's volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field. He was also the recipient of the Leigh Steinberg Humanitarian Award.

How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between

WR Brandon Aiyuk: 49ers have chip on their shoulder after recent playoff losses

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Jan 26

The San Francisco 49ers are facing off against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship on Sunday, with the winner facing off against either the Cincinnati Bengals or the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl. This is a stage familiar for the 49ers, as they've made the NFC Championship Game in three of the past four seasons now, losing to the Los Angeles Rams last season, while going to the Super Bowl in 2019 after a win over the Green Bay Packers. However, despite seeing consistent success, the 49ers haven't accomplished their No. 1 goal: winning a Super Bowl, which has left a chip on their shoulder as they strive to hit that goal this season. When asked about the topic, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk agreed with the sentiment about having a chip
