Anquan Boldin Closing in on Deal with 49ers

Anquan Boldin was set to become a free agent in a few weeks, but it looks like he is closing in on a deal to stay with the San Francisco 49ers.

Boldin was a physical presence with the 49ers and brought his veteran leadership onto the roster. He was one of the top receivers on the team. He finished with 1179 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns for the season. Boldin and the 49ers were a perfect match for each other. The 49ers needed a receiver of Boldin’s caliber and he stepped into a good situation with the team.

The team should be competing for a Super Bowl again this season. They will be looking to knock off the Seattle Seahawks this time around.
