The 49ers acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens and paid him a $6 million salary. Now, the sides are negotiating a multi-year extension that could prevent Boldin from being available when free agents can begin negotiating with other teams on March 8.
Boldin actually increased his production upon Michael Crabtree’s return. He averaged 4.7-66-.45 without Crabtree and 5.7-83-.43 with Crabtree in the lineup. The 49ers are likely to re-sign him, but he’ll probably be a solid fantasy WR3 wherever he lands.
