This is the time for last-minute roster-tweaking, and for veterans, a last chance to find a chair before training camps begin.
For veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin, that means another trip to Detroit, after his visit in June.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Lions are finalizing a one-year deal with the veteran wideout today.
Boldin has some familiarity with Lions coach Jim Caldwell from their days together with the Ravens, and he gives the Lions the kind of physical receiver they may have lacked after the retirement of Calvin Johnson this offseason, the story pointed out. Boldin will remain behind free agent signing Marvin Jones and Golden Tate on the depth chart but may see time in three-WR sets.
