The Ravens will acquire a sixth-round pick in exchange for Boldin, who reportedly refused to take a salary cut
Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly traded wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers.
According to the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens will acquire a sixth-round pick in exchange for Boldin, who reportedly refused to take a salary cut to help the Super Bowl champs get under the salary cap.
The Ravens had acquired Boldin three years ago in a trade with Arizona.
Boldin spent his first seven seasons with the Cardinals before joining the Ravens. He caught 65 passes for 921 yards with four touchdowns this past season and was a big factor in Baltimore's Super Bowl run.
In four playoff games, Boldin hauled in 22 passes for 380 yards with four scores. In the Super Bowl victory over the Niners, he caught six balls for 104 yards and a touchdown.
The 32-year-old Florida State product has 772 career receptions for 10,165 yards with 58 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons. He was a five-time 1,000-yard receiver with Arizona, but never reached that plateau in three seasons with the Ravens.
