49ers Answer: Anquan Boldin

Wild on Sports
49ers Answer: Anquan Boldin

Well, that didn't take long. Just hours after division rival Seattle acquired star receiver Percy Harvin the 49ers have answered back in a big way.

According to multiple sources, the 49ers are on the verge of acquiring WR Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens. It is not yet clear what will be going the other way but it is believed to be draft picks.

The deal comes just days after it was reported that the Ravens gave Boldin an ultimatum of take a pay cut (from $6mil to $4mil) or likely be cut. Well, they didn't cut him, but they did live up to their word. Boldin made it clear that he should not be subject to a pay cut, particularly following a Super Bowl where he all but made about half of Joe Flacco's recent contract for him with a huge game. In fact, it was Boldin, not Flacco, who should have been named the game's MVP.

Regardless, the team that lost to Boldin in the Super Bowl now has him. The team that looked to be a step behind in the NFC West is now back at the top.

Huge trade day for that division. And the fun is just beginning. Tuesday at 4pm free agency opens. Hold on to your hats folks!
