Ravens trade Anquan Boldin to 49ers


Well, at least Boldin will still be able to say “Harbaugh” after “Coach.”

Not long after we reported that the Ravens are trying to trade receiver Anquan Boldin, they did.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Ravens have shipped Boldin and his $6 million salary to the 49ers for a sixth-round pick.

It’s not a surprise. The Ravens weren’t going to pay Boldin $6 million, and Boldin wasn’t going to take a pay cut.

Boldin still won’t take a pay cut. The difference is that the 49ers have the cap space to afford Boldin -- along with a significant need for wideouts behind Michael Crabtree.

The move sends Boldin from the team coached by John Harbaugh to the team coached by his younger brother, Jim.
