The 49ers weren’t the only NFC team who made a trade offer for Baltimore’s Anquan Boldin.

PFT’s Mike Florio, citing a source with knowledge of the discussions, reports the Vikings offered a seventh-round pick to Baltimore for Boldin.

The 49ers, of course, got the deal done with a sixth-rounder, strengthening a pass catching corps that already had quality performers in wide receiver Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis.

Meanwhile, Minnesota, which is poised to trade top target Percy Harvin to Seattle, is still in need of some major help at wide receiver.
