The NFL Network reports that the three-team race for Anquan Boldin is down to two: Kansas City and Baltimore. It could be down to one team soon enough.
SI’s Peter King writes that the Ravens are close to making a
deal for Boldin.
The Patriots, who were briefly mentioned as favorites earlier in the day, have reportedly dropped out of the bidding. It’s possible they didn’t like to be used as leverage in other negotiations.
Trade compensation was never going to be the tough part in acquiring Boldin. Coming up with a contract that would satisfy the seven-year veteran is far trickier.
It’s beginning to look like Baltimore is going to do just that, adding a much-needed weapon to Joe Flacco’s arsenal. We wonder if Derrick Mason would still fit in Baltimore.
