The trade that will send receiver Anquan Boldin from the Ravens to the 49ers has been announced. But it still hinges on Boldin passing a physical.
And Boldin tweeted within the hour that his physical will be placed “on hold for a few days” because Boldin is “busy in Senegal with Oxfam America.”
The problem for the Ravens is that Boldin’s $6 million salary will continue to count against the team’s cap until the trade is done.
Not that the Ravens are pressed like the Cowboys against the cap. But, still, if the goal was to drop Boldin’s cap number by the start of the new league year, it won’t be happening for a few more days.
