That long list of potential free-agent receivers may eventually have at least one less name on it.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports that the 49ers are negotiating with receiver Anquan Boldin regarding the possible extension of a contract due to expire on March 11.

Boldin, 33, arrived last year in an unexpected trade with the Ravens, after he balked at dropping his salary for 2013 from $6 million to $4 million.  The veteran wideout had 85 catches for 1,179 yards last year, his highest yardage total since 2006.

Boldin has hinted that he wants to return to the 49ers.

Other priorities for the 49ers include signing quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a contract extension; he’s due to become a free agent in 2015.  Also, the 49ers are determined to extend the contract of coach Jim Harbaugh.

  1. When will teams learn that this guy is worth every penny he’s paid? Every time a team lets him go to save money, their offense goes right into the toilet.

  2. The reigning World Champions welcome this news. Oldin couldn’t even handle Byron Maxwell, let alone Richard Sherman. Literally had a whopping total of 1 catch in 3 games when matched up against Sherm. I can’t tell who’s more sorry and mediocre between Oldin and Crabtree.

  3. You go, Santa Clara! Give lifetime extensions to those losers who will never win a Super Bowl. Pete Carroll is Jim Harbaugh’s daddy. 3 of Harbaugh’s 4 wins against the Seahawks were with the dearly missed Alex Smith, and 2 of those 3 were against Tarvaris Jackson LOL

  5. Anquan is a possession receiver, but he’s as good a possession receiver that’s ever played the game. I’ve been a huge fan of his since he broke out in his first NFL game with Arizona and I’m really excited at the prospect of him coming back to help my favorite team get back to the Super Bowl.

  6. Boldin’s extension will look even more genius when we draft Mike Evans or Kelvin Benjamin to pair along with Crabtree & Boldin. Boldin can tutor both.

    He’s mediocre at best!!!! Lol
    ———————————————————–
    At least he made it on the field for more than two games without complaining of a headache! LOL and is a much better “mediocre: player than Sidney Rice or most of the other Hawk receivers! See you in sept!

    3 games against Seattle, a total of 12 catches

    including one in San Fran where he completely made Sherman look like a fool and got a pass interference call as well

    Seattle fans are so ignorant lol

  9. You will now refer to Seahawk receivers as — Super Bowl champion wide out Rice or Harvin ect.. when chastising them.

  10. Hawk fans need to get over themselves. It took winning at least two Lombardi’s before 49er fans felt as entitled to them as you jokers.

  11. Q was a top 15 WR this yr look up the stats! Sign him to a 2-yr $10 million deal with $6 million guaranteed…that is great value for for him, he brings so much to the team with catching, blocking, toughness, and can help teach our young WR core how to play in the NFL.

    Seattle fans are so unreal! “pepperdowns says:You will now refer to Seahawk receivers as — Super Bowl champion wide out Rice or Harvin ect.. when chastising them.”

    Haha they did nothing for your team this yr besides steal money from you!

    Why don’t you act with class…yes your team is good but so are the Niners. I mean act like you’ve been there before oh wait you haven’t!

  12. It’s funny on how much of a loser fan base Seattle has. You have won 1 SB in a lifetime of ineptitude and now you are the Lakers and Yankees….or umm…the Niners.

    Thought you were a niner fan….or are you just the bandwagon type?

    Carroll barely has a winning record? He’s like at least a dozen games over .500 with Seattle. Im a 9ers fan but admit Harbaugh inherited most of the studs here. Willis, Staley, Gore, VD, Crabs, Iupati, Boone, Bowman, Lee, etc. It was clear Singletary was holding us back, any average coach could have been 10-6+ with this team.

    Or do you just happen to like lots of teams?

    I’m a Giants fan and am commenting to say Richard Sherman is Incredible.

    meatcarroll says: Dec 19, 2013 6:05 PM

    I ain’t even mad at Sherman, been a Bronco fan since the 81 and he’s the best CB I’ve seen since Bailey and maybe Woodson.

    “probably going to win multiple Super Bowl rings before his career is over.”
    People said the same thing about Dan Marino. Don’t count your chickens before they’ve hatched. I’m a Colts fan and I’d like it if people would stop crowning Luck’s ass right away please. He did a good job climbing out of the huge hole that he was responsible for building, but not every team is going to roll over and die like the Chiefs.

    Tom Cable is a total badass and I credit him for molding their OL and ground game from a bunch of meek little softies after they let Hutch leave in 06 into unapologetic ass-kickers in 2011. I honestly wish my Raiders didn’t stupidly fire him and I bet he’s the successor whenever Pete Carroll retires.

  14. Retaining Boldin isn’t too hard. The Niners players get along really well. They treat each other like brothers. You can see how happy they are to be playing on the same team. Many players will gladly take less money and stay. Others, however, cannot stay because they have to look after their future and they simply cannot turn down a fat cat contract dangling in their faces.

  15. I still don’t know how all these seatlle fans are talking trash after ONE super bowl win, EVER… Not to mention the fact they barely squeaked by the niners. I have tried to be good and give seattle props for doing so well but come on, don’t diss on Boldin just because you finally won a bowl. Have more respect for the man then that.

  16. San Francisco fans concern themselves with two champion caliber teams; the Niners and the Giants.

    Have the Hawk fans abandoned their Mariners? Just curious. Down here we get to enjoy competition year round and Seattle we all know you wish you were doing that too. Please don’t say baseball is boring and try to disparage the sport. If your MLB team was winning World Series as the Giants have recently you all would be running those mouths same as done for the Hawks.

    We can agree hopefully you do what you can for an innocent Amanda Knox. Just thinking outside of the box.

    GO NINERS! GO GIANTS!
