Anquan Boldin is staying in San Francisco.
Boldin confirmed on his foundation’s website that he will be back, writing, “49er fans, I wanted to be the first to tell you that I’m returning to San Francisco. Looking forward to joining my teammates, coaching staff and fans to bring back another championship to the Bay Area. Let’s go after our Quest For Six.”
The 33-year-old Boldin has agreed to a two-year contract, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. There’s no immediate word on the financial terms of the deal.
After arriving last year in a trade with the Ravens, Boldin became the 49ers’ No. 1 wide receiver and had one of the best seasons of his career, starting all 16 games and catching 85 passes for 1,179 yards, with seven touchdowns. The team gave Boldin the Bill Walsh Most Award as its most valuable player.
The 49ers had called re-signing Boldin their top priority, and now they’ve done it, more than a week before free agency starts.
