Anquan Boldin confirms he will remain in San Francisco

Boldin AP

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.

    Top 5 WRs in Professional Football – Calvin Johnson, Pierre Garcon, Larry Fitzgerald, AJ Green and Brandon Marshall. In that order.

    Eighteen million a year?

    Damn it!!!

  4. thevikesarebest says: Mar 3, 2014 2:37 PM

    He didn’t want to take the risk of ending up in Turdbay or the shehawks.

  5. seatownballers says: Mar 3, 2014 2:37 PM

    Great move by the rivals. Ridiculously horrible bad move by the ravens for that trade. Gonna cost Baltimore another year out of the post seaSon. Because the fat contracts went to Flacco and Dumervil.

    You really don’t have it better than me, ‘Quan. Too bad you have a QB throwing ducks at you…

  7. DrSteveBrule says: Mar 3, 2014 2:38 PM

    Great player. I wish my team had him.

  8. mrheavyhustle says: Mar 3, 2014 2:38 PM

    Damn that was a quick 24 hours(sarcasm). Happy to have him stay. What’s this BS about $18mil for Kap?! Ridiculous, he screwed up back to back championships for us. Give him $8 mil and throw in incentives. Keep the defensive players if anything. A lot of QBs can strive with the Niners defense. They cover up so many of his mistakes so often. And we could get another QB for just as less. Should’ve kept Alex Smith. I think we would’ve won one of these last two Super Bowls at least. Alex won’t turn the ball over 3 possessions in a row in the NFC Championship, I promise you that.

  11. thenewguy12 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:39 PM

    Great news for the 49ers, a full season of Boldin and Crabtree along with Patton and VD will be great for them.

    I should report that comment, no Josh Gordon? And I seen Alshon Jeffrey out play Brandon Marshall a few times in their biggest games

  13. thenewguy12 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:40 PM

    2 years, $12 million with $9 mil guaranteed is what is being reported.

  14. jamaltimore says: Mar 3, 2014 2:40 PM

    Sorry to hear that. We would have liked you to come back to Baltimore to win another Superbowl.

  15. grantsbuds says: Mar 3, 2014 2:42 PM

    Now he can get his wallet back from the Sherman mugging.

  16. jayniner says: Mar 3, 2014 2:46 PM

    how about AJ green on that wr list?

  19. hess97 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:49 PM

    Yessss! Still SF’s best option to manhandle Roids Sherman.

  20. kev86 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:50 PM

    head coach threw in is red nose and big floppy shoes

  21. meatcarroll says: Mar 3, 2014 2:50 PM

    Better to pay Boldin than trust Harbaalke go draft a good WR.

  22. theclink12 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:50 PM

    @pftpoet

    You would think you would at least know how to spell your Vikings names correct. Shame on you.

    It’s Cordarrelle…not Cordarelle

  23. rhymenosaurus says: Mar 3, 2014 2:51 PM

    Pierre Garcon?

    rofl

  24. chrisk61 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:53 PM

    top 5 receivers ?? first look to the qb throwing them the ball. great qb’s make great wr’s.

    jordy nelson should be up there. and it varies yearly. what happened to victor cruz ? great one yr, bum the next.

  25. wishingtonredslur says: Mar 3, 2014 2:54 PM

    I’m a Boldin fan so good for him.

  26. flylikearaven88 says: Mar 3, 2014 2:54 PM

    See what the Ravens now have up their sleeve for filling the big hole at WR.

  27. circuscivics says: Mar 3, 2014 2:57 PM

    He announced on his foundation’s website? The same foundation that the Washington Post reported gave less than 5% of donations to actual charity? Surprise he is still keeping up that facade of a “foundation.”

  28. ctgiant says: Mar 3, 2014 3:06 PM

    WOW, look at those numbers! As a giants fan, I thought maybe, just maybe, this guy is one great WR, even with a less then, developing QB.
    Guess like others, I enjoy a great football player.

    Good to get this one done…now they can finalize Dawson, Whitner, all the while working toward extending Kap. Doing those deals can really shape who they go after in the draft and/or FA.

  30. brooklyn40niner says: Mar 3, 2014 3:16 PM

    With Boldin signed now, time to sign the Living Legend to his 18mil/year contract.

    Bad news for the 49ers…they still have “One Read and Run” Kaepernick throwing to them.

  36. beastmode5150 says: Mar 3, 2014 3:40 PM

    He is super young and fast.

  37. goldrush36 says: Mar 3, 2014 3:45 PM

    Lol Marshall is no longer the best receiver on his own team. Plenty of Bears fans will even tell you that. Jeffery and Marshall are essentially the same player. Except Jeffery doesn’t drop balls or have the attitude. I’m not even gonna touch on that Garcon crap

  38. braceyourselffor12 says: Mar 3, 2014 4:39 PM

    We are reloading, forward march! The Quest for Six continues.

    GO NINERS!!!!!

  39. ceefu says: Mar 3, 2014 4:56 PM

    Good for SF, and good for the NFC West. Love watching him battle with our secondary.

    Go Hawks!

  40. 7ftgriff says: Mar 3, 2014 5:02 PM

    So, obviously Q wasn’t one of the people who are getting “tired” of Harbaugh’s Antics.

    Maybe this will go to show that a lot of SF’s current issues are being trumped up by the media and aren’t really that substantial. (let’s talk to LeMichael James, Anthony Dixon, and Carlos Rogers, and report that there are locker room issues) .

    Now go draft Calvin Pryor in rd 1 and Stanley Jean-Baptiste in rd 2 and let’s do this whole quest for six thing again.

  41. jbass323 says: Mar 3, 2014 5:14 PM

    Garçon a top 5?! Smoking crack.

  42. janvanflac says: Mar 3, 2014 6:00 PM

    Boldin is a beast of a player, and since his game is built on making tough catches, not speed, he’s good for a while longer. Would love to have him on my team.

  43. ninetysixer says: Mar 3, 2014 6:28 PM

    so much for nobody wanting to play for the head coach

  44. thebirdofprey2 says: Mar 3, 2014 7:30 PM

    As a fan of a division rival I would bring up his age but that’s not a factor because he is maybe the most physical WR in football, has excellent hands and crafty vet enough to be able to push off time to time and never get caught.

    He is a player with every bit of his contract.

  45. adderal says: Mar 3, 2014 8:21 PM

    Glad they worked it out, seemed to fit right in. Great in the community and has the strength to deal with the strong corners up north. It’s a long wait till September

  46. uberniner says: Mar 4, 2014 3:22 AM

    When Q was in Arizona a few years ago, he got sandwiched by a viscous hit from both sides. It broke his jaw, and he had to have his teeth wired together. I think he lost a couple of teeth, too.

    But, he got up, and where did we see him the following Sunday? Playing WR, not whining. I have a lot of respect for Q. He is the iron man.
