Brandon Beane says things “at a stall” with Anquan Boldin

Bills coach Sean McDermott offered an update on rookie wide receiver Zay Jones this week and said Jones has “had a nice camp” while learning to play both inside and outside in the Buffalo offense.

That versatility should help Jones earn playing time in his first NFL campaign whether the Bills add veteran help to the receiver group or not, but the team could still benefit from some additional help for Jones and Sammy Watkins at wideout. They met with veteran Anquan Boldin in late July, but no deal was struck and General Manager Brandon Beane said that the ball remains in Boldin’s court when it comes to what he wants to do this year.

“It’s kind of at a stall is probably the best way I can put it,” Beane said during an appearance with “Howard and Jeremy” on WGR 550. “Anquan is at a time in his life where I think family is very important. That’s what I’ve drawn from this. His family is down in Florida. I’m not sure where he’s at with that. He’s got to be all in and that’s where we left it. If he’s not, we’ll let him make that decision when he’s ready.”

Beane said he didn’t have a date in mind when the team would move on from the possibility of adding Boldin, although he did concede that sooner is better than later in terms of integrating him into the team. For now, though, Boldin isn’t with the team and the Bills will have to work on getting the receivers that are into form.

    Leave the man alone wile he is in there and let him crap in peace.

  2. I wouldn’t mind Mr. Boldin, But we seem healthier than we have been @ receiver in a long time. Shoulda, coulda, kept Gilessli, but whatever. The troll from Toronto can use his 6 different logon’s trashing the Bills, while drinking beers watching Buffalo football for all I care 🙂

    Bolden wants ugly money, money that the Bills have to pay to get anyone to play there.

    Would love you to come across the border for a Bills game. We could mail you back to Toronto in a cardboard box.

  4. @Joe, aka Troll Toronto. You’re just mad at your dad. Its not your fault.

    Boldin wants to play close to home and buffalo couldn’t be any further. Problem is Miami, TB & Jax are stacked at receiver. Plus he probably doesn’t want to do camp and is waiting to sign.
    Would be a huge asset if added to the Bills.

    Hey troll………….I have one ID and one ID only. I don’t roll like you do. You are nothing but a loser.

  7. This is an easy one to figure out. Boldin does not want to go through camp at his age. He has been in town and looked at the playbook, he will join the Bills in a couple more weeks.
