This is the time for last-minute roster-tweaking, and for veterans, a last chance to find a chair before training camps begin.

For veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin, that means another trip to Detroit, after his visit in June.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN.com, the Lions are finalizing a one-year deal with the veteran wideout today.

Boldin has some familiarity with Lions coach Jim Caldwell from their days together with the Ravens, and he gives the Lions the kind of physical receiver they may have lacked after the retirement of Calvin Johnson this offseason.

They signed free agent Marvin Jones early in free agency to go with Golden Tate, but Boldin’s a known commodity.

His numbers were down last year in San Francisco, but so were everyone else’s, and he’s been a consistently productive player over the course of his 13-year career.
