Anquan Boldin to retire.


The three time Pro Bowler has decided to call it quits after 14 seasons in the NFL.

Anquan Boldin was selected by the Cardinals in the second-round of the 2003 draft, after playing seven years with the team he was traded to the Baltimore Ravens in 2010.

After spending three seasons with the Ravens, he was traded to the San Francisco 49ers. He’s spent three seasons with the ‘9ers before signing a one-year contract with the Detroit Lions, in 2016.

The veteran wide receiver was contemplated retirement in the off season, but the lure of the game was tantalizing enough for him to sign a one-year $2.75 million contract with the Bills, in July of this year.

In his illustrious 14-year career, he has recorded 1,076 receptions for 13,799 yards and 82 touchdowns.He won the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award in 2015, was NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2003, and a Super Bowl Champion in 2013 when the Ravens defeated the 49ers 34-31.

The Buffalo Bills respect Anquan’s decision to retire from the NFL and have stated that they appreciate the time he has given them over the past couple of weeks. They acknowledge Boldin as being one of the best wide receivers to play the game and wished him and his family all the best as they move forward in life.
