Baltimore Ravens Rumors: Will Anquan Boldin Take A Pay Cut?
Well….the business side of the NFL is beginning to rear it’s ugly head. It’s being reported by Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com that the Baltimore Ravens would like veteran WR and Super Bowl Champion Anquan Boldin to take a pay cut or be released by Tuesday. Boldin, 32, is entering the final year of his contract and is set to make $6 million in 2013. The Baltimore Sun’s Aaron Wilson also tweeted that Boldin was nearly released Friday, and had even been preparing a statement thanking fans for their support. The Ravens are projected to be $12 million under the cap.
The three-time Pro Bowler was acquired by the Ravens in a 2010 trade with the Arizona Cardinals and has provided a major spark to the Ravens’ offense during the team’s Super Bowl run. Boldin’s postseason record was stellar catching 22 passes for 380 yards and four touchdowns. The future Hall of Famer has 772 catches, 10,165 yards and 58 touchdowns on his career.
Shortly after the Ravens’ thrilling victory of the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, Boldin declared that he would retire if the team releases him. “I won’t play in another uniform. We have a saying, once a Raven, always a Raven, and I’ll always be a Raven,” Boldin said.
Boldin brings veterans leadership and a degree of physicality to the Ravens young group of WRs and the team needs consistency at this position. So, needless to say the team must find a way to keep him. At this point, there is no one on roster or in free agency that could replace what Boldin brings to the Ravens. So, unless the Ravens are hoping to strike gold in the draft like they did with WR Torrey Smith, a restructure of Boldin’s contract is in order and a release would be a huge mistake.
