Could Anquan Boldin be an option for the Cincinnati Bengals?
There has been ongoing speculation that Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin could be released. Boldin, 32, played a major role in the Ravens’ Super Bowl run, but he could be on the chopping block after refusing to take a pay cut. Boldin’s cap number for 2013 is $7.531 million. The Ravens are trying to clear room to re-sign their free agents including linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.
If Boldin is released could he join forces with AJ Green and the Cincinnati Bengals? The Bengals need a complementary wide receiver opposite Green and Boldin proved he can play at a high-level.
Boldin led all receivers in the playoffs with 380 yards, 22 receptions and four touchdowns. Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco clearly wants him back next season.
“Without him, we don’t win the Super Bowl. He’s a huge part of this team and someone I want to see back,” Flacco told USA TODAY Sports. “Obviously, when you’re a player of his caliber, you believe you’re worth a number and that’s what you should get. He’s going to stick to his guns, and that’s the way it should be.”
From an Xs and Os standpoint, he could fit in Cincinnati. He is physical and can go up and get the ball. Boldin could help Andy Dalton who is still developing heading into his third-season in the NFL. He could add a veteran presence who knows what it takes to win.
It remains to be seen whether or not Boldin will be released. The Bengals need another weapon and he could be the answer.
