Without Anquan Boldin, Baltimore Ravens May Struggle With Passing Game Next Season
In what may turn out to be one of the biggest shocks of the offseason, the Baltimore Ravens sent wide receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. It may seem crazy, but this was a move the Ravens unfortunately had to make considering their salary cap situation and it was better to receive a draft pick than nothing at all by just letting Boldin go through a release.
Of course, the main question that everybody wants to know now that Boldin is out of the picture–will the Ravens’ passing game struggle heading into 2013?
Despite having weapons like Boldin, Torrey Smith, and Jacoby Jones, Baltimore was anything but consistent throughout the regular season in 2012 when it came to their passing game and they could be in for a long year in 2013 now that Boldin is out of the picture. Not only was Boldin the top target for Joe Flacco during the playoffs, but he led the team during the regular season as well after catching 65 passes for 921 yards and four touchdowns.
If anything, the 49ers end up being the big winners in this deal considering Boldin should have an immediate impact playing alongside talented players like Colin Kaepernick, Michael Crabtree, and Verdon Davis. As for the Ravens, they better hope Smith and Jones figure out a way to find consistency and take their game to the next level in 2013.
Otherwise–the defending Super Bowl Champions may struggle with returning to the playoffs next season.
