Updating a previous report, the San Francisco 49ers have re-signed WR Anquan Boldin to a two-year deal worth $12 million. The deal includes $9 million in guaranteed money.
Huddle Up: Boldin was dominant for the Niners, especially with Michael Crabtree missing a significant chunk of the season. He'll team with Crabtree and Vernon Davis to give San Francisco one of the most physical receiving corps in football--the kind of receiving corps necessary for battling division rival Seattle's physical secondary.

According to various reports Sunday, Feb. 23, San Francisco 49ers are close to a new contract with impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin.
Huddle Up: Once thought to be on track to hit the open market, Boldin now appears to be a sure bet to return to San Fran, where this past year he posted his best fantasy season (85-1,179-7) since his final season (89-1,038-11 in 2008) with the Cards.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said re-signing impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin will be one of the team's top priorities this offseason and indicated talks with Boldin are going in a positive direction.
Huddle Up: The Niners have Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis; keeping Boldin in San Francisco gives Colin Kaepernick a deep, physical receiving corps that should be able to challenge the deep, physical secondary of division rival Seattle.

The San Francisco 49ers are negotiating a multi-year extension with WR Anquan Boldin.
Huddle Up: Right after the season, it appeared it might be one and done for Boldin in San Fran, but there since has been a groundswell of support from teammates and fans to keep the veteran wideout around. Look for something to get done well before free agency opens in March.

According to a source, the San Francisco 49ers want impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin back, and the feeling is mutual. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport expects something to get done to keep Boldin in San Francisco.
Huddle Up: Even though Michael Crabtree is the team's No. 1 wideout, the Niners would be foolish to the let the productive veteran go without a fight.

The San Francisco 49ers are not likely to use the franchise tag this offseason. The team hopes to bring back WR Anquan Boldin, S Donte Whitner and CB Tarell Brown.
Huddle Up: Even at age 34, Boldin could attract a number of suitors if he hits the open market. He's a veteran leader with a track record of postseason success, even if it's not always evident in his week-in, week-out regular-season fantasy numbers.

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin has 24 catches for 372 yards and two touchdowns this season. The other five wideouts have combined for 13 catches for 112 yards.
Huddle Up: Hey, no surprise here -- it was the same way with Michael Crabtree and everyone else the past few seasons.

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin totaled 208 receiving yards and a touchdown on 13 catches in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers. Boldin's highest yards output in three years with the Baltimore Ravens was 145 yards. QB Colin Kaepernick's 412 passing yards were the most by an opening day quarterback in team history.
Huddle Up: This seems like a great sell-high moment. Boldin is sure to have a fine season, but it's hard to believe he will reach these heights again.

The San Francisco 49ers list WR Kyle Williams as a starting wide receiver opposite WR Anquan Boldin on their initial depth chart heading into the regular season opener against the Green Bay Packers.
Huddle Up: Williams has 35 career receptions and missed the entire preseason battling injuries. He may be listed as a starter on the depth chart but rookie Quinton Patton has more fantasy upside. Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis will see the majority of targets from Colin Kaepernick's early in the year.

San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin said he already feels comfortable in the offense after participating in organized team activities Tuesday, May 28. Boldin said he's run many of the same routes and plays in the team's complicated version of the West Coast offense, and he's just working on the terminology now. QB Colin Kaepernick has already enjoyed throwing to Boldin and has made him his first read often. "I guess I'm looked at as being able to step in right now and make plays," Boldin said. "And that's what I want to bring. I want Kaep to be comfortable. I want the other quarterbacks to be comfortable enough to, even if it doesn't look like I'm open, just give me a chance. I'll make a play for you."
Huddle Up: Boldin is a savvy veteran so it should come as no surprise he's picking up the offense quickly. And with Michael Crabtree sidelined, Kaepernick will need a go-to receiver; Boldin is in line to fill that role, which would bump his fantasy projections up accordingly.

The San Francisco 49ers could consider selecting more than one wide receiver in the 2013 NFL Draft because WRs Anquan Boldin, Mario Manningham and Kyle Williams are entering the final year of their contracts.
Huddle Up: The Niners spent a first-round pick on A.J. Jenkins last year, but aside from Michael Crabtree they have little in the way of long-term solutions at wide receiver. They also have an abundance of picks this year and could package two or three to move up and grab a quality player in a draft class deep at wideout.
