Boldin agreed to terms last week but backed out of the deal before deciding to join the Bills this week.
Following the 2016 season with the Detroit Lions, veteran free agent wide receiver Anquan Boldin was contemplating retirement from the National Football League, despite being torn about whether or not he wanted to continue playing. "Sean and I preach family".
The addition of Boldin provides a proven scoring weapon in Buffalo's passing offense. He'll pair with top wideout Sammy Watkins and rookie Zay Jones to give the Bills an interesting array of weapons for quarterback Tyrod Taylor. It was our job to help him with all the facts of how he could fit his family into Buffalo.
Boldin began his career with the Arizona Cardinals as a 2003 second-round draft pick out of Florida State. The two won a Super Bowl together in Baltimore, but they'll have their work cut out for them with the Bills, who are aiming to dethrone the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in the AFC East. He moved on to Baltimore in 2010 and spent three years there, helping the Ravens win the championship following the 2012 season. You're talking about a (Walter Payton) Man of the Year and he's ninth all-time in receptions.
Boldin struggled to get separation from defenders last season, but he continued to be reliable, catching 67 passes for 584 yards and a team-high 8 touchdowns for the Lions. "In my opinion, he's a Hall of Famer and he'll teach guys how to be a pro".
