Just moments after the Seattle Seahawks made their move, trading a package of picks to the Minnesota Vikings for Percy Harvin, the 49ers respond by trading a sixth round draft pick to the Baltimore Ravens in exchange for WR Anquan Boldin! The 49ers were already a dominate team, but now they have one of the best receivers in the game, who is not afraid to catch the ball over the middle, and is a great red zone receiver.
The way Colin Kaepernick turned Michael Crabtree into a top flight wide receiver last season turned heads, and providing him with another weapon like Boldin boosts the entire 49ers offensive talents fantasy values. This opens up the field even more for Frank Gore who rushed for 1214 yards and 8 TDs last season. How can you possible guard Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis while even thinking about stopping Gore and containing Kaepernick. Look out NFL.
Boldin was going to be cut by the Ravens as they could not hold onto him after signing Joe Flacco to that ridiculous contract, making him the leagues highest paid player.
This has been a great start to the NFL offseason which doesn’t even officially begin (free agency) until tomorrow!
