Super Bowl winner Boldin hints at retirement.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin has revealed he is contemplating retirement should the Ravens cut him this off-season.
The news was broken by NBC Sports Network’s Eric Kuselias Sr. on Twitter on Friday, with Boldin later confirming his decision.
“I won’t play in another uniform. Baltimore is the only place I want to play. It’s the last place I will play. For me, I’ll retire a Raven, I’m not putting on any other uniform,” Boldin told Pro Football Talk.
The 10-year veteran has one year left on his current four-year deal worth $25 million, and despite impressing in the post season the three-time Pro Bowler could be on his way out after being mentioned as a potential salary cap casualty.
With Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco reportedly negotiating a long-term contract which should see him among the top earners for quarter backs in the NFL, competition elsewhere is also a cause for concern for Boldin.
The emergence of wide receiver Torrey Smith and Super Bowl hero Jacoby Jones coupled with the likely re-signing of Dennis Pitta, all point toward a possible split.
Considering his performances last season, Boldin would likely be in high demand in the free-agent market, but it appears for now he is set to either continue as a Raven or call time on his career.
