Anquan Boldin signing with Bills

Anquan Boldin signing with Bills

Buffalo's patience with Boldin was rewarded Monday as Boldin signed with the Bills. Boldin made a visit to Buffalo on July 24. "Another thing is that this was an important family decision", Beane said.

It will be interesting to see how the Bills wide receiver depth chart shakes out as Andre Holmes, Philly Brown, Rod Streater and Brandon Tate are all battling with Boldin, Watkins and Jones for the remaining spots on the final 53-man roster. He seems like a flawless fit to go into the slot for the Bills, with Jones and Watkins on the outside. He won't be asked to be an every-down receiver by the Bills. "He did add that the 6-foot-2, 218-pounder would be 'up and running" quicker than any free agent wide receiver they could have signed off of the street and said that he'd play outside as well as in the slot. Even if I had the likes of Jerry Rice or guys like that.to get an Anquan is an addition. "He's a pro's pro". He has a wife and two sons aged 13 and 7. Everybody was very confident the Bills were a good fit, but I knew he had other options out there. "Sean (McDermott) and I preach family, culture and character so I think he had to talk that out with his wife and kids". The Bills will be his fifth team since being drafted in the second round (No. 54 overall) by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2003 NFL Draft. He moved on to Baltimore in 2010 and spent three years there, helping the Ravens win the championship following the 2012 season. He was a part-time player with the Lions last season, and still was a valuable asset. To his credit, though, Boldin led the Lions with eight touchdown receptions last term, and has never caught under 55 passes or gone for under 580 yards in any season. "The great thing about Anquan is what he brings on the field and off the field". He is ninth in National Football League history in receptions (1,076) and third among active players behind Fitzgerald (1,125) and Jason Witten (1,089). Look at the history and names there, it's pretty remarkable.
