- Adam Schefter reports that Boldin receives a one-year, $2.75 million contract from Buffalo that includes $1.25 million in incentives.
The Bills hosted Boldin for a visit a few weeks ago but it appeared as though Buffalo was waiting for a decision from him about a potential deal.
Boldin, 36, is a former second-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2003. He spent seven years in Arizona before being traded to the Ravens in 2010. Baltimore later traded him to the 49ers where’s he’s remained for the past three seasons.
Boldin finished out his two-year, $12 million contract with the Ravens before signing a one-year, $2.75 million contract with the Lions last July.
In 2016, Boldin appeared in 16 games for the Lions and caught 67 passes for 584 yards receiving and eight touchdowns. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 70 overall receiver out of 115 qualifying players.
