Bills Officially Release WR Anquan Boldin From Reserve/Retired List


The Buffalo Bills officially released veteran WR Anquan Boldin from the reserve/retired list Wednesday.

Reports from last year mentioned that Boldin wanted to come out of retirement to join a contending team, but a trade was never struck.

Boldin, 37, 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 contract with the Lions last July. Boldin signed another one-year deal with the Bills a few weeks ago worth $2.75 million.

For his career, Boldin played 14 seasons for the Cardinals, Ravens, 49ers and Lions. He caught 1,076 passes for 13,779 yards receiving to go along with 82 touchdowns. He was a three-time Pro Bowl selection.
