Anquan Boldin traded: Ravens send WR to 49ers for 6th round pick, according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Baltimore Ravens have reportedly traded receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers. The trade is expected to send a sixth round pick to the Ravens for Boldin, who was one of the Ravens key players in their Super Bowl run.

The Baltimore Ravens were expected to cut Anquan Boldin if they couldn't work out a contract restructure him. Instead they traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a sixth round pick, according to a report.

The Ravens wanted to slash part of Boldin's salary for the upcoming season and as recently as Monday afternoon it was reported that Boldin's chances of staying in Baltimore weren't good. Boldin has one year left on his contract that will pay him $6 million.

Boldin was key for the Ravens in their 2012 season, starting 15 games and catching 65 passes for 921 yards. As Ravens fans know, Boldin was critical to the Ravens Super Bowl victory, catching seven balls for 104 yards and a touchdown. The Ravens now have an extra sixth round pick and receive some salary cap relief by pushing Boldin's contract off the books.

Boldin is actually the second receiver to be traded on Monday after the Vikings dealt Percy Harvin to the Seahawks.
