Anquan Boldin’s contribution to the NFL, and the Ravens in particular, is all-time. In those three years with the Ravens, Boldin amassed 186 catches for 2,645 yards and 14 touchdowns.
He also adds eight post-season games, in which he produced 616 yards on 38 receptions and six touchdowns. Safe to say, Boldin is a post-season machine.
Boldin will always be remembered as a Raven and more importantly, remembered for his absolutely disrespectful touchdown catch against the New England Patriots in the 2012 divisional round at Gillette Stadium.
In 2015, Boldin also received the Walter Payton Man of the Year award.
The Anquan Boldin Foundation is loaded with programs, from Thanksgiving food drives which offer 300 meals annually to a summer enrichment program and a golf tournament which has raised over $100,000 annually. They also have done holiday shopping sprees. In 2015, the Foundation (also known as Q81) awarded five students scholarships of $10,000.
