Trent Baalke found that coveted, experienced wide receiver for San Francisco in the first of five trades he pulled off during a whirlwind Day 2 of the NFL draft, acquiring Stevie Johnson from Buffalo.
San Francisco receiver Anquan Boldin's foundation is the recipient of a $100,000 grant from the players union for winning the Byron "Whizzer" White Award.
While chatter has swirled about Jim Harbaugh's future with the 49ers in recent weeks, wide receiver Anquan Boldin has secured his status in San Francisco - and even credited the coach for his decision to come back.
Patrick Willis took the high road. He hopes the Seattle Seahawks win the Super Bowl and represent their division and the NFC.
Anquan Boldin easily outjumped Earl Thomas in the end zone on a go-ahead 26-yard touchdown catch, and the San Francisco 49ers answered the Seattle Seahawks with a big play to take a 17-13 lead after three quarters in Sunday's NFC championship game.

There was nowhere for Redskins cornerback Josh Wilson to hide. Assigned for much of the night to cover San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who has four inches and 30 pounds on him, Wilson was beaten on consecutive plays in the first quarter, the second a 19-yard touchdown pass to Boldin. Early in the second quarter, tight end Vernon Davis also beat Wilson for a 40-yard catch. That play led to a field goal and a 10-0 lead for the 49ers. They were well on the way to an easy 27-6 victory over Washington at FedEx Field.
The Redskins could not compete in any facet with the 49ers, and in turn the team must officially consider 2013 a lost season.

"He's a guy I had a real good relationship with," Boldin said about Harbaugh on a conference call with reporters. "Me and him were able to talk about anything. And I just like his demeanor, the way he approaches the game. He's a guy that wants to win. I'm the exact same way. So I think we mesh pretty good."
"Physically, I feel fine," he said. "I feel as if I can play five more years. So that's not a problem for me. I feel great. But we'll see how it goes."
