For days since the Super Bowl ended we’ve been reporting that Ravens star receiver Anquan Boldin could be a cap casualty in the teams quest to get salary cap room, and most importantly, sign Joe Flacco to a long-term deal.
Well Boldin reportedly dropped a bombshell today when he was guest on Pro Football Talk life with Erik Kuselias. Kuselias is reporting that Boldin told him he will retire if the Ravens release him, rather than go through the motions with another franchise.
“For me that’s not something that I worry about,” Boldin told Erik Kuselias of Pro Football Talk. “I think you go out and let your play speak for itself. You deal with that if you have to, but, I think for m — I know for me — Baltimore is the only place I want to play. It’s the last place that I will play. For me, I’ll retire a Raven, I’m not putting on any other uniform.”
“I won’t play in another uniform,” Boldin said. “We have a saying, once a Raven, always a Raven, and I’ll always be a Raven.”
I have no idea if Boldin is bluffing or not. I plan to be listening to the interview as well. Boldin has accomplished a lot in his career, playing in two Super Bowls, and finally winning one.
We will definitely see how this plays out.
