Quantcast

The Baltimore Ravens may be playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but there has been repeated talks of their offseason plans. Between signing Joe Flacco, and/or letting Ed Reed walk, the Ravens apparently have other plans; this time at the wide receiver position. On NFL Live today, Adam Schefter said that the team may "very well" choose to release Anquan Boldin.

LarryBrownSports.com made the case as to why the Ravens may do so. The team is going to be $5 million over the salary cap next year. Joe Flacco's presumed big contract needs to be taken into consideration at this point, because it's going to take up a lot of space. Boldin ibos scheduled to make $6 million next year. By cutting him though, the team would save $5.5 million.

Boldin's production has decreased since signing with Baltimore. He has not made the Pro Bowl since joining the club (compared to his 3 appearances with the Arizona Cardinals) and seems to have been under the radar. However, he has been a major factor this postseason with 16 receptions for 276 yards and 3 touchdowns. Boldin's big game against the Patriots in the AFC Championship game proved to be vital in the Raven's victory.
