Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin told Pro Football Talk that he’d retire before putting on another jersey. There’s a chance the Ravens will cut Boldin this offseason, and if they do he’ll reportedly call it a career. “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.” Boldin was huge for the Ravens last season, specifically in the playoffs and Super Bowl. During the regular season the 32-year-old caught 65 passes for 921 yards and four touchdowns. Over the first three games of the playoffs he caught 16 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns. He was then targeted 10 times in the Super Bowl, catching six passes for 104 yards and a score. Despite his importance, the Ravens will consider cutting the veteran wide out this offseason as they’re going to be up against it when it comes to the salary cap. It will be interesting to see how Baltimore handles Boldin and if the wide receiver follows through on his comments and retires if cut.
