So here we are, a couple of weeks removed from the signing of the most ridiculous contract in NFL history.  The same contract that will ultimately tear the Baltimore Ravens apart. In hopes to move pieces around so they can afford to keep as many players as possible, the Baltimore Ravens traded Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers on Monday. The 49ers acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Ravens for a sixth round draft pick. Now Boldin is not a top 10 receiver, as a matter of fact he is a poor mans T.O.,  but is worthy of more than just a sixth round draft pick.  Unfortately for the Ravens, Flacco put them in a position that they have to ake what they can get.
