Anquan Boldin has been one of the top offensive performers for the Baltimore Ravens this postseason and has helped lead them to the Super Bowl. It would be hard to imagine the Ravens playing without him in the future, but that might end up being the case. Per Rotoworld, ESPN’s Adam Schefter said on “NFL Live” Thursday that the Ravens may end up releasing Boldin after the Super Bowl because of salary cap issues they’re facing. Schefter says the Ravens are $5 million over the salary cap for next season, and that’s without factoring in a new deal for quarterback Joe Flacco. Boldin is scheduled to earn $6 million next season. Cutting him reportedly would save the team $5.5 million against the salary cap. Though releasing Boldin is not something Baltimore would want to do, it’s something they may have to do. Boldin was acquired in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals after the 2009 season for a third and fourth-round pick. Though he has not recorded a 1,000-yard season with the team, he has 14 touchdown catches. He also has five touchdown catches in seven playoff games with the team, including three this postseason.
