Free agent-to-be Boldin curious to see 49ers' offense under Kelly
Anquan Boldin may have played his last game with the San Francisco 49ers, but he's intrigued by what new coach Chip Kelly will bring to the team's offense.
“I think everybody is,” Boldin told reporters Tuesday. “I think it’s always that way when you have a new coach coming in. Everybody is curious about a number of different things, so we’ll see how that plays out.”
Boldin, 35, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after completing the final season of a three-year contact. He put up consecutive 1,000-yard seasons in 2013 and 2014 before he was limited to 69 receptions for 789 yards this past season.
A finalist for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for outstanding contributions on and off the field, Boldin said the thought of becoming a free agent is not high on his list.
"I haven’t talked to anybody, yet," Boldin said. "Honestly, I’m not to the point where I feel like I have to deal with that right now. I’ll deal with it when the time comes. But, right now, that’s not something that’s on my plate.”
