DeCosta: Anquans A Raven
Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin recently said on Pro Football Talk, Once a Raven, always a Raven.
Ravens assistant G.M. Eric DeCosta agrees. Anquans a Raven, DeCosta said during Thursdays edition of Pro Football Talk on NBC Sports Network. Boldin has been the subject of speculation regarding a possible parting of the ways, given his $6 million base salary in 2013.
Hes a great playmaker who played really really well for us down the stretch, DeCosta added. As I said the offseason is really a series of different moves that all kind of depend on each other. So well see, our intention is to have Anquan on the team next year. Hes a playmaker for us. Hes a tough guy. We love his mentality provides unbelievable intangibles for us in the locker room as a leader and we expect him to be with us next year.
Boldin has said that if the Ravens cut him, hell retire. As a practical matter, that gives the team a little extra leverage in the potential negotiations aimed at cutting his cap number.
