DeCosta: ?Anquan?s 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. ?Anquan?s a Raven,? DeCosta said during Thursday?s 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.

?He?s 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 we?ll see, our intention is to have Anquan on the team next year. He?s a playmaker for us. He?s 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, he?ll retire. As a practical matter, that gives the team a little extra leverage in the potential negotiations aimed at cutting his cap number.
