According to Aaron Wilson of Ravens Insider, Ravens WR Anquan Boldin has been traded to the San Francisco 49ers for a sixth round draft pick. News that the Ravens were trying to trade Boldin broke earlier today, and they apparently wasted no time pulling the trigger.
Anquan Boldin traded to 49ers for a sixth-round pick

Boldin said he would consider retiring if the Ravens didn’t re-sign him, then retracted and said he’s open to weighing his options. But I highly doubt anyone saw this trade coming. Boldin now joins the team that he helped the Ravens beat in the Super Bowl, and makes the 49ers that much more dangerous for the 2013 season.
