It was reported on Saturday that Anquan Boldin refused the Ravens’ request for him to take a pay cut and was getting ready to hit free agency.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, there’s a 50-50 chance the Boldin will stay with the Ravens.
There’s a suspicion that Boldin’s agent is trying to get Boldin cut, which suggests that the agent may be aware of another team that is willing to pay Boldin more than the $6 million he’s due to earn in 2013.
In the end, Boldin’s status in Baltimore may turn on the question of whether the Ravens are willing to bite the bullet and pay Boldin $6 million this season. And whether Boldin, once he’s informed of the team’s final offer, is truly willing to walk away from the Ravens in lieu of taking less money.
