“49er fans, I wanted to be the first to tell you that I’m returning to San Francisco,” Boldin wrote on his website. “Looking forward to joining my teammates, coaching staff and fans to bring back another championship to the Bay Area. Let’s go after our Quest For Six.”
The team’s other top receiver, Michael Crabtree, missed 11 games last season, paving the way for Boldin to get loose for 85 catches, 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns. The 33-year-old is unlikely to replicate those numbers in 2014, but he’s still an important part of balancing out a passing attack that also will also likely include Quinton Patton, Vernon Davis and Crabtree.
