6:45 P.M. UPDATE: BOLDIN TELLS ESPN THAT RAVENS HAVE NOT CONTACTED HIM

UPDATE 2: BOLDIN TRADED TO 49ERS

Original story below:

Anquan Boldin could soon be an NFL free agent, an unexpected turn from a receiver who said he would rather retire than sign with another team.

Boldin has rejected a proposal from the Ravens to lower his salary, and he’s currently preparing to become an unrestricted free agent if released, according to USA Today.

Boldin, 32, is entering the last year of a four-year deal.  He’s due to receive a $6 million base salary this season.

Boldin’s cap number for 2013 is $7.531 million and the organization is trying to free up room to keep projected free agent linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, among other maneuvers.

After the Ravens’ thrilling victory in Super Bowl XLVII victory against the San Francisco 49ers, Boldin told NBC Sports Radio that he would retire if the Ravens let him go.

UPDATE: FLACCO SAYS BOLDIN SHOULD ‘STICK TO HIS GUNS’

Now, it seems he’s rethought that statement.

The Ravens’ proposal to the 10-year veteran reportedly did not include an extension.

Boldin played a key role in the Ravens’ postseason run, scoring four TDs and averaging 17.3 yards on 22 catches. During the Super Bowl, the star wide receiver made two critical third-down receptions to set up a pair of fourth-quarter field goals.

During a press conference on Monday, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said the structure of his recently-signed contract made him hopeful the club could hang on to Boldin.

“He’s a big part of this offense,” Flacco said. “He’s a big reason why I’m standing here talking to you guys.”
