Default Source: Ravens to cut Boldin if he won't take pay cut

"A source told FOXSports.com that the Ravens want wide receiver Anquan Boldin to renegotiate the $6 million base salary he is set to earn in 2013. Otherwise, Boldin will be released before Tuesday’s start of the free-agent signing period."

From the same article......"During a February interview with NBC Sports Radio, Boldin said he would retire if released by Baltimore. A source, though, said Boldin is having second thoughts about that statement."

That was then (right after the SB win). A "loyalty statement." This is now. Money does funny things to retirement plans.

Kind of ridiculous that this guy made big play after big play for them during their SB run and their reward for him is to cut him or back him into a corner to restructure.

Nice lol. Pretty sure they are still like $12 mil under the cap though. Still have to re-sign Ellerbe, Cary Williams, and maybe Reed.

Looks like Boldin is gone. I look for the Patriots and Broncos to make a strong push for Boldin. The Ratbirds made a terrible decision on letting boldin go. He bailed out Flacco a whole lot. The dude is a beast.

Come on Rick! Make it happen!

Finances: Cut wide receiver Kevin Walter, saving $2.5 million in cap space. Restructure the deal of wide receiver Andre Johnson, reducing his base salary from $10.5 million to $940,000 (giving him the rest now as a bonus), resulting in a salary-cap savings of $7.17 million. Restructure the deal of cornerback Johnathan Joseph, reducing his base salary from $7.5 million to $940,000 (giving him the rest now as a bonus), resulting in a salary-cap savings of $4.373 million. Extend defensive end Antonio Smith, reducing his 2013 base salary of $6 million and his cap charge of $9.5 million significantly.

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/90...cture-contract

Quote:
Wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who played a big role in Baltimore's run to its second Super Bowl title this decade, tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Ravens have not asked him to restructure his contract.

Boldin said on Saturday that Baltimore might have to do a restructuring of some sort, but to this point and his knowledge, the Ravens have not.

As for his future, Boldin told Schefter that he would speak with his family before he makes any decisions, but as far as he is concerned and knows, he is planning to play for Baltimore next season under the terms of his current contract.

Boldin is scheduled to earn $6 million in the coming season. He carries a $7.531 million salary-cap figure.

Fox Sports initially reported Saturday that Baltimore gave Boldin an ultimatum: Take a pay cut or get cut on Tuesday. USA Today Sports later reported that Boldin had rejected Baltimore's offer but that the sides were still discussing the matter, and that Boldin is prepared to test free agency if Baltimore releases him.

ESPN and other media outlets have reported that the Ravens do want to reduce Boldin's salary as they try to free cap space to retain free-agent linebacker Dannell Ellerbe.

The Ravens were expected to keep Boldin after the team didn't have to use the franchise tag on quarterback Joe Flacco, who signed a six-year, $120.6 million deal.

In the playoffs, Boldin caught 22 passes for 380 yards receiving (95 yards per game) and four touchdowns. He has led Baltimore in receiving yards in each of the past three seasons since being traded from Arizona.

Boldin, 32, said last month that he would retire if he was cut by the Ravens. Since the Ravens won the Super Bowl, linebacker Ray Lewis and center Matt Birk have retired and Baltimore has released guard Bobbie Williams.

Default Re: Source: Ravens to cut Boldin if he won't take pay cut

That'd be pretty epic to grab one of their best players, rather than them getting one of ours.

Boldin and AJ, with OD/Graham/Casey/K-Mart would be a nice receiver crew.

Right now, Boldin would be the only free agent WR I would want to put on this struggling offense. Maybe Welker would be an option, too, since he is a great "safety valve" option for a QB. And we know Matt needs one of those every snap.

We'd have to make some massive contract overhauls, though.

Flacco has his back

Quote:
"Without him, we don't win the Super Bowl. He's a huge part of this team and someone I want to see back," Flacco told USA TODAY Sports. "Obviously, when you're a player of his caliber, you believe you're worth a number and that's what you should get. He's going to stick to his guns, and that's the way it should be.

Funny you say that, Kurt Warner offered the Cardinals a 1 million discount if they re-signed Boldin long term. He got traded to Baltimore instead...
