Here's A Fun Tyrod Taylor Fact As Anquan Boldin Signs Bills Contract

The Buffalo Bills made a critical move Monday that should make an immediate impact on their passing game as they signed veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year contract that could be worth $4 million if all the incentives are met. He finished last season with 67 receptions for 584 yards and eight touchdowns for the Detroit Lions.

At Baltimore, Boldin actually caught the first pass completion of Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor's career in 2011.

Boldin then played with the 49ers from 2013 to 2015 before landing with the Lions previous year.

Beane said the addition of Boldin is not a knock against any depth players at the position on the team now.

Now, Boldin, who sandwiched three seasons with the Ravens from 2010 to 2012 between seven seasons with the Arizona Cardinals (2003-09) and three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers (2013-15) before joining the Lions in 2016, will be reunited with Taylor in Buffalo. "Another thing is that this was an important family decision", Beane said.

Boldin is 14th in National Football League history in receiving yards with 13,779 since breaking into the National Football League in 2003, and is second to Larry Fitzgerald (14,389) of the Arizona Cardinals among active players.

"I've been a big Anquan fan from afar so even if I had the likes of Jerry Rice and guys like that on this team, to get an Anquan, it's an addition and has zero to do with where our receivers are".

In 2008, he helped the Ravens bring home a Super Bowl title, scoring four touchdowns in four playoff games. Look at the history and names there, it's pretty remarkable.
