One of the top wide receivers in the NFL since being selected in the 2003 NFL Draft, free agent wide receiver Anquan Boldin visited the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, ESPN’s John Keim and others reported.
In his career, Boldin has totaled 1,009 receptions for 13,195 yards and 74 touchdowns.
Boldin burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2003, catching 101 passes for 1,377 yards and eight touchdowns.
The 6-foot-1, 220 pounder has seven 1,000-yard seasons to his credit along with three Pro Bowl appearances and was named the 2003 Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Against the Detroit Lions on Sept. 7, 2003, his NFL debut, Boldin recorded 10 receptions for 217 yards and two touchdowns.
It was the most receiving yards recorded by an NFL rookie wide receiver in their first game and also tied Billy Simms for the most yardage from scrimmage in a rookie’s first game.
He would record more than 100 yards in two additional games that season.
Boldin would record a career-high 11 touchdown receptions during the 2008 season including three against the Miami Dolphins in Week 2.
On March 10, 2010, Boldin was traded to the Ravens.
In his three seasons with the Ravens, Boldin totaled 2,645 yards and 14 touchdowns.
In the Ravens’ Super Bowl XLVII victory over the 49ers, Boldin recorded six receptions for 104 yards and a touchdown.
Boldin has spent the past three years with the 49ers, where he’s hauled in 16 touchdowns during that span.
The Florida State product is one of 13 NFL players all-time with 1,000 career receptions, just eight receptions behind former Cardinals teammate Larry Fitzgerald.
