Bills news: Anquan Boldin announces retirement after 14 seasons

Anquan Boldin

It has been just over a week since the Buffalo Bills signed veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year deal.

However, Boldin’s tenure with the Bills has quickly come to an end, as he has reportedly decided to retire after 14 seasons in the NFL, according to Jim Trotter of ESPN.

Boldin played in just one preseason game with the Bills, making one catch on three targets for five yards before deciding to retire. In his last NFL season, he played with the Detroit Lions, making 67 catches for 584 receiving yards while playing in all 16 regular season games.

This wraps up a highly productive NFL career that saw Boldin finish ranked 14th all-time in receiving yards with 13,779. He also finished ninth all-time with 1,076 receptions with 82 touchdowns while playing for the Bills, Lions, San Francisco 49ers, Baltimore Ravens, and Arizona Cardinals. He had six seasons with 1,000 receiving yards and 11 campaigns with at least 65 catches.

He also holds various NFL records, such as most receptions for a rookie (101), most receiving yards in a first career game (217), and he had set the mark for the fastest player to reach the reception marks of 200, 300, 400, and 500. Boldin is also the fifth-fastest NFL player to record 7,000 receiving yards.
