Wide receiver Anquan Boldin said he would retire if released by the Baltimore Ravens. Well, it looks like he'll either take a pay cut or hang up the cleats.

The Ravens have asked Boldin to reduce his $6 million base salary. He'll be released if he declines, according to FoxSports.com's Alex Marvez. Boldin counts $7.5 million against the cap.

There's not much optimism, as sources told the Baltimore Sun's Aaron Wilson, "Unless something dramatic happens, it's an absolutely done deal that Anquan will be released."

Boldin has been a perfect fit in Baltimore. He's been the sure-handed, crisp route-running complement to Torrey Smith's deep threat. Boldin caught six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Super Bowl and had 65 receptions for 921 yards and four touchdowns during the regular season.

The Ravens are working for cap room, but the three-time Pro Bowl selection might have the strongest hands in the league -- even at 32 years old. The offense will miss Boldin if an agreement isn't reached. Jacoby Jones is next on the depth chart.

It's hard to imagine that Boldin would actually retire, considering he would be a legit top-two receiver on most teams.

UPDATE: Boldin told USA Today on Saturday that he "loves" the Ravens, but said he doesn't want to take a pay cut.

Wow, Boldin was clutch for the Ravens. I'm not sure they get to or win the Super Bowl without him. And they want him to take a pay cut right after making Flacco the highest paid player in the NFL? LOL. I think if you're going to ask a player to take a pay cut, it should be a player who is underperforming, or one who has been injured a lot. Basically, someone who isn't earning his money.


If you're going to be a smart ass, you'd better be smart. Otherwise, you're just an ass.
