Anquan Boldin and the 49ers are closing in on deal to keep Boldin in San Francisco, per sources.
While the return of Michael Crabtree signified Boldin's end as the team's No. 1 receiver, the 49ers would be wise to keep him and have him complete the 1-2 punch they've long-needed at the position. Last season, Boldin, despite being blanketed by double-coverage for the majority of the season led the team with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns.
