Anquan Boldin was selected in the second round of the 2003 NFL Draft (53rd overall) by the Arizona Cardinals. He would go on to play 14 seasons with Arizona, Baltimore, San Francisco and Detroit. He was in training camp with the Buffalo Bills in 2017 before retiring from the game at the age of 36.
He caught 1,076 career receptions for 13,779 receiving yards and 82 career receiving touchdowns. He played in two Super Bowls in 2008 and 2012, and was a member of the world-champion Baltimore Ravens, catching six balls for 104 yards and a 13-yard touchdown from Joe Flacco to help his team to a 34-31 win over San Francisco in Super Bowl XLVII.
In 2015, the three-time Pro Bowler was selected as the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year.
Anquan is also a follower of Jesus Christ and shared his Christian testimony with The Increase.
This is his story.
Thank you all fans, teams and my NFL brothers for the well wishes. It's truly been an honor to be apart of the league the last 14 seasons. Q pic.twitter.com/kMFxYlkIO7
