October 5, 2014; Santa Clara, CA, USA; San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin (81) runs with the football during the first quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs at Levi

WR: Anquan Boldin Baltimore Raven 2010-2012

Boldin provided that tough, go to guy the Ravens desperately needed after the departure of Derrick Mason. Many fans will not forget his performance in the playoffs and the Super Bowl. Up against the salary cap the Ravens were looking at potentially losing Boldin as a free agent. Many fans were upset when he was eventually traded to the San Francisco 49ers before the 2013 season for a sixth round pick #199 overall. In 2013 Boldin turned in his first 1,000 yard season since leaving the Cardinals and is currently a starting WR for the 49ers with 540 receiving yards through the halfway point in the season.
