Anquan Boldin will not join his former Ravens teammates at the White House on Wednesday to celebrate their Super Bowl win. Instead, Boldin will be with the 49ers in California, participating in their offseason workouts.
"Unfortunately I’m going to miss a great opportunity to be with my Super Bowl team at the White House,’’ Boldin wrote Monday on Twitter. `"I know those guys will proudly share our Super Bowl memories and unforgettable moments on my behalf.’’
Boldin was instrumental in helping the Ravens win the Super Bowl with six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown. During the playoffs, Boldin had 22 receptions for 380 yards and four touchdowns, and was a go-to guy for quarterback Joe Flacco in clutch situations. However, Boldin was traded during the offseason to the 49ers, and he will remain with his new team on Wednesday, although many of his thoughts will surely be with the Ravens.
Boldin will not be the only ex-Raven to miss Wednesday’s ceremony. Dennis Dixon and Cary Williams, now with the Eagles, will be at their mandatory minicamp, while Bernard Pollard, now with the Titans, has said he will not come either.
