Baltimore Ravens Will Release Anquan Boldin After Super Bowl XLVII?
 

 
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After Super Bowl XLVII, linebacker Ray Lewis probably won’t be the only one not returning to the Baltimore Ravens for the 2013 season. It’s been reported that there is a possibility that wide receiver Anquan Boldin could be released in order to make more room for Baltimore’s salary cap this coming offseason.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome will have a lot to consider after the Super Bowl. The potential release of Boldin will leave the door open for Baltimore’s organization to give quarterback Joe Flacco the big contract that he desires. However, Newsome still has the option of slapping the franchise tag on Flacco, which will be worth about $14.6 million. Either way, the Ravens will need breathing room in their salary cap to compensate Flacco’s salary for 2013.

With all of the money that will more than likely be tied up in the Ravens’ quarterback, and a.ssuming that Boldin won’t be with the team next season, Baltimore will need to figure out how to fill the void at receiver.

Boldin is definitely a great compliment to fellow receiver Torrey Smith, but looking at their roster, the Ravens will either have to find a replacement through free agency, or via the draft.

Personally, I think that they are better off searching for a receiver in the draft in the event that Boldin is released. Looking at the free agent receivers that come close to matching the level of talent of Boldin (Greg Jennings, Dwayne Bowe, Mike Wallace), Baltimore will have to spend a pretty penny to acquire them.

There even could be a possibility that wide receiver could be the Ravens’ number one priority in this year’s draft.

Newsome knows how to pick talent, so there shouldn’t be anything to worry about if they choose to get a receiver in the draft. Furthermore, the emergence of Flacco will make it easier for Baltimore to attract free agent receivers

Regardless of what happens, the Ravens’ offense should be just fine.

Yea read this before the super bowl...don't see how they can keep him

Now that we got Kaep Id love to have boldin. We need somebody who can take the top of a defense but can't pass on him if he's available

I don't think yall can though. If you franchise Flacco you'll be 20 million over the cap...that's if you franchise him. If you sign him to the deal he's looking for it will be more. Here's a better article

Baltimore wide receiver Anquan Boldin has been a playoff difference maker, catching 16 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns through three postseason wins. But Sunday’s Super Bowl may be his last game in a Ravens uniform due to Baltimore’s forthcoming salary cap issues.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter stated on NFL Live Thursday that the Ravens currently project to be $5 million over the 2013 salary cap. And that’s before they address quarterback Joe Flacco’s contract situation, which at the very least will involve applying a $14.6 million franchise tag. At that point, Baltimore would soar to nearly $20 million over the cap.

The Ravens will soon face some difficult decisions, one being the future of Boldin. Releasing Boldin would free up $5.5 million in cap space, and Schefter said it “very well” may happen.

Cutting fellow receiver Jacoby Jones would create another $3.5 million in cap room.

Schefter also stated that Baltimore’s cap woes could cost the franchise an opportunity to re-sign impending free agent linebacker Paul Kruger. Kruger has been the Ravens’ best pass rusher this season. If Kruger hit the market, he’d be the top available “rush linebacker“ in 2013 free agency.
