Report: Anquan Boldin wants to play for 15th NFL season

The Detroit News,

Anquan Boldin is hoping to play football again next season, according to a report.

Jim Trotter of ESPN reports that the receiver, who played last season for the Lions, wants to return for a 15th season. He’s a free agent.

Boldin, who turns 37 in October, had 67 catches for 584 yards and a team-high eight touchdowns last season in Detroit. He has 1,076 catches for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns for his career, the first half of which was spent with the Arizona Cardinals.

Boldin said last month that, if he decided to hold off on retirement, he’d be open about a return to Detroit.

“I mean, it’s definitely interesting,” he said in February. “But for me, it’s seeing what opportunities lie there, going over them with my wife, because any decision I make does not just affect me. It affects me, my wife, my two boys. It’s something I have to take into consideration.”

The Lions signed receiver Keshawn Martin, a former Michigan State star, on Saturday.
