We’ve heard from Jim Harbaugh that re-signing Anquan Boldin was priority number one and the latest report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter proves just that. Schefter is reporting that it looks like Anquan Boldin will not get a chance to hit the free agent market as both sides are closing in on a deal.
Doesn't sound like Anquan Boldin going anywhere. Two sides closing in on deal to keep Boldin in SF, per sources. Deal expected to get done.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise after news broke that the NFL Salary Cap increased to $132 million. That gave the 49ers more breathing room to lock up Boldin and keep him in Red and Gold for a few more years.
Now we just wait for the official word when that deal has been signed.
