The Buffalo Bills made a roster move on Monday to address their depth at wide receiver by signing veteran Anquan Boldin to a one-year deal.
Boldin will give the Bills an established compliment to line up beside top wideout Sammy Watkins. In 16 games last season, Boldin recorded 67 catches and led the Detroit Lions in receiving touchdowns with eight.
Boldin, who will turn 37 in October, immediately becomes the most accomplished wideout on the Bills’ roster. In addition to the Super Bowl ring he earned with the Baltimore Ravens in 2012, Boldin is also a three-time Pro Bowler (2003, 2006, 2008) and was named the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2003. The 15-year veteran ranks ninth all-time in receptions and 14th in NFL history in receiving yards.
To make room for Boldin, the Bills designated tight end Keith Towbridge as waived/injured.
