The Buffalo Bills are adding veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin, according to a report from Peter Schrager of Fox Sports. Boldin should provide veteran leadership to a very young receiving corps in Buffalo this season.

According to Schrager’s report, it is a one-year deal between the Bills and Boldin.

Boldin was the second-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2003, playing seven seasons for the team with three Pro Bowl appearances. He then spent three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, followed by three with the San Francisco 49ers. Boldin played for the Detroit Lions last year. He has 1,076 receptions in his career for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns.

Boldin should come in and give the Bills a solid possession type of receiver who can be used for short yardage, crossing and slant routes, as well as screens.
