  • FA WR Anquan Boldin has had talks with a number of teams, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinal, has a visit set up with an undisclosed team, and would like to play for a contender in 2017.
  • Boldin played 830 snaps for the Lions in 2016 and though he was their third-most targeted receiver (88), he had by far the best catch rate (76.1 percent).
