Anquan Boldin: Looking to sign contract before training camp

Boldin said on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM on Monday that he would "prefer to sign [with a team] right before training camp."

Boldin, now 36 years old, admitted he's intentionally waiting to sign a contract partly in order to limit the wear and tear he puts on his body. However, he referred to training camp as a "necessary evil" that all players -- even 15-year veterans -- need to go through to fully prepare for the season ahead. Following the same course of action in 2016, Boldin ultimately signed with the Lions just days before training camp and went on to post 67 receptions for 584 receiving yards and a team-high eight touchdowns across 16 games. The receiver didn't hint at where he might land this time around, instead saying he's simply looking for the best fit for him and his family.
