The Baltimore Sun reported earlier week that the Baltimore Ravens were looking to sign receiver Anquan Boldin to a contract extension in order to reduce his salary cap number. As it stands, Boldin would make $7.5 million in 2013, and the  Ravens may be forced to cut Boldin if he doesn’t agree to a contract that would reduce his salary.

Now, Boldin is saying that if the Ravens do decide to cut him, he will retire this offseason, at the age of 32 and coming off his best season as a Raven. He has 772 career receptions for 10,165 yards and 58 touchdowns. It would be unfortunate to see a potential hall-of-famer call it quits over a contract dispute.
