Madden said Denver, Seattle and Kansas City have all scored big in the free agency scramble.
The 49ers and Seahawks seem to be positioning themselves for a two-team race, and we’re not talking about the NFC West — we’re talking about the NFC, period.
The San Francisco 49ers made their trade of quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs official on Tuesday, nearly two weeks after the two sides agreed to it. Officials also confirmed Monday’s reported deal to add receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens.
On Monday, the Ravens pulled off a stunner of a deal when they traded wideout Anquan Boldin to the 49ers for a sixth-round pick.
Boldin, 32, had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens’ Super Bowl victory over the 49ers.
The San Francisco 49ers have obtained Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin in a trade, according to the Baltimore Sun and ESPN.
In the waning seconds of Super Bowl XLVII with the Ravens leading the 49ers 34-31, quarterback Joe Flacco had an idea: if San Francisco return man Ted Ginn looked like he was going to take the ensuing kick for a game-deciding touchdown, Flacco suggested aloud to teammates to “go tackle him.”
It’s been nearly a month since the Baltimore Ravens outlasted the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. And while most of the NFL is looking ahead to free agency and the draft, at least two players from the big game are still reveling in what was and reeling from what could’ve been.
The company that supplied electricity to the Super Bowl took the blame Friday for the power outage that brought the big game to a halt, explaining that a device designed specifically to prevent a blackout failed and plunged the game into darkness for more than half an hour.
There were only seven penalties called in the Super Bowl Sunday, despite other obvious infractions. “Did someone see (a penalty) and not call it, or did the official not see it,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew.
