Anquan Boldin confirms signing with Detroit Lions

The Pro Bowl receiver took to social media to say his goodbyes to San Francisco and his hellos to Detroit.

Multiple sources throughout Tuesday confirmed the Detroit Lions would be signing Anquan Boldin to the team. However, the move did not appear on Tuesday’s official NFL transaction list, meaning the contract was not signed before the end of the official working day and the move was not yet official.

However, Boldin took to Twitter on Tuesday night to make the move official as possible:

Unsurprisingly, Boldin mentions Lions head coach Jim Caldwell as a key reason for joining Detroit. The two worked together with the Baltimore Ravens and by all accounts had a very close relationship.

Welcome to Detroit, Anquan. We hope you stay awhile.
