When the Cardinals play in Baltimore on Sunday the team
will see a familiar face on the other sideline.
Wideout Anquan Boldin played the first seven seasons of
his career with the Cardinals before being traded to the
Ravens prior to the 2010 campaign, and while this could be
looked at as a big game for Boldin the receiver says he is
treating this game just like any other.
“You know it’s a 16 game season,” Boldin said. “We take it
one week at a time. Whoever the opponent is coming up we
treat them the same way.”
Boldin admits he doesn’t even follow his former team
“I’m a Raven,” Boldin said. “That’s who I pay attention
to; everything else is irrelevant to me.”
However, Boldin does confess that playing without Larry
Fitzgerald has been an adjustment.
“It’s been different especially for us,” Boldin said. “We
were together for six out of my seven years so there’s
definitely that comfort zone having each other on opposite
sides, but we both know this is a business and
unfortunately things like that happen so you just got to
move on and keep playing.”
Boldin racked up 7,520 yards and 44 touchdowns with the
Cardinals and has tallied 91 catches for 1,231 yards and
nine touchdowns in 22 games with the Ravens.
