The San Francisco 49ers are close to agreeing on a contract to keep wide receiver Anquan Boldin, according to multiple reports.

It was reported last week that the two sides wanted to get a deal done before free agency begins on March 11.

Boldin, 33, is coming off a season in which he made 85 receptions for 1,179 yards with seven touchdowns.

The 49ers acquired Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens after the 2012 season for a sixth-round draft pick.

Boldin will enter his 12th season in the NFL. For his career, he has 857 catches for 11,344 yards with 65 receiving TDs.
