Should the Houston Texans make a move for Anquan Boldin?
One of the top free agents that’s still available is veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
The 36 year-old Boldin proved last season that he can still be a big contributor in the NFL as he hauled in 67 receptions for 584 yards and eight touchdowns.
Boldin has made it clear that he wants to keep playing while talking to CBS Sports’ Jamey Eisenberg.
"“I’m still healthy, still going strong,” Boldin said at his charity golf event for the Q81 Foundation, which helps raise money for underprivileged children in his hometown of Pahokee, Florida. “I still have the passion.”"
Eisenberg says the Baltimore Ravens and the Detroit Lions are interested in bringing Boldin back.
The great thing about a player like Boldin is that he’s never relied on his speed to get open the way most wide receivers do.
Boldin is purely a possession receiver that gets open by being physical with opposing defenders and running great routes. This is what’s let him play so far into his 30’s.

When thinking about the Houston Texans, Boldin may not be a bad option for them.
Yes I know the Texans already have DeAndre Hopkins, Will Fuller and Braxton Miller.
But Boldin could come in as a number two receiver and really help Fuller develop as a player while helping Houston’s passing game overall at the same time.
