Here are some selected comments from Baltimore Ravens players on the trade of Anquan Boldin to San Francisco 49ers. This are from interviews to Baltimore reporters (via The Associated Press) before Monday's premiere of the season highlights film ...
Quarterback Joe Flacco: "Anquan was a great receiver for myself and for our football team. It's sad to see a guy like that go, but at the same time you want what's best for him and you just wish him the best of luck.Anquan was a big part of this football team, a big part of this offense. He's one of the main reasons we won the Super Bowl this year."
Wide receiver Jacoby Jones: "It's a business, man. Those things are going to happen. I wish Q the best. He's always a Raven with me, and we got something they can't take from us."
Wide receiver Torrey Smith: "Definitely shocked. You lose a great guy, a great leader. A mentor. All of that. It's not so much about football when you lose someone like that, someone you love like a brother and would do anything for you."
