Bills sign free agent WR Anquan Boldin

Bills GM Brandon Beane said a couple of weeks ago that Anquan Boldin needed time to assess his family situation before deciding whether to play NFL football in 2017. Buffalo’s patience with Boldin was rewarded Monday as Boldin signed with the Bills.

Buffalo welcomed the veteran wideout to One Bills Drive on a free agent visit last month, and he met with members of the coaching staff, but it took him a couple of weeks to determine he would play a 15th season.

The addition of Boldin provides a proven scoring weapon in Buffalo’s passing offense. The veteran receiver led the Detroit Lions last year with eight touchdowns and was second on the team with 67 receptions.
