04:21 PM ET 02.09 | Anquan Boldin made a name for himself in Arizona alongside Larry Fitzgerald, but he said on Friday that he's a Raven for life, which means if they cut him he's not going to play football for anyone else ever again. Boldin spoke with NBCSports Radio on Friday and said he's going to hang up the cleats and retire if the Ravens release him and/or don't restructure his contract. Boldin was traded to the Ravens in 2010 and has spent that last three seasons with them, but even in that short amount of time, Boldin says that the Ravens organization has made a big impact on him. Boldin is entering the final year of his four-year, $25-million contract with Baltimore but the feeling is that he has one of the most dangerous contracts on the books in Baltimore.

Call his bluff.

A bold move, but I'm sure the Ravens will find a way to sign him.

Local radio stations have been BEGGING the Pats to make a push for him if the Welker thing doesn't work.

He should just keep quiet until a deal is done....if they want him, they'll keep him. end of story.

Jacoby also said he wants to stay in BMore. That says a lot about the Ravens organization.
