You've wanted it for over a year, and now it's done: Anquan Boldin is a Raven.
The Ravens announced that they have acquired Boldin and a 2010 fifth-round pick from the Cardinals in return for third and fourth-round picks.
And that's not all. The Ravens also have signed the three-time Pro Bowler to a three-year extension, essentially making his contract a four-year, $28 million deal, according to multiple reports.
"Anquan is a player who makes the tough catches, and he is outstanding getting yards after catches," GM Ozzie Newsome said in a statement released by the team. "He will also help the running game with his blocking skills. He's a very tough competitor, and with the way he plays with passion, he'll fit right in with the foundation we have for our team."
Boldin gives the Ravens a true top-tier wide receiver and at 6-foot-1, 217 pounds, he also provides a physical presence that they have been lacking at the receiver spot.
He's known around the league as a guy who isn't afraid to work over the middle and can pick up tough yards after the catch.
"The Ravens just got better," head coach John Harbaugh said. "Anquan is a significant addition for us. He fits the personality of our team with the hardnosed, physical way he plays. We love the way he competes. Our fans will enjoy watching him compete, and his teammates will be excited to have him with us."
Boldin joins a receiving corps that currently includes Donte' Stallworth and Mark Clayton.
Derrick Mason is still a possibility to return as well, and if he does, the Ravens will have a legitimate top-four at the receiver spot.
Rejoice, Charm City. You got your man.
