The Detroit Lions are reportedly close to signing veteran Wide Receiver Anquan Boldin to a one year contract.
That news is according to ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter , who first broke the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

The 35-year-old has played for Arizona, Baltimore, and San Francisco over the span of his 13-year career, and has amassed more than 1,000 receptions and 70 touchdowns in the process.
Boldin will join newly-signed Wide Receivers Marvin Jones, Andre Caldwell, and Andre Roberts in the Honolulu Blue & Silver this season, and will likely compete for a #3 or #4 spot on the roster.
The deal is still being finalized, so there's no details just yet on how much money the veteran will receive from the Lions.
