Detroit Lions wide receiver Anquan Boldin (80) runs the ball against the defense of Seattle Seahawks middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (54) and strong safety Rafael Bush (31) during the first half in the NFC Wild Card playoff football game at CenturyLink Field.

The Buffalo Bills just added one of the most consistent receivers of the past decade today, signing Anquan Boldin to a one-year contract. The veteran receiver led the Detroit Lions past year with eight touchdowns and was second on the team with 67 receptions.

Boldin has experience with Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, having played for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and 2012, when Taylor was a backup.

Boldin joins a receiving corps featuring Sammy Watkins, rookie Zay Jones and free agent additions Andre Holmes and Rod Streater, who have impressed throughout training camp.

Beane said the addition of Boldin is not a knock against any depth players at the position on the team now. He was a part-time player with the Lions last season, and still was a valuable asset. I've been a big Anquan fan from afar.

One of the reasons it took two weeks to get Boldin signed is that he was weighing heavily the decision on moving his family up from Florida. You're talking about a (Walter Payton) Man of the Year and he's ninth all-time in receptions. The 6-foot-1, 218-pounder played seven years with the Cardinals and played in the Super Bowl following the 2008 season that Arizona lost to the Steelers.
