San Francisco 49ers and wide receiver, Anquan Boldin have agreed to a $12 million two-year contract extension according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Werder tweeted earlier today: "Anquan Boldin agreed to 2 year deal worth $12 million with $9 million guaranteed, according to sources"

Boldin joined the 49ers in free agency last season after the Baltimore Ravens did not re-sign the receiver in the aftermath of their Super Bowl win.

The former Arizona Cardinal had an immediate impact in Jim Harbaugh's team, recording over 1,000 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

 Boldin, who is now 33, will likely finish his career with the 49ers but his new contract will make him among the best paid players at his position.

The San Francisco 49ers reached the NFC Championship game for the third time in three years but ultimately were defeated by the eventual Super Bowl winners, Seattle Seahawks.

Boldin was originally drafted 54th overall in 2003 by the Arizona Cardinals. He has over 11,000 career receiving yards and 65 touchdowns.
