I always liked Anquan Boldin when he was a 49er (2013-2015). On a team with too many mediocrities, he was a standout who gave his all.
I like him even better for this:
Boldin has been telling his story to anyone in Congress who will listen.
Unlike so many cases of this nature, the shooter will stand trial in October for manslaughter and attempted first degree murder with a firearm.
But Boldin has become an activist. He intends to continue telling anyone who will listen what goes down between Black communities and police departments after he leaves football. That might be tougher than getting hit while catching passes.
