Fox Sports is reporting that the Ravens have told wide receiver Anquan Boldin that he has to take a pay cut to remain with the Super Bowl champions. Assuming the report is accurate, the Ravens are wrong to ask Boldin to reduce his $6 million salary this year after a remarkable playoff run by him just two months ago. And Baltimore would make a big mistake to cut Boldin because there is no one on the team who can replace him in the starting lineup or make the same tough, clutch catches. The deadline for Boldin's decision is Tuesday.
