The Buffalo Bills won the Anquan Boldin sweepstakes Monday signing the veteran to a one year deal.

Boldin is scheduled to begin practicing Tuesday with the team after posting 67 catches for 584 yards and eight touchdowns in 16 games last season for Detroit.

Boldin’s 1,076 catches for 13,779 yards rank third among players since breaking into the NFL in 2003, when he was drafted in the second round by Arizona. He played seven seasons with the Cardinals and also had two three-year stints in Baltimore and San Francisco.

Overall, he ranks ninth on the NFL career list in catches, 14th in yards receiving and is tied for 23rd with 82 touchdowns receiving.


The Bills selected East Carolina product Zay Jones in the second round and also signed a number of free agents, including Andre Holmes, Philly Brown and Rod Streater.

To make room for Boldin on the roster, Buffalo designated tight end Keith Towbridge as waived/injured after he injured his right foot in practice on Friday.
