Anquan Boldin and a Seahawks comparison

We'll be sizing up NFC West receiving corps all season after Percy Harvin and Anquan Boldin joined the division this week.

2012 Receiving Totals

In the video above, AFC North blogger Jamison Hensley and I took an initial look at the Boldin trade's impact on the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

I've separately put together a chart comparing 2012 receiving totals for Boldin and new teammate Michael Crabtree against those for incumbent Seattle Seahawks receivers Sidney Rice and Golden Tate. Harvin's addition to that group has the potential to free Rice and/or Tate for expanded production. Harvin had that effect for Rice when the two were together with Minnesota in 2009.

We'll touch on that angle more as time permits.
