PRESCOTT, Ariz. (July 31, 2005) -- The Arizona Cardinals agreed to a contract extension with receiver Anquan Boldin July 31 that would keep him with the team through the 2010 season.
Financial terms of the deal were not released.
Boldin missed a minicamp in the spring because he wanted a more favorable deal.
Two seasons ago, Boldin was the NFL's offensive rookie of the year after setting an NFL record for rookies with 101 receptions, tying the team record for any receiver. Only one rookie in league history -- Bill Groman of the 1960 Houston Oilers -- had more yards receiving than Boldin's 1,377.
Last year, Boldin injured his right knee early in training camp, underwent arthroscopic surgery and missed the first six games. He wound up with 56 catches for 623 yards and one touchdown.
No player in NFL history has had more catches in his first 26 games than Boldin's 157.
