SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Once the shock of being traded from the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens wore off, Anquan Boldin called Colin Kaepernick to get a feel for the 49ers' young quarterback.
The two have spoken several times since then, and Kaepernick can probably expect a few more calls between now and offseason workouts.
Boldin doesn't want anything preventing him from settling in quickly to his new surroundings, and getting on the same page with his quarterback was the perfect starting point.
The receiver still doesn't have a contract extension and has yet to meet with 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, the younger brother of Boldin's former coach in Baltimore. But everything else that has happened since the deal was announced tells Boldin this is a good fit.
