49ers' Anquan Boldin to face former team

SANTA CLARA — His black hooded sweatshirt pulled over his head and covering most of his face, Anquan Boldin stood at his locker Thursday staring back at a dozen or so reporters with a serious expression.

No reason to dress up or soak in the spotlight. Boldin said it's "just another week."

Sure it is.

The wide receiver will be facing his former Arizona team for the second time Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers (3-2) host the Cardinals (3-2) in an NFC West showdown. Boldin spent his first seven seasons with Arizona before being traded to Baltimore for two draft picks following the 2009 season.

Boldin also downplayed the reunion leading up to his first meeting against the Cardinals in 2011 in Baltimore. He took out any lingering feelings on the field, catching seven passes for 145 yards to rally the Ravens past Arizona 30-27.
