SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Anquan Boldin sprinted off the field for the locker room following a memorable 49ers debut, then insisted afterward that's just how he rolls.
He gets paid to catch footballs, and he approaches each game as a job from the moment he steps onto the field to the way he exits the turf a few hours later - with a little bit of fun mixed in, of course.
Nobody will question anything he says or does after the performance he put on with 13 receptions for 208 yards to lead San Francisco past the Green Bay Packers 34-28 in Sunday's season opener.
Coach Jim Harbaugh saw no need to call big brother, John, and thank him for trading the wideout from Super Bowl champion Baltimore. Harbaugh has done it many times in recent months.
