NFL free agency update: Ed Reed a possibility for 49ers

03.12.13 at 10:58 am ET

Safety Ed Reed might join former Ravens teammate Anquan Boldin with the 49ers, according to (crediting a league source). Reed just hired David Dunn of Athletes First to be his new agent, and Dunn also represents 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and general manager Trent Baalke.

The 49ers could lose safety Dashon Goldson, leaving them a hole that Reed could fill.

Meanwhile, Boldin, speaking from Africa where he’s on a charity mission, told ESPN that he was surprised to be traded to the 49ers, reportedly for a sixth-round draft pick.

“It was an initial shock because I had no clue that I was going to be traded,” Boldin said, adding: “It is also a good thing. … When I look at the organization and what they’re about … and as a football team, the talent that they have … I think it’s good, a good place for me to be.”
