Anquan Boldin agreed to a two-year contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers.

The deal is worth $12 million to the 33-year-old wide receiver, with $9 million guaranteed, ESPN reported. Financial terms weren’t disclosed in an e-mailed release from the National Football League team yesterday.

“Anquan has been a very productive player throughout his career and we look forward to his future contributions,” 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke said in the release.

Boldin had a team-high 85 receptions and 1,179 yards last season in San Francisco, his first with the 49ers. His seven touchdown receptions were second to tight end Vernon Davis.

Boldin was picked in the second round of the 2003 draft by the Arizona Cardinals. A three-time Pro Bowl selection, he was the fastest player in NFL history to reach 400 career receptions (67 games), 500 career receptions (80 games) and 600 career receptions (98 games).

Boldin, who spent seven seasons with the Cardinals and three with the Baltimore Ravens before joining the 49ers in 2013, now has 857 career receptions in 156 games.
