"Baltimore is the only place I want to play," Boldin said in an interview set to air at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network. "It's the last place that I will play.

"The money doesn't mean that much. Winning the Super Bowl, this is why I play. This is why I play through injuries. This is what I get up early in the morning to work out. All for this moment right here."
So, will Boldin return?
"You never know because it always changes," Hostler said of the receiving corps. "We'll see what happens. We love these guys right now. They're warriors. I wouldn't want to be with anybody else right now."
