The San Francisco 49ers have acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Baltimore Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick. Boldin, a star in Baltimore's run to the Super Bowl title last season, must pass a physical to complete the deal. The Ravens announced the trade Monday. Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers. The 32-year-old Boldin had said he'd consider retirement rather than leave Baltimore. But going to the NFC champions might change his mind.

Texas Christian quarterback Casey Pachall was suspended indefinitely Thursday, hours after he was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated - his second brush with trouble this year and one that clouds the 15th-ranked Horned Frogs' push for a Big 12 title. The 21-year-old Pachall was arrested just after midnight when he was pulled over after running a stop sign near TCU's Fort Worth campus, police Sgt. Pedro Criado said. Pachall's blood-alcohol level was above the legal limit of 0.08 percent, Criado said, declining to provide specifics.

Jay Cutler was back home, nursing his concussion and watching as the Chicago Bears got pounded by the San Francisco 49ers, 32-7, on Monday night. Whether he'll play this weekend remains to be seen. He told ESPN Radio he was feeling "as normal as can be" and would play again this season. He said he "can't say that for sure" when asked if he'll be ready to play against Minnesota. Having their starting quarterback certainly would help the Bears, who are suddenly reeling after back-to-back losses to two of the league's top teams in Houston and San Francisco.

Opening weekend is a bit of a mystery to the coaches, players, and fans. And especially to the guy making predictions. Here goes anyway: Friday at 7 Lenape at Cherokee. The Indians have a new coach, Tim McAneney, and seem to have a serious uptick in spirit. They have a solid line led by Bobby Isopi and Doug Gilbert, and a talented quarterback in converted wide receiver Cory Jett. Cherokee is rebuilding a bit after winning back-to-back South Jersey Group 4 titles.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Marvin McNutt stood on a sideline filled with other seemingly anonymous rookies, remaining the biggest wide receiver in the group even with a slight lean. Fans filled the bleachers behind him, calling for McNutt and shouting that he needs a nickname. When a sixth-round pick is in consideration for a nickname, it means there's either a rabid fan base or a player who could become relevant. In McNutt's case, it's both. The attention given to McNutt in training camp was amplified when Riley Cooper fell to the grass in Saturday's practice and broke his left collarbone, an injury that coach Andy Reid said will sideline Cooper for about six weeks.

JOE FLACCO knows his stature as the highest-paid player in NFL history may not last for long, and he's OK with it. What matters most to the Super Bowl MVP is that the Baltimore Ravens were willing to pay him that kind of money in the first place. Flacco signed his new contract Monday worth $120.6 million over 6 years. He will receive a $29 million signing bonus, $52 million in guaranteed money and $51 million over the first 2 years of the deal. The former first-round draft pick out of Delaware threw 11 touchdown passes during the recent postseason and led Baltimore to its Super Bowl win over San Francisco.
