NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Anquan Boldin wants to be known as more than simply a tough receiver.
Boldin, a key player in Baltimore's charge to the Super Bowl, isn't afraid to cut across the field. He can shrug off a hard hit, and also is an aggressive downfield blocker.
Asked Tuesday if he appreciates his reputation as one of the toughest receivers in the league, Boldin replied, ``I look it as, I'm a football player. Not so much a receiver.''
Oh, but the man can catch the ball. He's scored three touchdowns in three playoff games, and now he's hoping for a Super Bowl ring after coming up short in 2008 with Arizona.
The Ravens face San Francisco on Sunday.
