BALTIMORE -- Here's a Super Bowl twist: A guy who helped Baltimore beat San Francisco for the NFL title now is a 49er.

San Francisco acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Ravens for a sixth-round draft pick Monday. 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, prompting a disappointed response from quarterback Joe Flacco, the Super Bowl MVP.

"Anquan was a great receiver for myself and for our football team," said Flacco, who signed a six-year, $120.6-million deal with the Ravens last week. "It's sad to see a guy like that go, but at the same time you want what's best for him and you just wish him the best of luck.

Boldin had six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 34-31 Super Bowl victory over the 49ers.
