Loyalty to the fullest.
Anquan Boldin is not visiting the White House this week with his former club, the Baltimore Ravens. Instead, the new 49ers wide receiver is sticking around in the Bay Area to finish out the final three sessions of OTAs.
Boldin explained through his verified Twitter account.
Unfortunately I'm going to miss a great opportunity to be with my Super Bowl team at the White House.—

Young receivers on the roster like fourth-round pick Quinton Patton (pictured right) have learned a great deal from the 11-year veteran receiver already this offseason.
“Since Anquan Boldin’s been out here,” Patton told 49ers.com, “he’s been helping me with my releases.”
The 49ers wideouts will continue to soak up knowledge with Boldin being a solid teammates and bypassing a trip to Washington D.C.

Adam Snyder has made 83 starts during his eight-year NFL career and he’s played at every position on the offensive line during his seven seasons with the 49ers and one-year stint with the Arizona Cardinals.
Snyder, the 6-foot-6, 325-pound guard, re-joined the 49ers on Monday to bring veteran depth on the offensive line. San Francisco’s former third-round pick in 2005 will join his teammates at 49ers Football School on Tuesday and get right back to work with his new, old team.
Snyder, 31, will get an opportunity to compete for a backup role this upcoming season, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.
If that’s the case, it shouldn’t be a concern to Snyder, a respected teammate who has been known to put the team-first in everything he does.

It might be the last week of the season, but the 49ers will have plenty to play for when the Arizona Cardinals come to Candlestick Park on Sunday.
San Francisco is part of a muddled NFC playoff picture that has plenty of moving parts. The 49ers (10-4-1) currently hold the No. 3 seed in the NFC, but can finish anywhere from the No. 2 to No. 5 slot when all the dust settles after Week 17.
The Cardinals, meanwhile, won’t be playing past Sunday after losing 10 of their past 11 games following a 4-0 start to the year.
“It’s been tough,” Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said on Wednesday’s conference call. “This business is about winning games. When you don’t do that it makes everything more difficult.”
