San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who’s about to make his 1,000th catch Sunday against the Lions, said quadruple-digit catches never was a goal of his, that he barely has paid attention to the mark this week and that he's decidedly unconcerned about statistics. In this photo, Boldin (81) beats Cincinnati Bengals strong safety Leon Hall (29) for a touchdown catch in the fourth quarter during a game at Levi's Stadium on Sunday December 20, 2015 in Santa Clara, Calif.
