Since signing with the Ravens four weeks ago, receiver Anquan Boldin has been working on moving his family from Arizona to Baltimore, find a school for his son and doctors for his pregnant wife.

Now, he is ready to work on his new football family.

Boldin was at Ravens headquarters on Monday to begin participation in the voluntary offseason conditioning program, and he is chomping at the bit to get on the field with quarterback Joe Flacco.

“I’ve had the opportunity to play with a guy like Kurt Warner, and the chemistry we had between each other was unbelievable,” Boldin said, referring to his former signal-caller with the Arizona Cardinals. “We could not say a word to each other and still be on the same page. That’s what I want with Joe.  The more time we spend together, the better that will get.”

Boldin has no worries that he can pick up coordinator Cam Cameron’s offense, considering he’s run a similar version in the past.

At this point, however, Boldin simply wants to get back to the basics.

“It’s about laying groundwork. I need to get familiar with Joe and the language of the offense,” Boldin explained.   “I’ve played in this system before, but the terminology is a little different. It’s familiar, and that helps.”

The five-time 1,000-yard wideout said he is looking forward to catching passes from Flacco, which is expected to happen during Tuesday’s football school session.

“Just watching the guy, he can make every throw on the football field,” said Boldin. “I’m just coming in to help him mature as a quarterback, and hopefully we can take it to the next level.”
