SAN FRANCISCO >> The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to acquire wide receiver Anquan Boldin from the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens for an undisclosed pick in this April’s draft.

The deal, announced by the team shortly after the start of the free agency period Tuesday, is pending a physical. Boldin was a big key in Baltimore’s 34-31 Super Bowl victory against the 49ers. He made six catches for 104 yards and a touchdown and also had five receptions for 60 yards and two TDs in a victory over New England in the AFC title game.

Also Tuesday, the 49ers sent backup quarterback Alex Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs in a swap that gives San Francisco a conditional pick in the 2014 draft. Smith still must pass a physical in Kansas City.
