San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said Thursday that the team's main priority is to re-sign wide receiver Anquan Boldin this offseason and that contract negotiations are moving "in a positive direction."

Boldin came to the 49ers last season after a trade with the Baltimore Ravens and led the team with 85 receptions and 1,179 receiving yards in 2013.

"There's angst, and there's work to be done," Harbaugh said, via the Sacramento Bee. "... The direction it's going is very positive because we're unanimous. It's not just me who wants Anquan Boldin back. We feel there's a process. It could be days, weeks, but there's a process, and it's going in a positive direction from the standpoint of the San Francisco 49ers. ... We're all in lockstep with how we feel about him."

In 12 NFL seasons, Boldin has caught 857 passes for 11,344 yards and 65 touchdowns.
