San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin hit a milestone on Sunday, becoming the 13th NFL player with at least 1,000 career receptions.

Going into the game, the 35-year-old downplayed the accomplishment, but threw his 1,000th catch to the sideline to keep.

The milestone comes in Boldin's 185th career game, with only Marvin Harrison (167), Andre Johnson (168), Jerry Rice (181) and Larry Fitzgerald (182) getting to 1,000 catches faster, according to the Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN).

Boldin is set to become an unrestricted free agent and wants to return to the Niners.
