(TSX / STATS) -- Wide receiver Anquan Boldin announced his retirement from the NFL on Sunday, less than two weeks after signing with the Buffalo Bills.

Boldin was expected to bring a veteran presence to the offense after signing a one-year contract with the Bills on Aug. 7. The 36-year-old made one catch for 5 yards Thursday in a preseason game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
