Boldin expressed his regret, via Twitter, on Monday.
Unfortunately I'm going to miss a great opportunity to be with my Super Bowl team at the White House.— Anquan Boldin (@AnquanBoldin) June 3, 2013
I know those guys will proudly share our Super Bowl memories and unforgettable moments on my behalf.— Anquan Boldin (@AnquanBoldin) June 3, 2013
Despite leading Ravens receivers in 2012 with 65 receptions and 921 yards, Boldin was traded to the team the Ravens defeated in the Super Bowl in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round draft pick. Boldin especially was effective in the playoffs, grabbing 22 passes for 380 yards and four touchdowns in four games. He posted six catches for 104 yards and one touchdown in Super Bowl XLVII.
