If there’s discord between 49ers players and coach Jim Harbaugh in the locker room -- as the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing a source with “inside knowledge of the team” -- that’s news to one of the winner of the Bill Walsh Award as the 49ers MVP and one of the most respected veteran players on the team.

“I don’t think anybody in the locker room has an issue with Coach Harbaugh,” Anquan Boldin said. “The way our locker room is built, we have an open-door policy. If anybody has a concern or wants to voice their opinion, they’re more than welcome to.

“There have been times we have voiced our concerns as players, and Coach Harbaugh has listened to us and taken into consideration how we felt as players.”

Boldin added, “I don’t think there’s any rift between players and coaches, particularly Coach Harbaugh. Like I said, he has a great rapport with all of the guys that I know of. I heard of no griping in the locker room when it comes to Coach Harbaugh.”
