The saga of upset Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin has taken another twist, as now the unhappy pass catcher has asked the club to trade him. It was just on Monday that it came out that Boldin and head coach Ken Whisenhunt are not even on speaking terms at this point, and Boldin has been outspoken that when his deal is up in three years he would not resign with the Cards.
Now just two weeks before the start of the 2008 season, the relationship between he and the club has gone further south, and Boldin wants out. The Cards have come out and said they have no plans whatsoever to move Boldin, and still want to sign him to a contract extension, which is where all the problems between he and the team seem to lie.
Drew Rosenhaus is the agent for Boldin, and reportedly he communicated to the team the request to move his client, which again the Cards denied. Arizona claims they made Boldin a contract offer late in the 2007 season, and Rosenhaus took over a month to get back to them. The reported deal was about half of what wide out Larry Fitzgerald got this offseason when he signed a four-year deal worth $40 mil.
The hot rumor seems to have Boldin landing in Philadelphia if the team does move him, as they have some players that can be moved, as well as reports say they would be willing to deal a number one for Boldin, who would upgrade their passing game a great deal and be a huge threat for QB Donovan McNabb.
