When it comes to Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin, it seems more than ever all he wants is to cash in on a big season in which he helped the Cards make the Super Bowl. Thursday things seemed to go in a totally different direction, as Boldin’s agent – Drew Rosenhaus, said that his client would be open to a long-term deal with Arizona.
Both Boldin and Rosenhaus has said over and over that he wanted to get out of Arizona, and that he wanted to get a deal done to move Boldin to another team. Now maybe that the dust has settled a bit after the Super Bowl, Boldin realizes that the best thing to do is try and play nice and stick around with a good situation in the desert.
The word that Boldin would be open to staying came on Thursday when Adam Schefter of NFL Network reported that Rosenhaus told Cardinals general manager Rod Graves that, while his client remains receptive to a trade, he is willing to sign a long-term deal with the Cards.
Schefter said that Rosenhaus said that if a long-term deal cannot be worked out, Boldin still would like to be dealt. But for the time being, Boldin wanted to give the Cardinals additional options. Rosenhaus and Graves met Thursday in Indianapolis, and Schefter said that they “covered some ground.”
