Boldin to Be Traded Rumor Still Floating Around


ESPN’s John Clayton reports that he believes Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin is still likely to be traded, despite Kurt Warner re-signing with the Cards.

Clayton thinks that the Eagles and Giants are the most likely trading partners. The Eagles have $40.5 million of cap room and twelve draft choices, including two first-round picks. The Giants, on the other hand, have four defensive linemen making over $4 million a year. Clayton suspects that Giants DL Osi Umenyiora could be used as trade bait to entice the Cardinals into trading Boldin.

The Cardinals also have some incentive to part with Boldin as the Cards are very deep at WR. They have Fitzgerald, of course, but Steve Breaston (77 receptions, 1,003 yards, and three touchdowns in 2008) has shown that he can step in as a very productive number two receiver. Early Doucet and Jerheme Ubran are also very capable third and fourth receivers.

    I agree, and I was looking at the large amount of Salary the Giants have locked up on the D-line and I agree it seems un-reasonable to keep all those DL. But hey you never know, right. I would not be surprised to see the GMen use that depth on their roster to trade up in draft or sign Boldin in a 3 way deal.

    once again boldin has given all and once again classes cardinals using him as trade bait.why would anybody want to come to a team that shows their players like boldin give your all only to be disrespected and you wonder why the cardinals up until last year were treated like a minor league team is because of their minor league managment that seems to be the only ones staying
