There seems to be some pretty good back and forth between the Eagles and the agent for Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin, who was possibly rumored to be heading to the city of Brotherly Love. Seems that Philly coach Andy Reid recently stated that there were two major reasons why Boldin won’t be wearing green in 2009 –
Draft picks, and the amount that he thinks Boldin wanted per year – $10 mil.
Boldin’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, quickly came to his client’s defense, using his always entertaining Twitter account to say the following: “Reports that Anquan Boldin is seeking a contract worth $10 million per [year] are inaccurate,” Rosenhaus said “We recently made a proposal to the Cards for less.”
Of course how much less is a great question. The other rumor is that Boldin was looking for about $8 mil per season, so where Reid came up with $10 mil is anyone’s guess. Boldin has a deal for the next two seasons with the Cardinals.
