    SportsGather: The Cards will take a 3rd for Boldin.....

    http://sports.gather.com/viewArticle...81474978082796

    According to reports most recently surfacing on profootballtalk.com, the Arizona Cardinals appear to have set a price for star wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The reports indicate the team would entertain a trade for a third round pick in April's draft.

    Boldin, vocal over the past two years about wanting out of Arizona, posted 84 catches for 1,024 yards and four touchdowns in 2009. It's been difficult to tell if Boldin really wants out of Arizona, a team that made the Super Bowl in 2008 and the playoffs again in 2009, or just wants to be paid what he believes he's worth.

    Therein lies the rub.

    Getting Boldin may not be the issue. Keeping him for an extended period of time might be a different story. Boldin turns 30 in October, the age that is considered to be the beginning of the end for NFL receivers. He'll expect first receiver pay for an extended number of years. Such a contract may be prohibitive to most franchises, especially given the uncertainty of a future collective bargaining agreement.

    Boldin also carries the 'diva' tag for his past antics. He has publicly criticised his team for not appreciating him enough, which is generally considered the first great player sin among any well-run organization.

    The question remains, who will be among his potential suitors?
    Here's a to our starting SG. Way to go Thibs, what a great decision to go with him over TMac.... By the way, how much you want to bet he missed this shot?

    Sounds good to me. You get a top notch wr who has atleast 2 more good years in him... Starters would be Boldin, Aromashadu, Knox. The best 3 wr's i think ive ever seen the bears have.

    Normally I would say yes in a heartbeat, but this team has several holes to fill and no 1st or 2nd round pick. That 3rd round pick is pretty important.

    We need defense with that pick, basically a safety if available. With Martz's playbook, who is to say that he would even flourish with it?

    So we draft an already great WR that is likely a future hall of famer. Great pick.

    Why would you offer more when the tender is only a 3rd?

    All we'd have to do is sign him to an offer sheet and if he agrees then we surrender our 3rd to the Cards. We're no obligated to give up anything more.

    As good as Boldin is, I think I'd pass since we have more pressing needs than WR right now.

    If we were to do something like this, than we gotta get some picks in return for someone like Hester/Olsen/Bennett. Keep our WR's as Boldin/Aroma/Knox/Iglesias/Late round pick.

    I actually would prefer a rotation with Bennett.
