Re: How Will Cardinals Handle Boldin Following Fitzerald Restructuring?

They will hold Boldin hostage at least one more year and then entertain trade offers at that point. He has a pretty low cap number now...so what if he wants a new deal. His time for a new deal will come. I would love for the Redskins to have him but unless you think Boldin is going to hold out and refuse to play next year there is absolutely no motivation for Arizona to trade him right now.

Schefter says NOTHING about the Cardinals' interest in trading Anquan Boldin. He's simply speculating that because Fitzgerald just got paid, Boldin will immediately demand a new contract (maybe, maybe not) and if he demands a new contract, the Cards will not be willing to pay him AND Fitzgerald (maybe, maybe not).

There's absolutely no substance to this whatsoever. This is an unfounded rumor with no insider knowledge. Not worthy of discussion.
Ok, I have seen more pointless threads in here and never seen such a passionate reaction. You mean to tell me that this thread is worst than the million posts about trading for Chad Johnson, the threads to get washed up players such as Jerry Porter or David Givens, and the wonderful "Jay Glazer says there is a HUGEEE trade in the works"? (which was laughable in my opinion) Give me a break. When did you become the post police, if so then go rant into those others threads. Besides, most of the "ideal offseason" acquisitions have not happened, so I'm not saying that this will happen and it is set in stone. Sheesh.

Boldin is signed through 2010 at an affordable rate. Salaries of $2.5 million, $2.75 million and $3 million due the next three years.
With that in mind, one has to wonder what it would cost the Cardinals to trade him.

He received a $5 million signing bonus in 2005 and a $5 million roster bonus in 2006, so trading Boldin NOW would accelerate a $5 million hit in dead money.

But on the other hand, the Cardinals would be looking at a $4.5 million cap hit in 2008 for keeping him.

So it is actually cheaper for the Cardinals to KEEP Boldin.
I'll bet that thought process on the part of the GM took all of 5 seconds

"Hmm get rid of him = $5,000,000
Keep him = 4,500,000"

Unless you enjoy talking about trades that would be cool in Madden land.
The speculation is b/c Boldin is a Drew Rosenhaus guy, and Fitzgerald just got a new contract. It's baseless though, because Boldin is a high production, star caliber player just like Fitzgerald, yet Fitzgerald has been due this money since the day he signed his rookie contract. And boldin hasn't complained before and still isn't whining. Talking heads just assume he'll start to make noise b/c of his representation.

fixed it for you.

I agree with you. Im not to hyped on DJ Hackett, but Bolden on the other hand i can see really giving problems to opposing DB's and freeing up our other Wide outs and vice versa

Re: How Will Cardinals Handle Boldin Following Fitzerald Restructuring?

Look all Snyder has to do is convince Bidwell that if he takes this deal he'll save money. Hell the only reason Arizona has been trying to compete is because someone probably told Bidwell that if they win they'll make more money.
