So are you saying that it's "wrong" for anyone to want to be traded out from a team?

Take TO as an example, he blamed McNabb and complained to media.. Randy Moss, he plays when he feels like it and he does not watch what he says to the media.. Well at least until he became a Patriots..
As Daseal said, CJ didn't go running to the media first.

And no I'm not saying it's wrong for anyone to want to be traded. I have no problem with what either Boldin or Johnson have done. The NFL is a cut throat business. Either of those guys could be cut today by their teams, so why not look out for themselves.

Whether or not "complain" is the right word, they are both demanding a trade. Just because CJ is "louder" about it doesn't mean it's worse, in my opinion.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I find it very interesting how if a player asks to be cut or traded people get up in arms about how they signed a contract. Didn't the team sign the same contract when they're cutting players because they're due to make too much money? No one complains about that or talks about how the team is whining. Both sides break contracts, the difference is players cant do it on a whim so they have to exercise all their options in order to get out.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

boldin is a good #1, but with injury issues.

a #1 would be alright, but no conditional like with CJ (who's a bit better and injured a lot less).

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I question any player that demands a trade unless the player truly feels that his team has screwed him over with false promises, like Pete Kendall. I'm really not sure about Boldin. I think he plays very well with a chip on his shoulder but I wonder if he'll continue to play with such a high motor after he receives his recognition...$$$.

I say let Mix have a chance to be our Boldin/Colston.

that's bull though, cause he was the #1 his rookie year and almost hit 1400 yards.

he's not only a #1, but he's a very good #1. He's much better than roy williams when he's not injured.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I was watching Sportscenter before, and Mortensen said that we offered a trade for Boldin (they didn't have any details on what we offered) and the Cardinals rejected that too.

Don't know cause I'm not at work but I think it may have been the exact same deal.

Thumbs up Re: Trade for Boldin?

Bolden is the only one that I think is worth that 1st/3rd plus fat contract deal. His size, hands, and age make him worth it. West coast offense...I'm not thrilled about it, but might as well make the best of it.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

Hasn't Boldin had some pretty bad knee injuries? That's not a concern?

I remember that he sat out some of last season. I didn't realize he had bad knee injuries. If that's the case, that would certainly affect my view of any trade proposal.
