Re: Trade for Boldin?

boldin for a 1st NOT 1st + something. he's not cj and he's had 2 seasons with injury issues.

when healthy he's good for 1400 though.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

So I do not have to post my opinion on 3 differnt threads. I will take Boldin, Williams, or CJ in a New York minuite. Yes, I would give up a 1st rounder for any of them. That alleviates the need for a WR and we still have a draft to work with. Great WR's are hard to find. IMO all 3 are great and provide what we need on the opposite end of Santanna (about 16 inches).

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I second 724Skinsfan's opinion that people who demand trades need to be viewed differently. We should also caution against the feeling that a player is "reasonable" because his antics and noise level don't rise to the level of Chad Johnson - he's so far over the line that he can't see it in his rear view mirror.

That being said, Boldin has a case for wanting to move on.
  • 2003: Recorded 101 catches for 1,377 yards ... In his first professional season, caught at least three passes in all 16 games and his five 100-yard receiving games were the most by a Cardinal since 1998 (Frank Sanders, 5) … authored the Cards’ three longest plays from scrimmage, all touchdowns (71, 60, and 54 yards), and eight of the top 10 … led the NFL with 40 third-down receptions and registered 64 first downs to lead all rookies … held the third down receiving leader spot for 15 of 17 weeks
  • 2004: Recorded 56 catches for 623 yards ... Underwent surgery to repair a slightly torn meniscus in his right knee on 8/11 after suffering the injury in a training camp practice on 8/10 … subsequently deactivated due to the knee injury for the first six games of 2004 … returned to action @ Buf (10/31) as a third receiver and recorded a game-high four receptions for 50 yards … in his first start of the season tied Larry Fitzgerald for a team-high five receptions in his homecoming game @ Mia (11/7) for 37 yards in his second game back from a knee injury.
  • 2005: 102 catches for 1,402 yards ... Opened the season by continuing his streak of catching at least three passes in every game he has played, catching four passes for 62 yards @ NYG (9/11) … recorded his eighth career 100-yard receiving game vs. StL (9/18) with 119 yards on eight receptions … became the fastest NFL receiver to reach 200 receptions after making eight grabs for 105 yards and a touchdown @ StL (11/20)
  • 2006: For the third time in four years went over 1,000 yards receiving and was also selected to the Pro Bowl for the second time in his career ... 83 catches for 1,203 yards

All this while working under a contract that will pay him (only?) $2.5 million next year while his teammate (who averages fewer catches and yards) will average around $14 million a year through the next three. I don't think that's a good atmosphere for him at all, and frankly he has handled himself fairly professionally.

Of course the Cards are saying no deal, but would they jump at the same deal we offered for CJ?

azcentral.com | Phoenix Arizona News - Arizona Local News
I'd prefer him over CJ because of the age factor. But it's just going to cost too much and he's going to want a deal near what Fitzgerald got. Plus he's injury prone.

I hate to keep repeating myself but why can't we draft a guy like Boldin in the 3rd or 4th round?

Boldin had knee surgery in pre-season 2004, missing six games. I haven't seen anything on the knee being an ongoing issue. Last year he missed 4 games with hip/toe issues. He is expected healthy for 2008.

The knee doesn't appear to be a problem, but I'd investigate the hip issue.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

ESPN is reporting that the Redskins made an offer to the Cardinals to acquire Boldin in a trade but the Cardinals declined the offer.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

link on the boldin ESPN article?

I think you have to take the whole Boldin thing in with a grain of salt:
1) He is not much younger than Chad at 27 (2 years and change) so the complaint about Chad's year count is either totally overblown or should be applied partially towards boldin too. And I'll take Chad's consistency and durability over that 2 yr difference with boldin

2) Boldin has had some injury concerns and the last thing we need is an injury prone player on our roster. Just another chance at an offseason hypothetical, leaving us scratching our heads, asking what if so-and-so was healthy.

3) Boldin's numbers are padded by the fact that he played in the pass happy NFC West. When you play in high scoring games against SF, St Louis and Seattle, especially when your team is down by a large margin and has to pass, your WR's are gonna get the stats. Also, the DB's probably aren't as good as in Chad's AFC North (with Pittsburgh and Baltimore).

4) Boldin had the benefit of Fitzgerald taking away a lot of the attention and it probably suited for the #2 role on any team. 85 on the other hand was almost always doubled and was always treated as the #1 threat on the field.

5) Boldin has never really played in big (NFL) game situations. He has no playoff experience and typically his teams have finished well under .500. Arizona is a pretty tame NFL state where little pressure is put on that team to perform. Who knows how he will deal with big city pressure and expectations, especially in a media market like DC?

He tore his ACL his junior year of college as well. I think that's why he dropped in the draft, if I recall correctly.

It is in the same article on ESPN.COM that discusses the Bengals declining the offer made on Johnson.

I just saw that on the sportscenter ticker.
What was the offer for Boldin?

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I'd give up this years first for Boldin. Done deal. Maybe even throw in a late rounder...5-7th round pick. Proven talent, young, and what we need. We wouldn't be mortgaging our future either. If you take a WR at #21 it's hit or miss. Almost 50/50 chance he's be productive.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I really dont feel we have the necessary cap space to make a deal like this work. I mean of course we do if we cut a bunch of guys and restructure a bunch of other contracts, but doing both of those things hurts the team in the long run more than getting a standout WR with the amount that they are going for. At this rate of restructuring contracts, Jansen, Thomas, Samuels, Portis, Moss, Randle El, Carter, smoot, washington, and griffin will all still be redskins when they are 90 due to the rediculous bonus money they will have. Not to mention, griffin, washington, springs, wade, and probably more people but I cant think of them all right now are in danger of getting cut due to the cap.

Re: Trade for Boldin?

I like Boldin for us better then CJ...younger and less mouth. Seems like a good fit next to Moss. i would try and get him for less then CJ though...maybe just the #1 with nothing else added on.

They obviously do since they're trying to work out a deal. I'm sure they probably have the space already penciled in for a contract of that magnitude and have running projections of the entire roster for the next 3 years. If there's one thing this front office knows how to do well it's working the cap.
