It's all about return on investment, and if Boldin isn't playing, AZ has got to be considering their options -- even if they say they aren't. Just because Boldin is under contract doesn't mean AZ won't trade him. If he's not on the field, I guarantee AZ will look at possible trade scenarios (if they haven't already).

P.S.: the vet min thing was a joke (I think)
Okay there is a fine line between "imagine" and "dream" and I think you just crossed it.

Holding out means millions in fines and Boldin does not get paid.

Now I ask you what is the probabilty that Boldin leaves 12 million dollars sitting on the table?

Can't help but think of ALL the players that have said "I'll never play another down for ________ (fill in the team name here).

Last year off-season Lance Briggs said it "I'll never play another down for the Bears". Then. when the holdout starting costing him money in fines and his paycheck, who was the first one in the locker room when camp opened? Briggs, and now he "loves the Bears".

Chad Johnson this past spring. "I'll never play another down for the Bengals" yet when it was HIS paycheck that was going to be affected, he is in camp, on time and LOVES his team.

I could go on and on with lists of players that so-called "hold out" and only 3 come to mind that ACTUALLY did it, or are doing it. One was Emmit Smith who held out through camp and the first 2 weeks of the regular season. When the Cowboys started the season 0-2, they offered Smith his new contract.

And then there is Steven Jackson who has stuck to his guns in St Louis this year and there is still no resolution.

And lastly Jason Peters in Buffalo this year, again sticking to his guns and still no resolution

But with regard to Jackson and Peters, I will bet they have a huge change of stance once week 1 of the regular season starts and they do not get that weekly game check.

Just saying that the probabilty of Boldin holding out for 2 years is extremely LOW. And it borders on the ludicrous.

Re: Boldin

I seem to remember somebody holding out until the 11th week of the season in recent years. I forget the name, but I know it happened.

Anyways, I agree that Boldin is probably bluffing. But, you said, "Cardinals will not trade Boldin, no matter how much Boldin wants to be traded." Well, if his desire to be traded exceeds his desire to get paid, then he holds almost all the cards -- all he has to do is holdout into the regular season and AZ will make a move.

Re: Boldin

NFL radio mentioned they wouldn't be surprised to see the Eagles throw Lito Shepard and a 1st round pick for Boldin. That would be a hard trade for the Cards to turn down. A very good CB and a first round pick for a disgruntled player that even if he played his contract out, chances are you couldn't fit him under the cap.

Re: Boldin

He's not going anywhere.
The headcoach will be fired at the end of the year.
Russ grimm will take over and work things out with bolden.

Re: Boldin

Eagles WR Kevin Curtis is going to be out several weeks now following sports hernia surgery. Plus, Reggie Brown is hurting. Eagles could use another WR

Horn contacted the Eagles yesterday but so far they've gone on record as saying that their not intrested. Apparently they're waiting for the result of Kevin Curtis sports hernia surgery. This is the same Curtis who got 1,100 yards last year which seems to constantly escape the minds of people including the Eagles front office.

Another funny thing concerning Boldin is that Boldins agent is none other then Drew Rosenhaus. And if you guys remember Roshenhaus does not have a very good relationship with Eagles management.

Re: Boldin

don't know if the pokes would put that much $ (or have cap room) into another wr, but the thought of him in dallas is scary. They certainly could package some picks as they have good talent across the board.

I was thinking Dolphins and Bucs as well. Boldin is a south florida native (a rabbit chaser from the Glades, a la edgerrin james, santonio holmes, and many others ) and a Seminole. Both of those teams have money to spend and are weak at WR. It would definitely help Pennington to have a fast, big, physical WR to go after his rag-arm passes. I swear that guy couldn't throw through wet toilet paper.

Tennessee is an interesting prospect as well. Call me crazy but I don't see Justin Gage or Roydell Williams as #1 options. The Vikes spent a lot of loot on Jared Allen and Berrian, plus Sidney Rice started emerging at the end of last season.

I don't know if Philly or Dallas make a move at him, but I sure as shit hope not. I highly doubt Dallas will, and Philly could, but they're damn cheap.
