Anquan Boldin may want a trade?

Next stop on the Eagles rumor wheel? Anquan Boldin. Now that Larry Fitzgerald has re-signed with Arizona, it appears fellow Cardinals' receiver Boldin may want out if he doesn't get his own big contract. This speculation comes from Adam Schefter of NFL Network, who says that although the Cardinals consider Boldin the better receiver, he is scheduled to make under 3 million dollars for the next two seasons. Contrast that with Fitzgerald who will be getting 10 million a year for four years, and you could see why an issue could arise. The Cardinals would not be able to pay another receiver upwards of 10 million dollars a season, so they may look to trade him. Schefter mentions that the Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins, the three teams that have been rumored for every top receiver, are possible destinations for Boldin.

Obviously Boldin would be an excellent addition to the Eagles. Just like Randy Moss and Larry Fitzgerald would have been. This time, however, I am not going to get my hopes up. The Eagles have to look into getting Boldin if he becomes available, but I would not count on it happening. Eagles fans have learned far too well how hard it is to acquire a top receiver, so don't start buying your Anquan Boldin #81 Eagles jerseys just yet.
