Kurt Warner might get to keep his $2 million, after all.
A league source tells us that the Arizona Cardinals are shopping receiver Anquan Boldin to potential trade partners.
Warner recently has suggested that he’d devote a portion of his salary to signing Boldin to a new contract. (We don’t think Warner really means it.)
Boldin, a six-year veteran, is signed through 2010. He has wanted for roughly a year a significant increase from his current range of $2.5 million to $3 million.
With teammate Larry Fitzgerald at $10 million per year, Boldin is believed to want at least $9 million annually.
Boldin previously has requested a trade. At one point after the Super Bowl, Boldin said that he would not sign a new deal with the Cardinals, and that he wanted to be dealt to a new team. More recently, he had softened in his position, expressing a willingness to consider a new long-term contract to stay with the team.
