Sal Pal: Eagles, Jets, & Giants in Boldin talks

New, comments


Just think about, we may be mere hours away from not hearing another Boldin story/rumor! Until then, I gotta report what's out there. So here's todays episode of the soap opera.

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio is reporting the Cardinals have lowered their price for Boldin, and that the Eagles, Jets, & Giantshave become interested.

The Arizona Cardinals have reduced their trade demands for disgruntled receiver Anquan Boldin to a second-round pick in Saturday's draft and other considerations and are talking to at least three teams who seem to be newly interested, two sources told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio on Friday.

The New York Jets, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles have expressed interest given the downgraded demands from a first- and third-round pick, the sources said.
Cardinals GM Rod Graves doesn't think a deal will happen and that it's likely the team will give Boldin a new contract.
General manager Rod Graves said Friday given the dearth of trade offers for wide receiver Anquan Boldin, the probability of Boldin remaining with the Cardinals is "pretty high."

"Our priority has always been to extend Anquan at some point and we felt before doing so we had to at least explore opportunities a trade might present," Graves said. "We have done that and the process is still not over, but it looks as if him staying with us and at least the possibility of an extension seems more of a reality that a trade."
Who knows what to to believe? Either way, we should know the final answer sometime tomorrow afternoon.
