Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco may well be jumping up and down too, but the words emanating from Flacco's mouth aren't the kind I can print here.
Only a day before this trade went down, Flacco went public in support of Boldin's refusal to take a pay cut according to Robert Klemko of USA Today.
Without him, we don't win the Super Bowl. He's a huge part of this team and someone I want to see back.
Obviously, when you're a player of his caliber, you believe you're worth a number and that's what you should get. He's going to stick to his guns, and that's the way it should be.
Now Boldin's out the door and the Ravens' receiving corps is surrounded by questions.
Baltimore just traded away a player that averaged 95 yards per game in the playoffs and has led the team in receiving yards in each of his three seasons with the Ravens.
Yes, the deal affords the Ravens some salary cap relief, but at least some of that relief will need to be applied towards finding a replacement for Boldin, which may be easier said than done.
Then there's the matter of how the trade will be received by players such as Flacco and fellow wideout Torrey Smith, who tweeted after learning of the trade that "This business is BS at times," according to ESPN.
