Will the Washington Redskins Come Calling for Anquan Boldin?

After the Washington Redskins failed to land Anquan Boldin in a trade before last years draft, will they come calling again now that Arizona is officially taking trade offers.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder is known for getting involved in big acquisitions and this year has been no exception.  The Redskins were heavily involved in the Jay Cutler sweepstakes, and the Boldin opportunity has the makings of another auction to the highest bidder.

ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio has reported it would take a first and third rounder to land Boldin and a contract extension.  While the Cutler price proved to be too high, the Boldin price tag seems more reasonable for a top five receiver in the prime of his career.

The only remaining question is who do the Redskins covet more, Boldin or Mark Sanchez out of USC?  Because trading for Boldin would certainly make drafting Sanchez impossible.
