Anquan Boldin: The Answer for Minnesota

GLENDALE, AZ - DECEMBER 23: Anquan Boldin #81 of the Arizona Cardinals scores his second touchdown of the game for a 14-7 lead against the Atlanta Falcons during the second quarter at University of Phoenix Stadium on December 23, 2007 in Glendale, Arizona. (Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)

Rumors are that the Cardinals want a first and third for Boldin. They also need a starting RB.

If I'm the Vikings, I call them up and offer two second round picks—one in 2009 and one in 2010, Chester Taylor, and Sidney Rice.

In return the Vikings get Anquan Boldin and Edge.
They get a starting RB that they desperately need, a WR to help replace Boldin, and two second round picks to balance out the deal.

We get the all-pro WR we're lacking on offense and a solid back-up RB to replace Chester (who's probably leaving after this season anyway). Edge is already asking for his release from the Cardinals too.

As a result the Vikings have WR and RB addressed so they can focus on other needs like OT, C, and CB. Makes it easier to take the BPA.
