Disgruntled WR Anquan Boldin wants a trade, and the Ravens are willing to oblige. Why draft an angry wideout over a fresh new head like Darrius Heyward-Bey. The answer is experience.

I'm not trying to take anything away from DHB, he's a great fit for Flacco, but Boldin is better fit. Boldin has the experience Bey doesn't have. He also has toughness. Remember when he got his face turned inside out against the Jets? He came back three weeks later, after a horrible jaw injury.

Who would the Ravens trade? The first choice that comes to mind is the first round draft pick, but I don't think that is the best option.

As hard as it is to say, we should trade Willis McGahee. I love the guy to death, and he is a great person, but it is time to let him go. McClain and Rice are the backs for the team, and the Cardinals will be more than willing to get a good running back to help their ailing running game.
