Call me crazy...but Anquan Boldin, or a different number one wide receiver, will most likely be a New York Giant next year.  

The Giants now know that despite them drafting Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden, the receiving corps is still partially depleted. This is the reason why the Giants will trade for Boldin: The Giants will have the money to spend on him that the Cardinals will not and the trade will work well for both teams.

I think this has a very high chance of happening because Jerry Reese is no idiot and can see just as well as I can that with the current wide receivers, the offense will be horrible. The problem is that opposing teams will still be able to line up man to man with no problems.

The Giants would have to trade their second round pick in the 2010 Draft (as Jerry Reese refuses to trade away his first round pick for anyone), Domenik Hixon, and one or two other random non-essential players from the defense to get a Boldin.

This would give the Giants' offense life again while the Cardinals will not have to deal with a player who will pull a T.O. as he did in his last year in Philly.

They could also make a trade for both Boldin and Edgerrin James, allowing them to have earth, wind, and fire again. For this to happen, they would have to give up a second round pick in the 2010 draft, Bradshaw, Hixon, and Moss. However, I like this trade better.

You would also have the possibility of trading for a player like Chad Ocho Cinco, but it'll be like Manny being Manny unless Chad is happy and thus, feels like playing.The Giants also could trade for Antonio Bryant as he was franchised. Being that they have to pay him $10 million this year, they would probably be willing to listen to offers.

The Giants could attempt to sign a player such as Matt Jones (while jail time is likely, it will only be for a day or two) or Marvin Harrison.
