According to's Mike Sando, disgruntled Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin has reportedly decided to fire his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, after requests for a new contract or a trade to another team have apparently fallen on deaf ears.

"Regarding Anquan Boldin, let me say that I have great respect for him. I'm hopeful we can work this out and he can return to the Rosenhaus Sports family in the near future. We are proud to continue to represent his brother, D.J. Boldin," Rosenhaus said. 

Rosenhaus had previously tried to pressure the Cardinals into trading Boldin earlier in the offseason prior to the NFL Draft.

With two years remaining on a contract signed in 2005, Boldin has been in pursuit of a new deal ever since teammate Larry Fitzgerald received a four-year, $40 million contract extension in 2008. The Cardinals have instead planned on renegotiating deals with safety Adrian Wilson and linebacker Karlos Dansby. 

Boldin has reportedly sought the representation of two of Fitzgerald's agents, Eugene Parker and Paul Lawrence.

Boldin has reportedly wanted $10 million a year in a potential new deal from the Cardinals. Rosenhaus reported on his Twitter account on May 18 that "We recently made a proposal to the Cards for less."
