There is light at the end of tunnel. On Tuesday, media reports surfaced that Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin informed the NFL Players Association, in a letter, that he intended to replace Drew Rosenhaus as his agent. The letter was sent on Friday the 22nd, and after the mandatory five-day waiting period, Boldin will be able to hire a new agent on Thursday.

Tuesday was latest twist in the ongoing Boldin contract drama that has hovered over the organization since last offseason. Boldin had been represented by Rosenhaus since 2003 when he was drafted by Arizona in the second round following a successful career at Florida State.

Now with a fresh voice at the bargaining table, perhaps Boldin and the Cardinals are one step closer to coming towards an agreement. Throughout this whole process, Rosenhaus has been the mouth piece voicing his displeasure about Boldin’s contract.

Q has remained relatively quiet and from a PR perspective he may need to come out and tell his side of the story. For his first interview since the firing of long time agent Drew Rosenhaus a few key issues would need to be addressed.

How is the hamstring feeling?

Has it been hard sitting out OTA’s while your teammates are on the field?

When did you decide it was in your best interest to part ways with Drew Rosenhaus?

What was Drew’s initial reaction when you told him you wanted to part ways?

Your brother D.J plays for the Detroit Lions and is still signed with Drew Rosenhaus, what advice would give him on working with an agent

When do you expect to be signed with a new agent?

Would you still welcome a trade to a new team or are you now more open to sitting down with the Cardinals to discuss a new deal?

Are you still planning on reporting to training camp in July?

If, a deal or a trade is not reached would you be willing to sit out any regular season games?

Is there a message you would like to give to fans of the Arizona Cardinals?
