Ladies and Gentlemen, the Oakland Raiders are looking at Anquan Boldin! 

Al Davis and the Oakland Raiders are all eyes right now, while Boldin is up for trade and the Raiders are looking to change things up in Oakland. 

Al Davis has plenty of money and nice draft picks to entice the Cardinals to give up the big man. 

Now lets step back for just a minute... What would Boldin bring to Oakland?

1. A Veteran Wide-Out with awesome hands and the ability to make a huge play at any moment.

2. A leader in the offense with a voice that players will listen to.  Boldin has a presence that is UN matched by many.  He has been in the Big Game and understands what it takes to win.

Now it's a prediction but sounds like the Raiders could make this move.  With a battle for QB in the Oakland camp, having Boldin on one side while young talent on the other, will bode well for whoever takes the helm.

Anquan will do what I think Al Davis brought Jevon Walker into town for(that NEVER panned out) which is to become a "go-to" reliable receiver with big play ability.

Now will Boldin fit in Oakland?  I think yes.  There will be some growing pains because the Raiders aren't setting the world on fire (just yet...) and Boldin is a starlight junkie.  This would be the piece to the puzzle that make huge sense, and the Oakland Raiders are on the verge of becoming a very competitive team.

The Oakland Raiders are young right now but very talented, once the QB position becomes secure and confident, this team will shine.

In the Draft we look into strengthening our Trenches, both offense and defense linemen are very important right now.  Add Boldin, keep all key players, Cable is the Coach and the Raiders go above .500 in 2010!


Lets Go Silver and Black!!!
