The Arizona Cardinals have announced today that they have lowered their trade demands for wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a second round pick.

This excellent news should be ringing throughout the Giants offices, and they should react quickly before it's too late.

Earlier in the offseason, Giants general manager Jerry Reese declined the Cardinals trade offers for Boldin because Arizona wanted a first round pick. As we all know, Reese is a pure genius when it comes to the NFL Draft and would not want to give up a valuable first round pick.

Now with Arizona lowering to a second round pick, Reese should jump all over this offer.

Boldin is a dynamic wide receiver and could be that number one receiver the Giants have been looking for since the departure of Plaxico Burress. Boldin would make quarterback Eli Manning a much better player because of his versatility and his ability to stretch the field.

The best part about this offer is that if the Giants do accept this deal and only trade away a second round pick, they still get to keep their first round pick, which would be huge.

New York would now be very open into considering drafting other positions instead of just concentrating on wide receivers such as Hakeem Nicks from North Carolina and Kenny Britt out of Rutgers.

With the Giants already having great weapons at other positions, adding Anquan Boldin would turn them into a great team rather then just a good team.
