Anquan Boldin to the Giants? Bad News for Me, Great News for NY

First he states that he wants to get traded off of the Cardinals because he felt that the club didn't care about him as a player (something Cardinals GM Rod Graves has denied).

Then he fires agent Drew Rosenhaus.

Now, according to the New York Post, Anquan Boldin might be pushed to the New York Giants, who are in the midst of finding a veteran wide receiver to fill the very literal hole Plaxico Burress created, by new agent Tom Condon.

I think I speak for other 'Cards fans out there when I scream profanities at the top of my lungs.

While Boldin still has a two year contract with Arizona, with $5.75 million still in his deal with the club, a deal somewhere in the $9 to $10 million range could bring the former Offensive Rookie of the Year out of the desert heat and into the Big Apple.

While no word has come out of the NY Giants camp about this breaking news story by the Post, Boldin has expressed interest of being traded in the off season already, teams including but not limited to the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens have wished to speak with the young wide receiver on his five-year plan.

While we still have Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Breaston, and newcomers like Shane Morales to hold down the line as wide receivers, the loss of Boldin would damage the offense of the Cardinals as the preseason begins.

As a fan I think I speak for everyone when I say I hope the Cardinals club knows what they might be losing if Boldin signs with another team—nay—another powerhouse like New York or Philly. Strike a deal with the man and keep him in the desert! He thinks he deserves the pay—GIVE IT TO HIM.

I'm not saying he was the only reason we went so far last year, including the team's first ever Superbowl appearance, but he definitely helped a bit don't you think? Get him to stay in Arizona and the guy might help the club get just as far this year.

Or, you know, you could let him listen to his new agent who, by the way, also manages Eli Manning. Man, I'm sure he'd like to have a new reciever to throw to.
