    Boldin

    What will it take for the Rams to get Boldin? Boldin and Avery actually sounds like a WR core to fear along with PUNISHING JACKSON.

    The cardinals would probably ask for steven jackson along with a first rounder. and By the way.. no chance of them trading him whithin the division.

    Re: Boldin

    CAN WE PLEASE STOP THE BOLDIN TALKS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    ITZ NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN BECAUSE:

    1) Why would the Cards trade Boldin inside the division?

    2) If we get Boldin we would have to pay him that money.

    3) Cards will want a 2010 1st rounder and we wont give up a top 15 pick for Boldin.

    4) With us focusing on the Run game Boldin will get the ball much and he will probably complain do you actually think he will get the ball 90 times like in Arizona.


    It is more probable that we will win more than 10 games this season then the Cards giving us Boldin.

    Re: Boldin

    It would take Arizona suddenly forgetting that we're both in the same division.

    No one likes to trade within the division. But when it's all said and done if the Rams are the only one interested and willing to give a better offer.....then yes, a deal can be done within the division. It will not be the 1st time or the last time a NFL team traded within thier own division...

    Last I checked only a few teams need or can afford a veteran WR like Boldin. Now that the draft is over Boldin stock probably has fallen so giving up Jackson or a 1st round pick for Boldin is probably not even an expectation of the Cards. If anything his stock will continue to fall if he remains disgrunted.... The question is will Boldin be worth the high dollar contract he will demand???

    GO RAMS

    The Cardinals aren't just looking for a better offer. They're looking for a blockbuster offer. That's the reason Boldin wasn't traded on draft day, because Arizona did not get a blockbuster offer for him.

    And they're likely in no rush to trade him in the first place. Boldin still has two years on his contract, and it's unlikely that a player who wants to be traded and get a new deal is going to simply hold out and not show teams that he's worth trading for.

    As for the Cards' expectations, whether or not Boldin's value has slipped a bit since draft day is inconsequential. They're not going to give an NFC West team any bargains when it comes to trading for Boldin. They're going to have the same if not higher expectations, because they know they'll have to face him twice a year.

    Besides, even if the Cardinals are open to trading Boldin within the division, I would think Seattle and San Francisco are in much better positions than the Rams are, since both of those clubs have an extra 2010 first round pick to work with.

    Very valid points Nick. However, Boldin is already becoming a problem in Arizona. He showed up for camp and would not work out claiming to be hurt. This kind of distraction will only hurt a team and at some point the team will have to settle for less and trade Boldin OR let him continue to become a big distraction.

    Prior to the draft I believe the whinners would have been interested in Boldin now that they have Crabs I believe they have little to no interest. I agree Seattle may have some interest but I do not believe anyone is interested in trading a 1st round pick for Boldin. If a 1st round pick was offer to the Cards Boldin would probably be wearing a new uniform.

    Go Rams
