  • Boldin to Ravens

    The Cards traded Anquan Boldin and a 5th round pick to the Ravens for the Ravens' 3rd and 4th round picks. The Ravens then signed him to a 4 year deal. How much of a step back will the Cardinals' passing offense, or offense in general, take next year also losing Warner?

      Most likely a major one. The Cardinals were going to need all the help they could get with a shaky Leinart taking over, and this move certainly puts more pressure on those narrow shoulders. Things could get ugly in Arizona.

        I agree I'm glad this went down Leinart with those good receivers last year was not great. Take away Boldin and I think he will be much worse.

          I would have traded our 3rd and one of our 5th rounders for him and Arizonas 5th. That is a better deal then what the Ravens gave them and if I had to I would not ask for Arizonas 5th in return to better the deal.

          Ravens picks offered:............... Rams picks offered:
          3rd Round 24th pick ................ 3rd Round 1st Pick (23 picks higher)
          4th Round 25th pick ................ 5th Round 1st Pick (8 picks below)


          Rams Draft picks:
          1st Round 1st pick
          2nd Round 1st pick
          3rd Round Anquan Boldin (#1 WR ability and big target)
          4th Round 1st pick
          5th Round 24th pick (Received from Phily for Spoon)
          5th Round 26th pick (Received from Arizona in Boldin Trade)
          6th Round 1st pick
          7th Round 1st pick
          7th Round 19th pick (From Atlanta)

          Man I wish we could have got him.:disapointed:

          Imagine an offense if we drafted QB and TE in rounds 1 and 2 and got Bolden with our third rounder. That means the first three rounds of the draft would produce three likely starters:
          QB-Sam Bradford
          TE-Rob Grankowski 6'6 265
          RB-Jackson
          FB-Karney
          WR-Boldin
          WR-L. Robinson w/backups of Avery, Gibson, Amendola, Burton

              this really sounds like a steal for the Ravens and for only those 2 lower picks, I would have loved to have Boldin on the Rams, would have been a great player to have if the Rams are going QB with the 1st pick and yes I think the Cards offense will suffer without him and Warner.

                  Re: Boldin to Ravens

                  Sometimes when trades like this happen, I wonder..."Why?"

                  I would have given our 3rd + 4th rounders for Boldin. Those are much better picks. If not at least our 3rd, maybe a 5th or so.

                  Our third rounder is much higher than what the Ravens had to offer.

                  But, we never really get into all the heavy lifting in Free Agency. The Rams tread lightly and make small moves. I didn't even know we signed A.J. Feeley until more than a day or two after it happened. Meanwhile, I'm seeing Boldin sign, trades happening, Peppers gone...

                  One offseason, I would like to see the Rams make a move that makes me just go,

                  "Whoah! Did we REALLY just do that!"

                  Even if I don't think it's a great move, I would like to see our staff become a little more bold. Go after Antonio Bryant, chase down a player for a 3rd and 4th round pick that WILL be a starter and leader for this team. Do something, and make a cannonball splash. Stepping in puddles never won any rings.

                    I would have loved to have done this. But the question you have to ask yourself is, with all the teams wanting to trade for Boldin, why would they choose to trade within the division they play and play him twice a year? If they trade him to another conference they dont have to play against him nearly as often.

                      Guys, its not as simple as being willing to trade the same picks (or even slightly better picks). To make this deal, you had to be willing to pay Boldin money, something the rams are not willing to do in any kind of material way with the sale pending. Hard currency (ie cash) is something that teams are clinging onto right now, building their warchests for the upcoming lockout. In the case of the Rams, chip isnt going to lay out big money for a guy who is going to benefit new ownership, rather than him. THe Rams will spend as little money as they can, while still complying what are likely to be the ordinary course conduct of business covenants contained in the purchase agreement with Mr. Khan.

                        WR Boldin on the way out of Baltimore?
                        by Nick
                        From Alex Marvez of Fox Sports...

                        A source told FOXSports.com that the Ravens want wide receiver Anquan Boldin to renegotiate the $6 million base salary he is set to earn in 2013. Otherwise, Boldin will be released before Tuesday’s start of the free-agent signing period.

                        Remember, Boldin stated this offseason that if the Ravens cut him and he didn't return, he'd retire rather than sign with another team. Will he stay true to that word?

                        Ravens angered over Porter's 'cheap shot'
                        by Nick
                        BALTIMORE - The Baltimore Ravens won't soon forget the hit Pittsburgh linebacker Joey Porter leveled on an injured tight end Todd Heap during the second quarter of Sunday's 30-13 rout of the Steelers.

                        Heap twisted his right ankle on the previous play when he gingerly took his place on the line as Ravens quarterback Kyle Boller prepared to spike the ball. As Boller thrust the ball downward, Porter shoved Heap backward with a show of brute force.

                        Heap could barely lift himself off the turf and was removed for the remainder of the game.

                        Afterward, the Ravens were livid over Porter's seemingly unnecessary hit.

                        ``It just shows what type of character that guy has,'' linebacker Ray Lewis said. ``When you take a cheap shot like that and just try to hurt somebody, it goes way outside of your character and shows what type of spirit he really has. You just pray for him.''

                        Ravens cornerback Chris McAlister called Porter an unprintable name and said, ``There's no reason for anyone to take a cheap shot like that.''

                        Baltimore coach Brian Billick wondered aloud why the rules would permit such an unsportsmanlike act.

                        ``We are awful concerned about receivers turning their shoulders, going forward on the line of scrimmage, and we talk endlessly about pass interference down the field, but something like that is evidently legal,'' Billick said. ``How about that?''

                        Porter contended Heap might have been bluffling.

                        ``It looked like he was hobbling, but at the same time, I don't know if he was fake hobbling,'' Porter said. ``I've seen a lot of guys that looked hurt and kept playing. They fall on the ground and get up and run a play.

                        ``I didn't hit him, I pushed him. It's not like I took a cheap shot at him and ran in there and hit him. I pushed him with my hands. This is football.''

                        Porter figured the Ravens expressed their displeasure on the field as a way of getting the fans riled up.

                        ``It's just a thing to get the crowd into it, to boo me and make me out to be the bad guy,'' he said. ``So I'm fine with that.''
