The What Ifs Of a Boldin Trade
Adam Caplan: Philadelphia tried to trade for Larry Fitzgerald and tried to sign Randy Moss so I would imagine they would have some interest in him.
Tampa Bay has had all sorts of problems getting someone to play opposite veteran WR Joey Galloway and they have a lot of salary cap space. So it wouldn't be a surprise if they had interest in him should Arizona make Boldin available.
AR: What is the market value for a player like Boldin?
AC: According to a league source, Boldin's current contract averages about $5.665 per season. I would imagine he'll try to get in the $8 million per season range. Larry Fitzgerald's new deal averages about $10 million per season.
In a trade, I could see Boldin going for a second-round pick but not more than that because of his injury history. He's a really good player but it's hard to justify a higher pick based on the fact he's only played two full seasons out of five.
AR: Do you think the Cardinals would receive equal value in return this late in the game?
AC: I think a second-round pick would be fair in general based on Boldin's production in his five years of play. And given the regular season starts in two weeks, that's pretty good value.
