One day after the Arizona Cardinals said they would listen to trade offers for Anquan Boldin, the Pro Bowl wide receiver appeared on The Michael Irvin Show on ESPN Radio in Dallas and talked about his future. This according to The Dallas Morning News:
- Boldin said he’s open to getting traded to any team, especially to the NFC East, where the Eagles and Giants need an elite receiver.
- Boldin, who said he just has a player-coach relationship with former Cardinals (offensive) coordinator Todd Haley, said he wouldn’t mind playing for him in Kansas City.
- As for getting traded, Boldin said: “I just want to get it resolved. It’s been going on way too long.” Later, he said: “It would hurt, but at the same time, change is necessary. My only problem has been management, always has been.”
Giants general manager Jerry Reese told reporters that “we won’t force anything” in a possible trade for Boldin. The New York Daily News reports that the city’s other team, the Jets, have called the Cardinals about Boldin.
The Baltimore Sun, citing a league source, also reports that the Ravens have expressed interest in Boldin. The Sun asked Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome if the team had contacted the Cardinals about Boldin. His response: “With the draft coming up, I’ve had a chance to talk to eight different teams over the past 48 hours.”
