Eagles’ offer for Boldin wasn’t enough for Cardinals

The second “firm trade offer” for Pro Bowl WR Anquan Boldin prior to the draft was made by the Philadelphia Eagles, and it involved a third-round draft pick and disgruntled CB Sheldon Brown, the Arizona Republic reports.

The offer wasn’t enough for the Cardinals to deal the three-time Pro Bowler.

Earlier this week, Eagles coach Andy Reid suggested in a radio interview that the Cardinals’ asking price for Boldin was too high — a first-, third- and fifth-round draft choice, not to mention a new contract for Boldin around $10 million per year.

The other team interested in Boldin was the Bears. Chicago GM Jerry Angelo told local newspapers that his team offered a second-round pick for Boldin.
