Anquan Boldin...

Postby Esquirekj » Thu Apr 03, 2008 2:36 pm

This may have been discussed previously, but this guy is a beast and is making a LOT less that Fitzgerald who just got paid. He appears to be saying all the right things but I think he could be had for perhaps a 2nd round pick or packaging a 2nd rounder with a lower rounder. Of course we would then have to show him the money, but he, along with "Tana and Randle El in the slot together with Cooley would be a devastating receiving core!
I hate to trade away picks, but if we were to do so to get a young, "big" pro-bowl receiver in his prime, I would be all for it.

He is under contract through 2010. He may seek a restructuring deal after seeing what happens with Chad Johnson. Should not be an issue this year - maybe next.

This comment is ludicrous at best. No way would that even be remotely conceivable. Unless you are referring to some other Anquan Boldin I've never heard of. :lol:

I think that our second rounder and ladell Betts would work to get Boldin. I had heard somewhere before that Arizona wasnt happy with Edge and wanted someone more like Betts. Truthfully I would be fine with this trade as Rock could backup Portis and Mathis could return kicks. From what I have read Portis is going to be the main runner. It wont be divided up much anyway so I think it would be smart to finish off our WR core.

I don't want Rock running. There's a reason why he's 3rd string at best.
...any given Sunday....

RIP #21 Sean Taylor. You will be loved and adored by Redskins fans forever!!!!!

He's been productive in the past. We also have other candidates for backup RB (Mason & Sherton). Betts is useful but not indispensble.

With 647 career yards, I don't think we can really get a good feel for him. He's never started long enough to show what or what he doesn't have, but from what I've seen, I don't want him having significant time behind the QB.

2005 27 199 7.4
2003 107 411 3.8 (starting FB that yr.)

He obviously wasn't a fit with Saunders, but he has produced in the past.

As previously stated, he has 647 career ground yards, I don't feel comfortable saying he's produced, especially since the majority has come almost 1/2 a decade ago. That's in the same boat as saying we should bench JC for TC b/c he had 4 good games in 10 years(in a system he studied for that long)....

He played well 2 yrs ago. I saw his best game against the Rams. He has been productive when given a chance. I'm not suggesting benching Portis, I'm just saying that he is a decent backup.
