This is the first news I have heard of the Chiefs going after anyone, and I gotta say I like the guy they have chosen to go after. Granted, we're not the frontrunners, but anything can happen I suppose.

From Rotoworld.com:


The National Football Post's Aaron Wilson reports the Patriots are the front-runners to land Anquan Boldin.
The Ravens and Chiefs are also pursuing Boldin, so the Pats have competition. Say this for New England: they know a good value when they see one. At the cost of a third-rounder, Boldin is a no-brainer. His next team has him under contract cheaply for the 2010 season with a year to work out a contract. If no deal can be reached, the cost was still just a third-rounder for one season of a possible difference-maker.

i will take Boldin for a 3rd rounder, but i just don't see it happening.

I would take him for our late 2nd round pick. Are you telling me he's not worth it?

I'd much prefer to do it for our 3rd rounder. We hold a higher pick than they do in every round, so the ball should be in our court.

Well actually it's in Boldin's, because he is going into the last year of his contract and no team is going to agree to trade for him without a long term deal already in place. Is there any way he would pick us over Baltimore or New England?

I doubt they leave it up to him. I'm sure Arizona, knowing it has 3 takers, will try to get another team to give something "extra", be it a late pick this year or next year.

If they can't agree to a long term contract as part of the trade then absolutely! While Boldin is a great player why on earth would you give away a draft pick for just one year of production?

I get that there's the possibility but do you think the guy is going to stick around if he thinks we're a few years off from a super bowl run?

Again though.. Boldin has just 1 year on his contract remaining. I don't see anybody giving the Cardinals a 2nd or 3rd round pick for 1 year of Anquan Boldin. They're going to want to get an agreement with Boldin for a long-term extension before making the trade. This is why I don't think we have a great chance. He can simply say to the Chiefs, "I'm not going to sign an extension if you trade for me" and they're immediately out.

Gotcha...didn't pick that up from your earlier post. Makes sense though.

I would love to get him for the 3rd round pick. i dont think the cards will go for that though. But I would not be to upset if we did have to give the 2nd for him. We do have an extra 2nd round pick so it would just be like any other year 1 pick in the 2nd so I dont think that it would be that big of a loss for us.

The Patriots are reportedly pulling out! It looks like it's going to comedown to us or the Ravens.

As someone else pointed out, it's essentially replacing Tony G with Anquan Boldin...I'd feel much better if it just cost a 3rd.

i heard today the chiefs are also going after Keven Walters of the texans.
Shocked Pioli is doing anything but saying it and signing them are two different things.

Is Boldin actually that fast. i thought we needed a burner opposite of Bowe? Unless we trade Bowe?

I am, without question, telling you that HE IS NOT WORTH IT.

this is the same pick that we got for Tony Gonzalez.

THEIR LAST FIVE YEARS:

TONY GONZALEZ

G REC YDS AVG TD

16 83 867 10.4 6
16 96 1,058 11.0 10
16 99 1,172 11.8 5
15 73 900 12.3 5
16 78 905 11.6 2


ANQUAN BOLDIN

G REC YDS AVG TD

15 84 1,024 12.2 4
12 89 1,038 11.7 11
12 71 853 12.0 9
16 83 1,203 14.5 4
14 102 1,402 13.7 7

Pretty comparable, huh? except that Tony G didn't miss games for injury. Boldin's health is causing him to slip.

Two years ago would you have traded Tony G for Boldin straight up? What if it meant that you didn't get EITHER player last year, and only got boldin after he got injured yet again?

No thanks.

3rd rounder at the highest, and even then, I'm not sure.

With the draft as deep as it is this year, there is a lot of first round talent that will get pushed into the second round. The value at that pick is too high to spend on an injury prone player who has one year left on a contract and wants to be paid top dollar.

Schefter reported that Q is on the Ravens for a 3rd and 4th rounder.

Boldin and a 5th rounder for a 3rd and 4th rounder. 4 years $28 million

Not me, not worth a first rounder to me. I'd rather have Berry or a new LT.

Marshall, one of the top 5 receivers in the league, isn't worth a 1st round pick?! Wrong! We're just not going to do business with the Donkeys!

fairladyZ
03-05-2010, 07:42 PM
ya i think any other team will get away with less for him, chiefs will have to give up 1st to get him from the donks.

DC_Chiefsfan
03-05-2010, 08:01 PM
Well we've let Walter go too. I think we must at least nibble at B Marshall. We're going to be just as screwed as we were at WR last year. We haven't even signed Chambers yet. I am NOT liking our free agency so far. Make it happen Pioli.

Marshall is going to cost a first (and maybe a third I can't remember). I don't think it's worth giving the Donks the 5th overall. Not to mention he's gonna want a LOT of money

DC_Chiefsfan
03-05-2010, 08:17 PM
They tendered him at the 1st round level. But that doesn't mean we couldn't trade something else for him. I would be willing to swap our 1st round picks and give them a 2nd and fifth for him. Plus, he's worth a LOT of money! But it won't happen, so it doesn't really matter I guess. Let's just sign chambers and move on to FA OL shall we?

If I'm Boldin, why would I want to come back to play for Haley? I didn't think they had the best relationship in Arizona?

KottkeKU
03-05-2010, 09:02 PM
why would you want Brandon Marshall..the one who purposely takes plays off, and beats women. And he's a Donk. There is no other typer of player i would rather have less than Brandon Marshall. I can't believe i am hearing this after the whole LJ fiasco....he is like that but 10x worse.... i don't care how good he is at receiver, he didn't win them a superbowl, or any playoff games either. *F* Brandon Marshall....

DC_Chiefsfan
03-05-2010, 09:18 PM
Because here he would be surrounded by great coaches, good attitudes and a chance to stick it to the donkeys and McDouche twice a year.

But again, it doesn't matter. It would never happen.

Coach
03-05-2010, 09:24 PM
I didn't want Marshall. But I was secretly hoping for Kevin Walter to be our possession #2 WR.

Hopefully we can get Chambers back and draft a project WR.

DC_Chiefsfan
03-05-2010, 09:26 PM
Good call. I think that's our only WR option now. Besides, I love Chambers and really do hope he re-signs!

Drunker Hillbilly
03-05-2010, 09:33 PM
Marshall WILL sign with Seatlle so we should focus on resigning Chambers.

Weather he does or not I dont think that theres anyway we get him. We wont want to give up a pick in the top 5 to a divison rival and they wont want to make a deal with us.

I want to see SOMEONE that is a free agent signed. I dont want us to just draft a rookie WR.

I would have loved to see him in KC. But I am not surprised at all that he ended up going somewere eles. Oh well.

There is still Laverneus Coles and Antwan Randel El. Both are decent players. Randel El has been on a terrible team since he left the steelers.
