Trade one previous unhappy player that got his payday, for a current unhappy player who wants his payday. Forget about it. I for one would be very surprised if we traded for Boldin.
I would be surprised also and dont think we will. Also, like a previous post has said Boldin will be in AZ through 08, im just saying that I would rather let go of LJ now for Boldin rather than trade him later. Besides, this is all just hypothetical.
For those that don't think trading Cottom for Bodin would be a good deal, your crazy!!!!!!!!! It would take atleast two more guys in the deal but Boldin is the real deal!!!! Remember, I see him play every game and he is a top 5 receiver in this league. I would take him before Chad Johnson or Harrison at this point. His stats are great!!! Now, I'm not sure how he would be affected by not having a QB but over the last several seasons, he has been very, very productive! He is great at getting yards after the catch so Brodie's dump off could be affective. He's still young too! Like I said, I wouldn't be holding my breath for this to happen because of him still having 3 years on this contract. Besides most of Rosentool's players have ended up getting things straightened out with their current teams anyway and not one of his players that have been pissing and moaning about wanting more money have missed one day of training camp!!
I think the Chiefs will wait to see if another receiver emerges out of their existing crop of WR's. The kind of move you are proposing is more likely to happen next year.
