after i read he reported to minicamps, i thought it was a fat chance we'd get him. but i dont know. all of the sudden im feeling that by tomorrow we're going to hear the news that he's coming to KC.
azcentral.com clicky clicky
I probably should have put this in the other thread, but such news deserves it's own. I hope Pioli is working the phones right now.

Tony Gonzales- Wanted traded, wish fulfilled.
Jay Cutler- Wanted Traded, wish fulfilled.
Bottom line is, you will not get the true production out of a player if he does not want to be there, case in point Chad Johnson, or OCHO SINCO whatever. So this trade is very possible, and in fact Boldin is likely to be traded somewhere before pre season starts.
That being said...
Jay on the other hand I could see holding out till week 10 (week players have to show up to earn a paycheck for that season).
But you're right most teams will entertain the thought of trading/releasing a disgruntled pro bowler (don't forget Edge)
Regardless of any rumors about the Cardinals reducing the asking price, they will still require more than we have to offer. The rumors are said to be untrue about reducing the asking price of a 1st and a second to just a second round pick. I would not look for this to happen any time soon if at all. The Cardunals are willing to sit his *** if he doesn't want to contribute and they don't get a reasonable offer.
Note: As of draft day the Cardinals had only been contacted by 3 teams and heard only 1 offer. ONE!!!
It's all nothing but rumors and wishful thinking..
