The Cardinals are reportedly asking for a 1st and a 3rd round pick, which may be too pricey for most teams.
Michael Lombardi has devoted column space to discussing Boldin trade options in his most recent column:

Lombardi notes: "For me as an evaluator, Boldin is the cream of the crop of available receivers. To score in the NFL, you have to make big plays in the passing game. Boldin gives an offense big plays, and he can make all the tough inside catches on critical third downs. In addition, he gains significant yards after the catch and creates match-up problems for a defense, which has to make sure it has the right corner on him — to cover, but more importantly to tackle him in a one-on-one situation. Boldin will destroy small, light corners in any one-on-one situation."
Finally, Pro Football Weekly is reporting that the Ravens are interested in possibly trading for Boldin, though they may balk at the asking price:
