    My dad told me about a rumor he heard somewhere on another site about how there may be interest in the Patriots sending a 2nd round pick to the cardinals for Boldin.

    Has anyone else heard this?

    I wouldn't be surprised if it happens, but I think the rumor is probably bogus. It hasn't been reported here nor have any of the media that I know of reported it.

    What I'm guessing he saw/read is that (A) Boldin might be available for a 2010 2, and (B) the Pats need a receiver and happen to have three 2s.

    It might happen, but part of the problem is that Boldin wants a bigger contract.

    Bodden wants a contract bigger than Larry Fitz .So yes we can get him and make him the higest paid player till brady is resigned.

    not sure what message it send when you sign some one long term and the highest paid player when players like vince , brady ,mankins ,bodden waiting to get a contract.

    If any year was the right year, this might be it.

    Moss, Edelman, Tate, Boldin is a good start. If (big if?) Welker is back after starting on PUP, that could make a decent top of the WR list for next year. And yes, I recognize Tate hasn't proven anything yet.

    If the Patriots got Boldin, Brady might break his 2007 records LOL

    First, wanting and getting are two different things.

    Second, Boldin might have come down from his demands as Fitzgerald has consistently putting more and more distance between him and Boldin talent-wise. The fact that the Cards could only get a third rounder in a trade for him last year when they offered him up last offseason might have hit Boldin with the reality of his real worth.

    Boldin is 30 years old too.

    This..... Boldin isn't stupid. I suspect for a decent salary and the chance to play here he might well go for that.

    Not sure I want to invest in Boldin. The 2nd rounder is okay, but he will be expensive. All the offense really needs is a David Givens, not a 3rd superstar caliber WR. Plus he's injury prone.

    I know, he makes the offense look 'unstoppable'... 2007 offense was also unstoppable until the game that mattered.

    That game aside, I think we'd all take our chances with an "unstoppable" offense.

    Regarding the thread, it's not a reasonable rumor until we know the source. There's too much crap out there to just say "another site".

    But......
    Theres money in the kitty. And Moss may not be around in 2011. No-one knows how Welker is going to rebound.

    Fortune favours the brave. This would be a brave move.

    I agree but, going into 2007 we didn't the needs we have this offseason. Moss was acquired with a 4th rounder and played for peanuts that year too. I just think we don't need 3 superstars at 1 position (aside from LB, that'd be nice). It makes sense if the Patriots don't want to keep Moss around after next year, but again the injury issue... is Boldin worth relying on for the big bucks? Our best teams were deep at the WR rather than one or two superstars and no one beyond that to rely on.

    Agree with those points. But as I said in the other post, I'd rather not go the superstar route with WR's. If Welker is going to be retained when his contract runs out we will have to pay him very nice too.

    Well, if Welker doesn't come back, they probably need more than a Givens. Besides, this could be Moss' last year as a Patriot.

    We have gaping holes at OL, LB, have many of our own FA. Why would BB spend a 2Rd pick on 30yr old WR who missed 4 games in '07 and '08. This would be CAP lunacy. For a change use the Draft to build the team up. Stop chasing after these FA.

    BTW, we had a chance to draft Bolding coming out of FSU, but passed him up for ? wanna guess ?...........all world WR Bethel Johnson.:bricks:

    play here? at least with the cards, he won a playoff game?

    what would be so enticing for him to want to be here instead?

    zip, except for straight ca$h homey. Why would he want to split the ball with Moss, and ventually Welker ? This would be Adalius, part deux !

    No

    Boldin is good but Welker will miss some of the season and Moss is 3 years older and coming off a pretty bad season injury wise.

    If anything we'll just have a more balanced WR corps and Brady can get back to spreading the ball around to people that can catch

    Have another future HoF QB throwing you the ball

    HoF QBs don't grow on trees. If I were WR with not much post season success I certainly would love the chance to play with a guy who is a proven winner.

    Brees, Manning, Brady, any of those guys would suit me fine

    My uncle's cousin told me his neighbor's boss had lunch with a guy whose wife told him that a guy she works with overheard one of his coworkers say that a guy on the internet read that someone on another site posted somewhere that someone read on some forum that someone in the organization said he heard at a meeting it was a third round pick.

    Has anyone else heard this?

    The expression actually is Fortune favors the foolish, or Fortune favors fools.

    It is a Chinese probverb:
    Yong ren duo hou fu.

    But use the right expression and I agree:

    Fortune favors the foolish.

    This would be a foolish move.

    In Chinese, perhaps. In Latin, it's Fortuna favet fortibus (or, sometimes, audaci)—"Fortune favors the bold."

    I think the chance to have a Brady, Manning, or Brees throwing you the ball is enticing to any WR. Besides, if the Cards or anyone else are not going to give him a new deal before his current deal expires, his best option is to go to a team with a great QB who will get him the ball and give him stats that will get him a big contract. Will Matt Leinhart get him those stats? I doubt it.

    I think it is ridiculous to believe that no free agents want to come to New England. It might not have the mystique that it had 5 years ago, but it is a team that has won six of the last seven division titles, haven't had less than 10 wins since 2002, has gone to two AFC Championships in the last five years, and gone to one Super Bowl. There is still a lot of reason to want to come to New England. This team isn't the Raiders.

    Yes but how do you know that's what Boldin wants? Hasn't he indicated that he wants to be paid #1 WR money? Correct me if I'm wrong but that year he was unhappy and whining, did that not happen during a SUPER BOWL RUN?

    These aren't even his biggest issues, the guy misses alot of games. We are taking a bigtime risk if you sacrifice a 2nd rounder and give him the money he's looking for.
