They would have had to do some serious maneuvering/cutting to get Boldin. He had a great postseason, no doubt. During the regular season, Boldin was going to get you about 60 yards/game. For $6 million. And you've probably created a hole at DE or LG. I can't blame the Texans front office for not making a move like this.

Seahawks & 49ers are going to be some great games!

This is basically a 7th round pick (i.e. effectively nothing) for a guy who arguably was the single biggest reason the Ravens are getting fit for rings.
and here I as, all convinced by Texans fans that it was Jacoby Jones fault,, effort that won the ring....

Damn, gonna have to re-write history now...call Stalin for input

He wasn't a Free Agent= Ravens traded a 2nd for him.

That's with Flacco throwing him the ball. Flacco is the greatest QB in the world & all that, but he attempts too many low percentage passes.

Especially if we're talking about picking him up a few years ago like eriadoc is saying, Bolden & Aj would've beasted.

My bad- it was a 3rd and 4th with the Ravens recieving a 6th,

either way, it sounded as if you thought he was a FA back in 2010

Yes, and Boldin had cap hits between $6.5-$7.5 million through those seasons. Again, it comes back to resource allocation and where the Texans would have had to cut back to bring in Boldin. Until 2012, the Texans passing offense was the least of their worries.

If you say you wish we had Boldin, please state who you'd want cut to have him.

Fcco's cap hit this seaon is less than Boldin's would have been- thats the deal with back loaded contracts with huge SB in the front....its the way thingsare done...

Yes, but Rick Smith doesn't seem to have a clue on how to get the most out of trade. It's like he doesn't even care to make the effort. Not saying that I know that for sure, but every off season there always seems to be players on the trading block for cheap and we're never in the running it seems. Rick's build through the draft only mentality has always irritated the hell out of me. It's a stubborn approach along with Kubiak's mind set as well. It just seems like we're never players in any sweepstakes for certain guys that can be had on the cheap in different trade scenarios. This lack of cap space irritated the hell out of me last off season and I talked about the problem at WR a lot in here, and all I ever heard from the typicals in here were how these young rookies were going to have these great seasons and carry the load just because.......Now we're a year away and all those same people are begging for WR's, and we still don't have the cap room to go out and find a new weapon to help out the passing game.

This will always be a problem with Rick Smith unfortunately

Well, I am no capologist, nor do I pretend to be. I will say that I would rather have had Boldin on the team for the past three seasons than Kevin Walter, one of either OD or Dreessen, Anthony Hill was here in 2010, one of either Dan Outofboundsky or Leinart, Bryant Johnson, Amobi Okoye, or frankly, Kareem Jackson, who still hasn't earned his 2010 or 2011 salary. So how you work all that out, I don't know, but I feel like they could have afforded Boldin if they wanted to. And AJ + Boldin would damn sure have been an improvement over AJ + OD and the Wonder Scrubs.

Yeah, every decision has consequences on the salary cap, but that reasoning kicks as hard as it shoots.

EDIT - I just had to go remind myself what the Orlovsky deal was. It was 3 years, $9M. I think that could have been money better spent on Boldin, personally.

It's a No-Go for the Texans.
You signed a guy who can shut down Boldin (J Jo); why would you want Boldin on your roster?
