    Titans Talking To Cardinals About Boldin
    Posted by Aaron Wilson on April 23, 2009, 10:47 p.m.


    The Tennessee Titans are exploring the possibility of a trade for Pro Bowl wide receiver Anquan Boldin, making inquiries with the Arizona Cardinals about a prospective deal, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.

    Citing sources, the report states that the two sides aren’t on the verge of striking a deal two days prior to the NFL Draft.

    The Titans could definitely use a proven wide receiver to boost a dormant passing game. Tennessee recently made a bid for Torry Holt, but he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Holding 10 draft picks, the Titans are capable of wheeling and dealing to try to obtain Boldin.

    “It’s safe to say we’re always trying to get the team better, so we’ll continue to monitor various situations,’’ Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt said. “But there’s a numbers of players that are discussed at this point and time, that’s kind of the way it works.”

    Other receivers that are reportedly of interest to the Titans via trade: Braylon Edwards, Roscoe Parrish and Chad Johnson.

    “There’s always that potential,’’ Reinfeldt said. “I wouldn’t rule it out. … It would have to be a situation of equity and you’d consider it then.’’

    The Titans signed former Pittsburgh Steelers third wide receiver Nate Washington to a free agent deal this offseason, but want to continue to bolster their receiving corps with a potential No. 1 wideout.

    It doesn't bother me a whole bunch...Don't get me wrong...Boldin is a beast and he would make their offense better...

    But this doesn't worry me...

    True. He can't throw the ball to himself.

    Well it worries the hell out of me. The Titans were a top team all season with no WR's except for Gage who came on well at the end. Bolden is an Elite stud WR that could help out their offense tremendously. No way do I want this to happen. Damnit come on Giants, make a move on Bolden!

    I love watching Anquan Boldin play. I would hate to see him in Tennessee. We don't have a corner that could stop him.

    I don't understand the fear of Boldin...

    If he stayed in Zona we'd have had to face him atleast once anyways...

    Besides that we still have Fitzgerald, Wayne, Gonzalez, Manning, Jones Drew, Chris Johnson and every other offensive star to worry about...

    He's just one player. Does the addition of Boldin offset the loss of Haynseworth? I don't think so...

    If the Texans lose to the Titans it won't be because they've added Boldin. Does he make them better? Absolutely, without question. Does one addition scare me? No. It's football. Flip the coin, lets see who's on top when we finish.

    Chris Johnson getting better scares me more than Boldin.

    If they make the deal, I hope they trade their draft away for him. At least a 1st and 3rd.

    When the Tits get a decent QB to throw to these recievers, I'll start worrying.

    This would be a good move for Titans (as long as they don't give up too much).

    I don't like things that are good moves for the Titans.

    My thoughts exactly. Hopefully this won't come to pass as I'm not sure Bud would give Boldin the type of contract he'll likely be wanting.

    This would definitely suck. I just don't see it happening though.

    Oh yeah, getting an ELITE WR on a team in our division that had the best record in the NFL for most of the season without any WR's is nothing to even worry about right? After all it's not like we're competing with them for the division and a playoff spot. You're right Bolden can't make them a better team at all.

    Anything good that the Titans do makes it harder for us because they're in our division. Anything good that the Texans do is bad for everyone else in the division as well. The Titans don't need to prove that they're a better team than the Texans right now, the Texans will need to prove that they are a better team than the Titans. The Titans getting Bolden would mean just another thorn in the side of our ass for many years just like Reggie Wayne has been. Hopefully this doesn't happen.

    What are you talking about? He never said that. In fact, he said Bolding would make them better. All NFL teams get better and worse all the time. They are constantly changing. A football team consists of 11 offensive players. Adding Bolding will help them, but its not going to make them invincible.

    The Reggie Wayne argument is weak. Peyton + Wayne >>>>>> Collins + Boldin

    Agree. I'd rather see them get a receiver than keep the DT of Matt Schaub's nightmares. Adding a WR like Boldin makes them better but it still doesn't make them equal to what they were with Fat Albert. Like BigBull said he can't throw the ball to himself. If we do what we need to do this year then we can deal with this. Also agree with the Chris Johnson comment. He gets a lot better and it's going to be trouble for everyone they face.

    Why doesn't anyone fear LenDale White or VY getting better?
