We need a Receiver! Why not take a proven WR??

Because he would want a ton of $ and a contract extension right away, and we need to re-sign Suggs, Gaither, and Ngata before we give a WR any $. However, a first round WR where we pick wouldn't cost all that much money.

Ok, Sounds understandable!

But a 1st Round Pick would cost lots of Money tooo

Well I'd love to see Boldin a Raven but his agent has eluded that he would want Larry Fitzgerald $ aka 10-12 million a year, and we can't afford that. At #26 a 1st rd WR would only cost about 2 million this year, and then escalate that by a couple mil over the following 4 years.

A 1st and a 3rd for Anquan?
I'd do it. He's safer than guessing on DHB or Kenny Britt as draft picks.
We'd still have 2nd and 4th round picks for an ILB, or DE.
Anquan would be the missing piece to a young offense and would compliment Clayton, and Mason perfectly.
Trade for Boldin, and draft Jarron Gilbert, and Frantz Joseph

I'd take my chances with a DHB or Britt. They'd be cheaper and younger. Whereas boldin is 26 ad with his style of play I could see him start to slow down soon. I say keep our draft picks and the money and use it for our franchise players (I.e nagata gaither and suggs) then take a WR on the first.

There might be a legit chance at this happening. Despite what I said earlier, he's still a beast and gives us a great weapon, although I'd be bummed out that we have to give a first for him :(

According to Sun reporter Jamison Hensley, who broke the story, the Ravens are willing to pay first- and third-round picks for Boldin. Then they'll have to re-do his contract; that, after all, is the reason he's forcing his way out of Arizona.

Problem is if we get another Travis Taylor we will be pissed for not going after Anquan. That is even extreme, if we even draft just a Mark Clayton type performer will will be upset. The fact is we really are expecting our first rounder to develop into a stud WR which we disparately need but WR's in the draft. As long as it doesn't cost much more than a first and a third I want that guaranteed weapon for Flacco which he desperately needs. The longer we have to wait for the weapons to develop the more Flacco will suffer which could ultimately ruin his confidence. If we don't get Flacco formidable weapons asap he could be a broken down mentally QB before these WR's even come to fruition. With that said if we don't get him we still need to go wideout. After signing Foxworth and re-signing Rolle I would be in full support of taking 2 WR's with our first 3 picks as it's such a crap shoot you don't want to put all your marbles on one receiver.

Flacco is going to need Gaither more than Boldin. Jared is a RFA after this year, I'd rather not let go of our best OL because we gave all of his money to a WR...

Yea I think I heard it was just for a year. I say as long as we can resign Suggs/Gaither/Ngata I am ok with getting him. It's not worth messing up either our O-line/Pass rush/D-line IMO

04-17-2009, 02:38 PM
Way too much money for him. He's gonna want at least 8.5 million a year. At 26, we can get 5 years, 8.5 million for a wideout. We need to resign Suggs, Ngata, and Gaither.

My personal opinion? He's a bit of a diva, and I'd rather have a player who will work hard w/ Flacco to develop chemistry. That's something we'd more likely to get in the draft.

The Giants want Edwards.
So let's see what happen.

lordquas
04-18-2009, 11:13 AM
This trade could happen on draft day, so there's still a lot of time to think about the decision.

PROS- He's a lot safer pick then developing a rookie. He would compliment Mason, Clayton, and Heap very well. Would make our offense soooo much better.

CONS- He's been injured in the past. He's expensive. He'll be 29. We'd also be loosing a 1st and 3rd, if thats what it is.

I'd love if we got him, mostly because he's dope and i've always wanted him on the Ravens. Baltimore would still have 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 6th round picks, where we can address DT, RT, ILB, and even a WR.
Imagine Anquan Boldin a Raven.
2nd- OT Troy Kropog
4th- DE Clinton McDonald
5th- ILB Frantz Joseph
6th- WR Greg Carr

I'd dig it

EdReedUnstoppable

ccB
04-19-2009, 02:51 PM
I am for it, as long as it doesn't mess up our ability to re-sign Gaither/Ngata/Suggs and doesn't include Suggs in the deal. I am not completely educated on the financial structure of the team so I don't know if we'd have the space to get all that done or not, it seems like we wouldn't because I'd imagine all three of those players would be getting big deals and you'd have to add on a big deal for Boldin. But I think adding Boldin to our pre-existing roster would make us a super bowl caliber team.

04-19-2009, 03:22 PM
I'm pretty sure we don't have the cap space to take on Boldin's CURRENT contract in a trade, so we'd have to cut/trade somebody.

We Taged Suggs Two Times! And never come to an Extension!!
We shouldn't forget about this.

But, our Defense lost this year great players, and i don't want to lose another one!

So, i like to have him in Baltimore, but if the Price is too much high, we should stay and Draft an WR in the 1st and get another Travis Taylor

I don't see Suggs sticking around with you guys after this season. Afterall, you've franchised him twice and haven't been able to come to an agreement on an extension. I think that indicates Suggs wants to hit the open market, and once he does that, he's gonna get a BIG contract.

I think you guys should definitely go after Boldin. There's no guarantee that anyone you draft does ****, but you know Boldin will put up all-pro numbers and vastly imrpove your offense.

TACKLE
04-19-2009, 06:17 PM
I'd been on board for a trade. I understand that the contract is an issue but the Ravens are in a position to win now. I think a WR like Boldin would help push them over the top. Plus I'll take Boldin any day over Britt/DHB/Nicks/Harvin. If those guys hit their peak, they might be almost as good as Boldin. I just think he's too talented to pass up.

Ravens1991

hahaha i've never seen that picture.

I'm not a big fan of the trade, mostly because of Bolding making us break the bank for an almost 29 year old receiver who's always dinged up. I just don't see him putting up huge numbers in our offense.

Also from what I've read the talks started out with Suggs for Boldin straight up, but we turned that down, then the Cards offered Boldin for our 1st and 3rd, but this is the first time I've heard about Willis being included.

Another rumor is our 1st and Todd Heap for Boldin. Fenikz (NFLDC user) said AZ radio stations are reporting a rumored deal involving Ray Rice as well. Whatever happens it looks like we are the front runners to land Boldin, if he goes anywhere that is.

You clearly don't know much about the Ravens.. Suggs isn't leaving he wants to stay here and likes playing with Ray.

As for drafting I think of all the Teams in the NFL we draft better then any other Team. We get good value out of just about every pick we make.

I do agree we should be out to get Boldin but not at the expense of jeopardizing the future he is 29.

ChefMike
04-20-2009, 08:20 AM
If Willis is in the deal we are in good shape..and I think that would be a steal.. but it does mean we are drafting a RB early in the draft... Rice is good and Le'Ron is great but we need another home run hitter in the backfield...

Holy ****! Now that is a deal I could live with. Boldin's contract would kinda be close to what McGahee's is, and there fore it wouldn't affect what we do in the future so much. McGahee + a 2nd wouldn't be too bad.

I also could see the Heap deal going down. It almost seems like a perfect fit (he also went to ASU like Suggs) for both Heap and ARI. Heap's contract isn't quite at McGahee's level, but it would at least cancel out about half of Boldin's wants.

No way that Arizona takes McGahee and a 2nd?! I think its going to be a 1st and McGahee. That way we can sign fit him under the cap then we take a RB in the 3rd... and draft BPA in the 2nd...

BmoreBlackByrdz
04-20-2009, 05:34 PM
What about Todd Heap + Willis McGahee and a 2nd or 3rd? McGahee and a 2nd isn't enough for a superstar like Boldin, but throw Heap in there and I think its a good deal, favoring us though. Arizona gets Todd Heap, Willis McGahee and a 2nd rounder, we get Anquan Boldin. We lose McGahee's huge contract, but add Anquan's, which might be a bit bigger, but its worth it since he will have a much bigger impact on our offense.

Still kinda upset that if we do end up with Anquan, no matter how, it's gonna make it real hard for us to re-sign Ngata, Gaither, and Suggs. If it comes to that, I'd rather us take a chance on Britt, Nicks or Heyward-Bey and save the money to re-sign our current franchse studs.
Basically-

Suggs, Gaither, Ngata, draft pick WR > Anquan Boldin

Ravens1991
04-20-2009, 05:35 PM
I have seen Heap McGahee and Boldin rumors. But sunspot.net reports ARI wont change there 1st and a 3rd asking price. We do refuse to do that so we will see...

SeanTaylorRIP
04-20-2009, 05:39 PM
You know I love Boldin but if the Cards want more than a 1st, 3rd, and the max a 2010 3rd I don't think we should move. Honestly the skins did it last year and while it isn't clear if it has worked yet, I wouldn't mind if the Ravens say take DHB or Nicks in the first round and trade up to the start of round 2 to grab Nicks. To trade up we would only have to give up our 3rd at max and possibly lees and end up with 2 quality WR"s for much less than we would have to trade to get Boldin. Again though Boldin is instant and guaranteed production vs. potential.

BmoreBlackByrdz
04-20-2009, 06:42 PM
True, but how long will he give us that "garunteed production" He plays like a mad bull and has a history of injuries. Plus he will be turning 29 midway through the season. I say the best offer we could give them is Heap, McGahee and a 2nd, but they'll turn it down. In the end, I say he re-signs with Arizona...

ChefMike
04-21-2009, 07:14 AM
No way he resigns he wants to be the #1 guy on a Team... of course he wants big $$$ but he really wants to "THE GUY" which we offer him plus the opportunity to win.

Heap and McGahee plus our 2nd and 3rd might make it happen... and I wouldn't be opposed to that...

Got to remember Arizona has an aging QB so taking on Veterans who can play is not a bad position for the Cardinals. They would instantly have a great Offensive lineup with Heap, McGahee, Fitzgerald, Warner and Hightower. Not a bad lineup.. to team with Breaston and Pope and Doucet. They would be adding a ton to the team. Plus with adding 2 1st round picks would also add a lot to the cap this year... something they might be against doing.

According to some sources. Arizona has lowered the asking price for Boldin from a 1st and a 3rd, to a 1st and a player. I see some good to this, but some bad as well. Right now, I just want us to stay put.

04-22-2009, 01:54 PM
I dont want to lose our 1st no matter what. But if we can get Boldin somehow w/o giving up my 1st then we end up w/ Rey OMG that would be awesome. There is no team in the NFL that will even think of running up the middle against us!!!!!

ccB
04-22-2009, 01:54 PM
I think Arizonas asking price will steadily drop, I mean, the Jets might be trading up to try and get a QB, the Giants are after Braylon, the Eagles only have 1 first round pick left. They are running out of options and the bridge might be burned beyond repair for them to try and keep him. It should be interesting to see what happens, I really think this will be a draft day trade and wouldn't be surprised to see a team come out of nowhere to land him.

a first and heap sounds likea great idea. Heap has had all his bonuses and stuff paid making him easier to trade cap wise and would take a chunk off our salary, but im still iffy about wether this would allow for the signing of suggs, gaither and ngata.

I like the 1st and Heap a lot. But I still would prefer drafting a young wideout. He'd sign for around 5 years, 8-9 million at most. I'd rather put big money on our own guys than a wideout who plays the way Anquan does going on 29.

What do yall think of Brian Robiskie? His stock is rising fast, maybe we could trade down to the top of the 2nd and take him there. He's a sure thing in my mind and could be a great dependable receiver for a long time.

I like him as a prospect, but IDK if he is the right fit for us.

half of me wants boldin.. his toughness and playmaking ability is enticing
the other half is wary of his attitude and the fact that heyward bey's ceiling is mouth watering and tempting

What if we just offered up our 2nd and 3rd staight up for Boldin?? Rather than one pick and a player? Or Heap, McGahee and a 3rd for Boldin?

Ok, let's Focus on tomorrow!
I don't think the Trade will happen. So let's pick our WR in the 1st Round!!

ha, agreed but if it does happen ill be pshyced.
ok who do you guys think will be the best value at our pick come the draft
I think there will be solid value at CBs and WRs and i hope either DHB or Vontae drop. If not imo i think Britt would be a great choice. And i would cream myself if we get Pettigrew
if we trade back i hope we go after Sean Smith, and pray for a reciever like Robiskie being there with our second

ESPN they just said the Cardinals have significantly lowered their asking price and are now willing to take just a 2nd rounder and other pieces. However the only teams involved in negotiations are the Jets, Giants, and Eagles. I'd be pissed if he went for cheap. If all we would have to give is the 26th pick, we'd be nuts not to give it.

If we could somehow get away with sending, Heap and a 2nd rounder for Boldin, use the 1st rounder on Pettigrew/Maualuga, I would need a new pair of pants.

Hell I have no problem giving a 2nd rounder, Heap, and next years 2nd. BTW if next year is truly uncapped I wouldn't have as much as a problem with giving up future picks this year. We could fill needs in Free agency.

Eagles might do 2nd and Sheldon Brown since he wants to be traded.

It doesn't matter how much they are asking for him, we simply can't afford Boldin right now w/ or w/o a new contract.

I've read that we can, can't remember where but someone broke down how it would be possible to.

We have 1.5 mil. remaining right now, the only way I would be able to see it happening is to trade Heap and cut somebody else. IDK if I see the FO giving up multiple players for a WR...

how about trading McGahee and Heap AND a 2nd rounder? Both guys have big contracts. If we get Boldin, trade Heap and McGahee, and still have our first, it'd be awesome. We could then actually take the BPa, which might be Chris Wells. I've always been a fan of his and he'd be amazing in our offense.

We can't cut or trade McGahee. It would cost us 11.25 mil. against the cap this year alone.

Plus even if the Cardinals wanted McGahee, the Ravens canít afford to part with him. No, that is not a typo. The Ravens cannot afford to trade Willie Mac. If they did the team would be hit with a staggering $11.25 million charge against their cap and if you havenít looked at the Ravens cap status lately, they have but a fraction of that available ($1.5 million).
