NFL  > Arizona Cardinals  > Don't blame either side
May 1, 2009, 05:24 PM
I don't blame Boldin for sitting out of practice claiming to be injured, when everyone knows it's due to his dissatisfaction with his current contract. Yes, I know some of you will argue that he's under contract, but I don't think you can blame players for not honoring contracts, when owners don't have to. Boldin, who is one of the top WR's in the NFL will make less money than some 1st round rookies who have never played a down.

The Cardinals can't justify paying him his asking price, when they've already got mega money tied up in Fitzgerald's contract, that would mean that almost 20% of the teams salary cap budget would be tied up in the WR position.

The best solution for both will probably be to find a team needing a go to WR that's willing to give up two 1st round picks for a Pro Bowl WR. Baltimore, Miami, Tampa, Denver etc...
