08:06 AM ET 04.25 | The Cardinals' decision to listen to trade offers for Anquan Boldin has produced far more rumors than serious inquiries, and it appears the Pro Bowl receiver will remain with the team beyond this draft weekend. It takes only one phone call to change that, of course, but the Cardinals aren't expecting it to come. The first serious offer came Thursday, and the Cardinals quickly rejected it. ESPN reported Friday the Cardinals had reduced their trade demands to a second-round pick and "other considerations." ESPN has previously reported the Cardinals were asking for first- and third-round picks. Graves emphatically denied the Cardinals had placed an asking price for Boldin. "None of that is true," Graves said. "We've never said what we were looking for. All we've said is that we're willing to listen and certainly would consider something of commensurate value." While the Cardinals haven't specified a demand, they likely would reject an offer that didn't include a first-round pick, according to two sources. Over the past week, the Giants, Eagles, Ravens and Titans were reported to have at least cursory interest in Boldin, who has made three Pro Bowls in six seasons. It's unclear, however, how serious any of them are about acquiring Boldin. It's quiet out there, but as they say in Westerns, maybe it's too quiet.
