The Kansas City Chiefs have yet to make a single move since free agency got underway, but Adam Schefter is reporting they are a possible trade partner with the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona is closing in on a long-anticpated deal to trade Pro Bowl wide receiver Anquan Boldin. Leading contender: Baltimore. KC also in.
Meanwhile, the NFP believes the New England Patriots are the favorites to land Boldin.
The Baltimore Ravens have been heavily pursuing Boldin, but the Patriots lead for Boldin’s services at this point.
Nothing is done right now, but the Patriots are regarded as the leader in the Boldin sweepstakes.
The Ravens and Patriots and other unknown teams are jockeying for position in trade discussions with Cardinals general manager Rod Graves.
This one would hurt to be on the wrong side of if you’re the Chiefs. Not only because the receivers were such a problem last year, but it looks like virtually every big name will be spoken for without any even seriously considering Kansas City.
I’m not trying to suggest that big names are going to win games, but the Chiefs roster is in dire need of a big time addition and Boldin would be that and more. He knows what is expected of him when playing for Todd Haley and his presence would alleviate a lot of the pressure that is on Dwayne Bowe.
