Talks were numerous over the off-season, but Anquan Boldin, the disgruntled Arizona Cardinal wide receiver, has been traded to the Eagles for the 21st pick in this year's draft and an additional 3rd round pick.Let me just say it one more time, ANQUAN BOLDIN IS AN EAGLE!!!!!!!!!!! The Eagles have made numerous questionnable moves this offseason but this is by a mile one of the best moves they have made in recent memory. McNabb wanted a playmaker and he has one now. And with the albeit now somewhat faded prospect of the Eagles drafting Anquan's brother, D.J. Boldin in the draft, the possibilites are endless if they do. What was always considered a weakness of the Eagles has just become a major strength for them.
Boldin, in his 6 seasons as a Cardinal, has a total of 502 receptions for 6,496 yards and a total of 40 touchdowns.
"I am really excited to be an Eagle", said Boldin this morning. "I look forward to working with Coach Reid and the Eagles organization and I hope that I can help bring a Super Bowl trophy to this city."
