Biggs: Offseason is here, time to start Boldin speculation

The offseason is upon us. What better way to start it than with some Anquan Boldin speculation?

You figure Boldin really ought to want out of Arizona now that Kurt Warner has retired. Then, of course, there is the matter of that pesky contract that has bothered him since about the day he signed it. Or maybe it just seems like it’s been that long.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald suggests that the Miami Dolphins could be interested in acquiring Boldin, who will finally be going into the final year of his contract. Jackson writes that the Dolphins could offer a draft pick – third round or later – for the services of Boldin.

Certainly the development of Steve Breaston this season as a legitimate No. 2 option across from Larry Fitzgerald (just wait and see what his brother has to say about Matt Leinart throwing to him) would make it easier for the Cardinals to make the move. Boldin continued to be nagged by injuries again this season, too. No one will ever question his toughness, but don’t confuse toughness and durability. Statistically, Boldin, 29, had a better season averaging 12.2 yards per catch.

The Chicago Bears offered a second-round draft pick for Boldin on draft weekend last April and the Cardinals did not engage them in discussions. Stay tuned.
