The Bears attempted to trade a second-round draft pick for Anquan Boldin last year. Might they be tempted to send a third rounder to the Cardinals this year, even if it means they wouldn't have a pick in the first three rounds of the draft?
The Miami Herald is reporting that the Dolphins may offer a third-round pick for the Cardinals' receiver. The Dolphins own the ninth pick in the third round while the Bears have the 11th.
The Cardinals were shopping Boldin last spring. They reportedly sought first- and third-round picks. Bears general manager Jerry Angelo offered the No. 49 pick on draft day knowing that the Bears would have to offer Boldin a lucrative contract extension. Arizona officials didn't bite.
Last month, Boldin told the Cardinals that he will not request a trade. However, with Kurt Warner retired and the emergence of Steve Breaston in the shadow of Larry Fitzgerald, the timing might be right for the Cardinals to make a deal.
