Arizona Cardinals Home: The official source of the latest Cardinals headlines, news, videos, photos, tickets, rosters and game day information

Hearing from the braintrust

GM Rod Graves and coach Ken Whisenhunt are scheduled for their annual pre-draft press conference today at 2 p.m., so we'll have that video up later and I will be writing a story. It's also the first time the two will have been in such a situation since the team acknowledged it was listening to trade offers for Anquan Boldin. I don't expect any earth-shattering news, but we will see.

Here is one thought coming out of this should Boldin not get dealt, a thought I was bouncing off someone yesterday and then brought up again from a fan who e-mailed me -- maybe this puts into focus Boldin's worth in terms of a contract. Maybe Boldin will see where he stands on the trade market and perhaps he and the team can come to a quicker meeting of the minds when it comes to a new contract. I don't know if that can or will happen, but we will see. If Boldin really wants a resolution to this, I would assume he will remain open-minded even if a trade doesn't happen. 

P.S. Speaking of the draft, part one of the video talking draft with myself, Paul Calvisi, Dave Pasch and Ron Wolfley is now posted.
