Kansas City loses out on Boldin

ESPN’s Adam Schefter had reported that Kansas City was a leading contender to land Arizona receiver Anquan Boldin earlier Friday.

However, that possibility is over. Schefter is reporting that Arizona has traded Boldin to Baltimore.

Kansas City made sense as a potential new home for Boldin. He played for Kansas City coach Todd Haley in Arizona. Haley would have loved to get Boldin.

Boldin would have helped quarterback Matt Cassel. Combining Boldin with Dwayne Bowe and Chris Chambers (who needs to be re-signed) would have given Kansas City a solid receiving core.

Kansas City is trying to get better. It was reported Thursday Kansas City had a visit planned with San Diego running back/return star Darren Sproles when it was thought he’d be become an unrestricted free agent -- before San Diego gave Sproles the high tender.
