Report: Cards reduce trade demands for Boldin

Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

The Arizona Cardinals have reduced their asking price for Pro Bowl wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a second-round pick and other considerations, according to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio.

Sal Pal's sources indicated that the Giants, Eagles and Jets have shown renewed interest in Boldin in light of the Cardinals' willingness to move off demands for a first- and third-round pick. The Cardinals had been wanting something similar to what the Lions received for Roy Williams, but no one has been as benevolent as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

The Jets are the most desperate team for a wide receiver, but the Giants appear to have more ammunition in the form of draft picks. As I've said before, Philly is the best fit for Boldin, but I think the Eagles are in third place now that they've acquired Jason Peters in a trade. Much more to come on this story as things develop.
