Boldin wants Cardinals to trade him

Posted: Updated:

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin is asking for a trade.

Boldin said he doesn't feel his situation with the team over a new contract can be resolved.

He also declared he has no relationship with coach Ken Whisenhunt.

A team spokesman said the Cardinals have no plans to trade the sixth-year standout and still hope to sign him to a contract extension.

As for Whisenhunt, the coach sounded puzzled when discussing reports today that Boldin had said he was no longer speaking to him.

Whisenhunt said they've been communicating.

The two-time Pro Bowl player blasted team officials as camp opened. Boldin claims the Cardinals reneged on an offer to re-negotiate his contract.

Boldin has three years left on the four-year, $22.75 million extension he signed after the 2005 season that keeps him under contract through 2010. He's making an average of $4 million a year.
