Teams inquire about Cardinals' Boldin

Posted: Updated:

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- The Arizona Cardinals have received inquiries from "quite a few teams" about disgruntled wide receiver Anquan Boldin, and more conversations are anticipated as draft day approaches.

But general manager Rod Graves and coach Ken Whisenhunt repeatedly emphasized at the team's pre-draft news conference Tuesday that they would be happy to keep Boldin and eventually try to sign him to a new contract.

Boldin may himself be softening in wanting to leave Arizona. Last week at a charity event, Boldin appeared open to staying with the Cardinals.

Boldin has two years remaining on a four-year, $22.25 million contract. He earned $4 million last season.

Teammate Larry Fitzgerald is in the second season of a four-year, $40 million deal, with $30 million guaranteed.
