What they're saying: Eagles in position to land Boldin

What they're saying: Eagles in position to land Boldin


Time for an offseason edition of "What they're saying."

This is where we scour the Web for Eagles links and bring them directly to you. 

We'll start with a brief post tonight, and many more links on Wednesday.

And remember, for the best local coverage from The Inquirer and Daily News, check out's Eagles section.

Without further ado...

On SportsCenter (or maybe ESPNews) tonight, John Clayton was asked about the Eagles, and more specifically Donovan McNabb. Clayton talked about the Eagles now having12 picks in this year's draft and a lot of cap room. He speculated that they are in position to do something big, mentioning specifically Anquan Boldin and recently release Rams tackle Orlando Pace.

Peter King of Sports Illustrated seems to share Clayton's opinion.

In his reader mailbag today, King said he does not expect Boldin to be back with the Cardinals. And guess which two teams he mentioned as possible new homes for the talented wide receiver:

The Eagles and Giants, two receiver-needy teams, are in position to deal for Anquan Boldin, who I continue to say will not be a Cardinal by July. Philly has 21, 28 and 53, the Giants 29, 45 and 60. I find it hard to believe the Eagles won't trade for Boldin. Very hard. He's a perfect fit, and they've got the cap room to sign him.

I'm not saying it's going to happen. Just thought I'd pass along the links.
