What Price Is To High?:

From Tom Rock of Newsday:

The Cardinals have reportedly lowered their asking price for Anquan Boldin to a second-rounder and a player. That should make the Giants interested, right?

Well, according to a person familiar with the situation, it’s not so much the trade price that is holding the Giants back from making a deal for Boldin (or Braylon Edwards for that matter) but the price each of those players is looking for in his next contract. Both are said to be looking for $10 million-per-year deals similar to Larry Fitzgerald’s. That’s pretty steep cash.

The source called the trading price “irrelevant.” It appears that the money cost of signing the players is what is holding other teams back from making the deal as well.

So even if the price is right on the trades, the secondary price of signing the players probably won’t go down anytime soon. Until it does, they’ll probably be stuck with their teams.

Maybe the Giants are just not interested in paying either of them that much money.
