"The Arizona Cardinals are said to be gathering information on Tennessee Titans RBs LenDale White and Chris Henry, a source told Scout.com.
It’s not a secret that the Titans have interest in WR Anquan Boldin so Arizona’s potential interest in either back could signal that trade discussions could intensify over the next 24 hours."
Click here to listen to what ESPN has to say. I couldn’t get the video on here, so I figured the audio would be good enough.
"Arizona seriously was considering an offer Friday night for Boldin from Tennessee that included a second-round pick and a player-to-be-named, according to ESPN.com. Talks had progressed enough that the Titans reportedly received permission to negotiate with Boldin’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus." Chicago Tribune
"The Cardinals got an official offer today for wide out Anquan Boldin, but the Arizona Republic reports that the offer was not close to what the team was looking for. "It didn’t come close to being something we would consider," said GM Rod Graves. "We’ve had no other interest expressed." One team that suddenly seems to have great interest in Boldin are the Tennessee Titans, who also need a wide out. They grabbed free agent Nate Washington this offseason, but could use another prime-time player like Boldin, who right away would be the teams best wide receiver." NFL Gridiron Gab
USA Today pretty much says the same thing as everyone else
Same stuff again from Titans Radio
"In a recent report from Scout.Com, Arizona has looked into Titans running backs LenDale White and Chris Henry. White, who’s entering the final year of his rookie deal, or Henry could emerge as potential bargaining chips in the Boldin talks. Henry has spent his time on the sideline in his two seasons with the team."
"According to ESPN, the Titans have offered their second round pick (#62 overall) and a player to be named, most likely a running back, to the Arizona Cardinals in return for WR Anquan Boldin. The network added Tennessee has received permission to speak with Boldin's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, in efforts to work out a new contract."
and then, I know you don't wanna hear it, but there's this
"Arizona general manager Rod Graves does not expect to trade Boldin this offseason, according to the team's official site. This contradicts an ESPN report that the Cardinals have lowered their trade demands and that the Jets, Giants and Eagles have expressed renewed interest in trading for Boldin.Graves said, "The process is not over, but...the possibility of an extension seems more of a reality than a trade." He added that the probability of Boldin remaining with the Cardinals is "pretty high" and he said that he hasn't received any serious trade proposals for the wideout." Rotowire.com

A Ravens writer writes
"According to two sources, the liklihood of Anquan Boldin staying in Arizona is very high. In fact, it's more of a reality that he'll receive an extension rather than being traded."

"Beat writer Kent Somers disputes a Scout.com report that the Cardinals are gathering information on Titans RBs LenDale White and Chris Henry.
A team source told Somers that they have not been researching the Titans' backs. GM Rod Graves said earlier Friday that trade talks had been quiet despite pervasive reports to the contrary"

"I don't think he really wants to go," Fitzgerald said Friday. "He's been out there six years. His family is comfortable; his son is in school. There's a lot of things that I think will be conducive for him to stay.
"But this is a business. You never know what's going to happen."
Boldin seemed to soften his stance last week after previously requesting to be traded. This weekend's NFL draft is sure to be rife with rumors of potential deals for the wide receiver." SI

"Whether the Titans or anyone else pulls the trigger and trades for Boldin also remains to be seen. On Friday a report said the Cardinals had lowered their asking price to a second-round pick after initially asking for a first- and a third-rounder. The biggest concern for the Titans remains the money. Any team that acquired Boldin would also have to sign him to a new contract worth as much as $10 million per year." Tennessean
I'm going to keep updating this with all I can find.
