Well, the Anquan Boldin rumors just won’t stop. Both John Clayton and Peter King are confident Boldin will be dealt, with the Eagles a likely destination. Now, the fellas at PFT are claiming the Cardinals are shopping him for sure. Please take what they say with a HUGE grain of salt. Their so-called “sources” are about as reliable as investing in the stock market.
More from PFT. Connecticut running back Donald Brown has apparently scheduled a private workout with the Birds. Brown is 5’10”, 210 lbs and rushed for over 2000 yards in ’08. He has good vision, decent speed and is ranked in the Top 5 among RB prospects. Only caught 48 passes in three seasons.
Lastly, Darrius Hayward-Bey will workout for the Eagles as well. Heyward-Bey ran a 4.30 40-yard dash at the Combine and recently shined at his Pro Day. More-so than Brown, I find this very intriguing. Heyward-Bey will likely not last beyond the 1st round. I would be surprised if the Birds used one of their 1st round picks on a receiver, but that’s not to say I wouldn’t be pleased if they did. Heyward-Bey has the size (6’2″, 210) and speed to be a legit NFL target and certainly would give the Eagles a bigger target opposite DeSean Jackson.
Would Reid and Co. shock the world and draft a running back and a wide receiver in the 1st round??? I’ll believe it when I see it, and even then I probably won’t.
