(From ESPN Insider) While some players explicitly stated it and others just hinted at it, the New York Giants certainly missed wide receiver Plaxico Burress during the final few weeks of the 2008 season and in their playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, they might find a solution by looking to Burress' offseason workout buddy.
Anquan Boldin had been upset with the Arizona Cardinals leadership since the team reneged on upgrading his contract before the 2008 season, and his well-publicized escapades during the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship game and afterwards certainly did nothing to endear him to the team or its fans. Boldin is due $2.75 and $3 million over the next two seasons, a figure the Giants could easily cover.
At 6'1", Boldin lacks the vertical size that Burress brings to the game at 6'5", but he is known around the league as one of the most physical wide receivers and earned quite a bit of respect by returning to game action just three weeks after suffering two facial fractures against the New York Jets.
In spite of the speculation as to his future in 2009 and beyond, Boldin was unwilling to comment on the rumors, saying, "Thinking about what somebody else needs and what somebody else wants doesn't help me at all. I'm here to win a Super Bowl and that's it."
I wonder if Anquan isn't the only WR option that would be a great fit for the Giants. I could easily see TJ "Who's Ya Mama?" Houshmandzadeh donning the red, white, and blue. Or, what about this...KEEP PLAXICO BURRESS??? There's no one that can guard #17 except for a gun holster. LMAO! Ok I'll stop...I kid, I kid.
WHAT SHOULD THE GIANTS DO? RESIGN #17, OR GO GET AN ANQUAN, TJ, CHAD, OR JUST DRAFT A TOP END RECEIVER?
