    Okay if we gave Boldin a 2 year deal with maybe an option for a 3rd year I would be all over that.

    -We have no idea what's going to happen with Britt and no one can predict how he will do on the field or what he will do off. He's probably gone at the end of his contract because someone will offer way more than they should.

    -Nate is around the same age as Boldin but on a lower production level. If we have the same guys and Nate declines a bit more our offense is going to again be in trouble.

    -Wright is a slot guy and we have no one after that.

    Boldin will come right in and start across from Britt and Washington will get plenty of playing time as well.

    I'd pass on him.

    Britt is our poor man Boldin, I'd much rather get a speed guy or someone to work down the field so we can open up the running game

    Fair enough. Moulds was released for a different reason.

    Back to my original point. Which I admit I have not explained well. I do not see the Titans being an attractive option for Boldin. In addition to what I have already mentioned there is an even bigger reason. His impact would not be a big with the Titans than with other teams. He is an upgrade at WR but not a huge one. On the list of areas holding the Titans back WR is pretty far down.

    All things being equal I think Boldin goes to a team where he will have a huge impact. A team where WR is one of the biggest needs like Miami or St. Louis. Even teams like Buffalo or Detroit who have a strong number 1 but little else. Even more attractive will be a strong team that needs some WR help like San Fransisco or Denver.

    I see your point and agree that he would have a greater impact on a more WR-needy team. I'd still like to have him.
