Edwards to Giants is no Guarantee, Folks


Before everyone closes the book on Braylon Edwards' days in Cleveland, it must be remembered that Braylon is not the only target on the New York Giants' radar screen.
Do not forget about Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin. The Giants have to replace their former number one receiver, Plaxico Burress. The Cardinals are open to trading Boldin. Boldin is a better "catch" for the Giants than Edwards (no pun intended?). Boldin is 28 years old and clearly in his prime. He has caught 71 passes or more in his last four seasons. He is one of the best receivers in the NFL and likely worth a rich contract from the Giants' perspective. Boldin could be exactly what New York needs to get back to the Super Bowl. Further, the Giants would like nothing more than to spoil the hopes of their division rival Philadelphia Eagles to acquire Anquan. And the Giants have the draft picks to trade for Boldin; the Cardinals likely want at least a first round pick and a selection in the second or third round.
Edwards, on the other hand, had a bad season last year. Although he is two years younger than Boldin and likely cheaper, his price for the Giants may include Smith or Dixon plus two draft picks in the first three rounds, or his price may include another player from the Giants besides Smith or Dixon - someone like defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka. The Giants would be reluctant to give up two early draft picks or Kiwanuka for Braylon Edwards.
Food for thought: Boldin for Edwards? That is not in the "Cards". First, Boldin is worth more than Edwards, and the Browns are likely not prepared to give up the draft picks that would be required to make that deal. Second, although the Browns certainly need a premiere receiver like Boldin, it makes little sense for Arizona to acquire Edwards.
If Braylon Edwards' days are numbered in Cleveland, there is no guarantee that he will land in New York with the Giants.
Go Browns!
