According to various, unsubstantiated reports (notice this is in the rumor section), the Ravens have made an offer to the Arizona Cardinals for Anquan Boldin. According to John Clayton of ESPN, the offer is the Ravens first round pick and Todd Heap. Heap is a 29 year old tight end who has been a Pro Bowl level tight end when healthy in the past. The Cardinals will likely have to decide if Todd Heap is the player who caught 148 balls for 1,620 yards and 13 TDs between 2005 & 2006 or the guy who caught just 35 passes in 2008. He missed 10 games in 2007 but has played a full season in three of the past four seasons. Heap would immediately become the Cardinals starting tight end but it'll be up to the Cardinals front office to decide if Heap can be productive over the next three seasons. He's under contract until the end of the 2011 season but his cap charges might make the Cadinals think twice ($6.37, $6.67 and $7.37 million respectively). Those cap number might be another reason why the Raves are trying to move the tight end.
There hasn't been any official word from either the Cardianls or Ravens but this is a story that we'll update as soon as more is avaliable.
