Boldin and Leinart sit tight, Cards sign ex-Steeler CB

Everyone in Arizona (well, maybe not everyone…) is waiting to see whether Anquan Boldin will get his new contract, be traded, or be released.  Both Kurt Warner and Larry Fitzgerald wants him to stay a Cardinal, but Boldin’s agent is handling all of the contract crap. Boldin says he’s fine with that and enjoying the offseason.

As for Matt Leinart, he maintains that, despite Warner’s 2-year contract, he doesn’t want to be traded.  Again, we all have to wait and see what happens.  Leinart’s salary doesn’t appear to pose any salary cap problems, so, as always, time will tell.

The Cardinals signed ex-Steeler CB Bryant McFadden to a 2-yr, $10 million contract.  McFadden says he’s excited about being in Arizona, which he termed “an up-and-coming organization.”
