You mean another one. No way this happens but fun entertaining the idea of of signing a 36 year old WR. For that alone I commend him. Very impressive for a late 2nd round pick with an awful 40 time.

Re: Anquan Boldin has visit set up with a team in hopes of playing 15th*season

When does training camp start? This topic, usually with Boldin, seems to pop up every July. Frankly I've never understood the fascination.

Two quick points. First is the Saints already signed a veteran wide receiver. That would be one Ted Ginn.

Second last year should have proved that the need for a veteran wide receiver is completely unnecessary. Cooks, Snead, Thomas, and Coleman combined for over 2500 yards and 25 TDs last season without this seemingly needed veteran leadership that is called for each offseason.

I really don't understand...

No, SFIAH, you do understand. It is they who do not understand.

July 26th ... "Can't wait".

I'm good with the top 3 WR's & I agree that Ginn Jr. is gonna be just fine.

Washed up looks great until the wave hits.

So where would he line up? In the slot? Does that mean Snead shares time at wideout with Ginn Jr? I wonder where Coleman fits in this.

Ginn and Boldin are very different. Ginn is a speed threat and special teams weapon. Boldin is a physical possession receiver who is an accomplished blocker.

I'm not saying Boldin should play a major role but he would be a nice situational player. Our receiving corps could use a more physical presence, especially if we are serious about cranking up the running game with AP/MI. I'm not saying Boldin is Hines Ward, but indeed he is the closest thing out there in free agency.

Is it the end of the world if he doesn't sign? No. But he could help us get better in areas we need to get better at.

I feel there is exactly zero percent chance the Saints would consider bringing in Boldin. That said, just for the sack of conversation, who would the Saints jettison to add him to the roster? There are four current WR's that are pretty much locks for the roster ... Thomas, Snead, Ginn and Coleman. Some say Boldin would be able to help mentor the young WR's. Well, if he was added what young receivers would be left to be mentored? Another factor is that adding a player like Boldin you would lose TWO roster spots. The fifth WR (and probably the sixth if the Saints carry that many) would be expected to play special teams. Boldin isn't going to serve that role so therefore the Saints would have to find that special teamer at another position.

If our young receivers don't look good in TC and we are deficient--- why not? But before we even see what we have in the rookies and PS players......then NO!
