WE NEED VETERAN LEADERSHIP AT THE WIDE RECEIVER POSITION!! Check out all the fourth quarter comebacks in Detroit last year. Boldin was the go-to guy, A big bodied vet who has been to the big dance could be got relatively cheap...your thoughts?

Why would he want to come here for cheap versus a contender for cheap?

Ugh...Mcaffrey. Perfect McCoy pupil.

I think he is a get-u-in-the-playoffs kinda guy. comes off the bench in the second half to make a difference. Top teams would have less use for him. Surprised the Lions didn't keep him around being not too injury prone

Been a fan of Boldin coming to Buffalo everytime he becomes available.

He's never been quick but he has always been able to get separation

They are so thin at WR right now that his lack of vertical ability.......the best throws Tyrod makes......is an afterthought.

 

They need a cheap, capable WR that won't look completely out of place as a go-to if Watkins and Holmes get hurt and it wouldn't hurt Watkins to have a strong, fellow So FL influence like Boldin around.

Dude is a tough, smart vet who catches the ball.   Still looks like he can play to me.

I think this post says it all about Mike Williams. Please say no to Mike Williams.

You want to draft a McCaffery at 10? Good player. I like him as a WR, but only if we trade back several picks

I agree with the many posters on this thread with positive reason we should sign Boldin.  We have the money.

You didn't pay attention to him last year. He's done.

He certainly seems like a player that would get a long with McDermott and wouodnt he have been in Baltimore with Tyrod? Maybe they missed by a year, not sure off the top of my head. But yeah, I would be all for it. I wanted him last year.

I have no feelings on him either way, but one thing I do know for sure is that Anquan Boldin is not the "missing link" keeping this team from being a playoff contender

I believe McDermott when he says we already have a #2 WR on this team and I also think this will be the year Sammy stays on the field for the whole season.

Howard is basically a WR. If you haven't seen his highlights it's worth the 4 minutes. As much as I wanted Corey Davis I can see Howard being as much of a force but a better blocker obviously.

Trade back, get Howard and a 2nd round pick, I'm happy.

yes, he and TT were both on the SB team.

I've been advocating for him for awhile but I think he will have options. He can still play. But he's exactly what we need from a vet WR, plus add a rookie. I don't think he would have come here last year because I heard he didn't like Roman. I think we have a better chance this year but not a great chance, depends what he's looking for. But he would be a great guy to have in the WR room and on the field.

If he'd come here, that'd be great. I can see him, along with Adrian Peterson, signing with a team like New England for dirt cheap in order to get a ring before it is time to call it quits, however.

bingo.   Bills are where careers go to die, or in the case of Boldin, to be finally buried.   Which is why he would not even answer the phone.   Next.

I can't see Boldin making a difference on this team in 2017. The Bills are not one player away from making a serious run at it and Boldin doesn't have the years left in his career to wait for them to get there. Unfortunately this is a move who's time was probably last year or before.

I love Boldin but at this time and with our chances at a SB this season, I'll take Cruz plus hes seven years younger.
