Guys, you know what ? This is not a totally impossible scenario. Boldin will be 33 next year, he did say he would like to play for more than a year, but we will never know how he will hold up physically. But, seriously even if he is in top physical condition come next year, you still need to plan ahead cos at most may be you can give him one more year or at most 2 ? As for Crab, Harvin got $11 mil, Wallace got $12 mil, my guess is Crab is probably looking at $10 mil minimum. How much will Baalke be willing to pay ? $8 mil ? I have a feeling we might be quite a bit apart.
So, here is the thing, is all about planning ahead, just like we should have planned ahead to take into account of injuries, you don't just wait until Boldin and/or Crab leave before you action. That is why I have been suggesting we should have drafted 2 WRs last year, but since they didn't do it we will need to do that next year, one high rounder and one middle rounder. Imagine the worst case scenario, Boldin leaves and Crab holds out, 2 more wideouts go down with injuries, then what ?
So, yes it will definitely be interesting to see what Baalke does in the next draft, but NOT wait until Bodin and/or Crab leaves cos by then it will be DEFCON 1 and way too late. LOL.
