A rookie who hasn't taken a single snap. Two undrafted free agents that contributed out of necessity. A promising 3rd year player, albeit of small stature, that's just starting to come into his own. Nope, can't see where a reliable, sure-handed possession receiver who's not scared to go over the middle and has made a living out of moving the chains fits in there. Wouldn't want to give a rookie who plays a similar game an accomplished veteran that knows what it takes to succeed in the NFL. Wouldn't want to stunt the growth of the 6'6 cocktease that runs like a deer and has been disappointing since college like the hot girl that gives teethy blowjobs. He's definitely the reason you should pass on bringing the consummate professional - that has continued to produce with the likes of Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert throwing to him - aboard your young, impressionable team. Not like he's a healthier, more productive version of the player you just let go after a decade of success or something. The guy that has damn near a familial bond with the Saints receivers coach that brings his name up in meetings so much that it turned into an inside joke between the players? Nah, Anquan Boldin can be nothing but detrimental to a locker room that has proven to be oh so functional over the last few years. Especially at the hefty price tag of the veteran's minimum.
Psssst, don't tell this to the "sky is falling" Saints fans online, but there is literally nothing to dislike about this news. I honestly didn't even know it was possible to be disappointed about potentially adding an established veteran presence with a handful of Pro Bowl appearances under his belt to a receiving core that boasts an "impressive" 4 years of COLLECTIVE experience, but hey, that's the internet for ya. They'll hate anything, especially if it ruins their glorified view of a position group that couldn't be less proven. Anquan Boldin not only gives the Saints the most stable of insurance packages for when the injuries inevitably bite, but he immediately makes every player on the depth chart better just by being there. Pretty sure Mark Ingram agrees with me too...
Make it happen Loomis.
