He's been on so many different teams, you have to wonder what the issue is, because his on field playing ability has always been pretty good, and can't be the reasons why he's been on so many different teams. If he was a really good locker room guy, he'd had likely only seen 3 teams at the max. I don't know anything about this guy as a person so I wont throw out accusations, but there have been rumors he is a bit of an odd one.
Kinda like Bernard Pollard I guess. Good player but not so good that anybody go to any lengths to keep him around.
I don't know any specifics (other than I cannot find a fan of a team that he was on that actually liked him other than Broncos fans), but I know that is a big enough red flag that I want no part of him.
Some FA WRs:
Laurent Robinson (concussions)
Titus Young (insane)
Laurent Robinson was kicking ass with Tony Romo the year before last. I wouldn't be opposed to giving him a shot.
As for Titus...it seems now the Ravens really don't care how much talent a guy has if he is a knucklehead...(except for McClain who somehow gets a pass...at least for now).
I'm still kinda pissed they didn't sign Da'Rick Rogers as a UDFA. They took a similar chance with Jimmy Smith, and Smith was riskier because he was a 1st rd. pick. Signing Rogers as a UDFA for peanuts is a no-brainer to me.
I guess with all of the veterans that left they don't want to bring in anyone that might rock the boat.
Laurent Robinson has a ton of talent but is always hurt. As a #3/#4 receiver, he can certainly be effective like he was in Dallas. Jacksonville tried to use him as a starter and he just isnt.

I doubt they'll trade for a WR.
They seem to be committed to a team-wide youth movement.
I also doubt it's a coincidence that they signed 2 UDFA WRs: Gerard Sheppard & Omarius Hines, who are physically comparable in size to Boldin, only faster.
