The Patriots are the frontrunner to acquire Arizona Cardinals receiver Anquan Boldin in a trade, according to a Twitter post from reporter Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times and National Football Post.
That information has not been confirmed by ESPNBoston.com.
Wilson later posted that the Patriots have pulled out of the trade discussions.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, on the television set of "NFL Live", said today that he believes the Baltimore Ravens are the leading contender. The Patriots are apparently in the discussions along with the Kansas City Chiefs.
