Who will be the Giants' No. 1 WR in '09?

ESPN.com's John Clayton takes time out of his busy schedule each week to answer dozens of e-mails from adoring readers and stalkers. In wading through The Professor's Mailbag today, I ran across an interesting theory on what the Giants will do to replace vanquished wide receiver Plaxico Burress.

Q: I'm a Giants fan and I'm kind of worried at their WR situation without Plaxico Burress. Who do you see in a Big Blue uniform -- Chad Ocho Cinco, Anquan Boldin or Braylon Edwards?

The Prof: I would put them in this order: Edwards, Ocho Cinco and Boldin. I think Edwards can be had for a first- and third-round pick. It's debatable whether the Bengals will trade Ocho Cinco, but he might have the lowest price. I think Cardinals' ownership will block a Boldin move even though I think it's time to consider trading him. He's at maximum value and he's not ever going to make as much as Larry Fitzgerald as long as he's in Arizona.
