Truth & Rumors
Cards WR Boldin bound for New York?
If receiver Anquan Boldin hires Tom Condon as his new agent -- that's where Boldin reportedly is leaning -- might the Giants have an edge if Boldin is traded, considering Condon also represents Eli Manning? No one knows, but there's no harm in speculating. Boldin last week fired Drew Rosenhaus and soon will hire his fourth different agent since he was drafted in 2003. Boldin is not satisfied with his contract with the Cardinals -- he has $5.75 million owed him the next two years -- and through Rosenhaus has sought a mega-deal or a trade. There's been no progress, which is why Rosenhaus is gone and Condon could soon represent Boldin.(New York Post)
Barkley: I will gamble again
Charles Barkley says he is still not gambling but might again someday. The NBA Hall of Famer and TNT analyst also said he's still drinking, but not drinking and driving, since a DUI arrest on New Year's Eve. And Barkley can't wait to get to Lake Tahoe in July to show off his newly retooled golf game. Barkley said he has missed making bets during football season and likely would gamble again someday. If he does gamble, he might want to place a bet on himself to win the celebrity golf tournament July 17-19 at Edgewood-Tahoe Golf Course in Lake Tahoe. Harrah's race and sports book has him at a 499-1 underdog, though he won't pay off as much as he has in the past. Barkley was a 500-1 longshot to win the 2008 tournament and routinely finishes last. "You know what, I'm going down," Barkley said about the odds. Barkley said his golf game has improved under the tutelage of his pal Hank Haney, who is Tiger Woods' swing coach. (Associated Press)
Brady: Gisele isn't pregnant
Tom Brady faced his first blitz of the season today, and deftly ducked it. The Pats QB was at the center of a media scrum after practice, and managed to stay calm in the pocket. Though more comfortable talking about football than family, Brady did reveal that wife Gisele Bundchen is not pregnant, contrary to reports circulating on the Internet. "No. It's ... No," said Brady. "One is enough. I have dogs and that's all I need." (Boston Globe)
