Disgruntled Boldin to fire super-agent Rosenhaus

Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin is in the process of firing his agent Drew Rosenhaus.
Boldin, in a long contract dispute with the team, informed the NFL Players Association in a letter that he wanted to replace the agent. The players association says it received the letter on Friday, so with the required five-day waiting period, Boldin can sign with a new agent on Thursday.
Boldin is expected to sign with Creative Arts Agency (CAA), a source told FOXSports.com's Alex Marvez.
Rosenhaus issued a statement saying he has great respect for Boldin and hopes that the player returns to "the Rosenhaus Sports family" soon.
Boldin has been looking for a trade out of Arizona for a full year now. He first asked to be traded last offseason when the Cardinals refused to give him a contract extension. After the team failed to move him, Boldin caught 89 passes for 1,038 yards and 11 touchdowns in the 2008 season, earning him his third Pro Bowl selection.
Boldin has renewed his request for a trade this offseason, and last month Cardinals head coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed that teams had been contacting Arizona about Boldin's availability
