Dudes, we all love Wes, but are you really gonna pay him 5+ Mill per year?
Are you really gonna turn down a second rounder in order to pay him 5+ mill?
This is a no brainer!
Courage....is being scared to death, but saddling up anyway....John Wayne
Hey chicken little, the sky is not falling. Breath.....
This is very uncharacteristic of NE. He will fill a hole there but he isn't worth a second round pick to me. I'm surprised to see NE be this aggressive...almost too agressive and wasting value.
I hate the thought of losing Welker.
New England is not stupid! They've won 3 SB's with these kind of moves. They already have improved their defense and now they will likely have that ideal type reliable player who just makes clutch plays. They don't have the big stars, generally speaking (other than Brady, but even he does not put up spectacular stats), they just have a lot of playmakers.
They look for playmakers - not much else - and that's why they are SB champs and why the Dolphins have been realing the past several years.
Welker is a very good punt returner, average kick returner, and although undersized; he's a decent WR. I love Welker's heart and tenacity but I would love to have the Pat's second round pick as compensation.
The Pat's seem to be in the "win now" mode, they are being overly aggressive on this Welker deal and we should capitalize off it. Let them play checkers for once, while we play chess.

I say pay Welker the 5 mil. Miami hasn't done a single thing in FA worth talking about so far. I'm certain Miami could restructure a few contracts to pay Welker the 5 mil a year. Start with restructuring Chambers and McMichael. Then let Booker go.
Show me the playoffs. No excuses!
Welker plays his heart out every game, NE doesnt have a solid KR/PR so they need one, but if Miami wants success on this team, IMO its starts with Wes Welker
Nothing What R U Doing?
