Patriots are trying to sign Welker, we would get a 2nd rounder in compensation. I love it. :)

i want to see the contract before i decide whether we should match or just take the 2nd rounder.

I don't even think we should look at it. I'd rather bring in Kelley Washington as the #4 guy and move Hagan to #3 or draft a WR in round 2.

yea thats prolly a good idea. the one thing i like about this is that chambers is SO MUCH BETTER when he plays in the slot but when welker was on the field, he almost always was in the slot. with the top three receivers being hagan, booker, and chambers, chambers can move back to the slot and potentially become the receiver we all know he can be.

for a 2nd I would let Vick try out KR/PR

but this will make the mockers start to give us Ginn jr even more.


More picks the better, btw we traded wilkinson too for 6th

this would be great. if we let welker and mcmichael go we'll have 5 picks on Day 1. It's finally nice to see Miami stock up on picks, rather than give them away like their nothing (Wanny and Spielman)

i wish we still had a 5th round pick...maybe we can get someone to take harrington for one...

The offer is 7 years 38 mil. This is what I heard on 790 The Ticket.

good for welker. i'm not sure he's worth over 5 mil a yr though. don't worry, when he plays us, he'll go for 3tds and 200 yds.

peter king said that we got a 2nd AND a 7th for welker. im guessing we threatened to match and NE sweetened the deal, albeit only a 7th rounder but hooray for more picks!!!

Old news, and it wasn't a trade.

It actually was a trade. We signed him to a 1 year deal and traded him to the Pats.

Yeah, I guess so I just saw it on ESPN.
