Default Welker deal

5 years for $18.1 million with $10.5 million guarnateed. Pats gave up our 2nd and a 7th and word is Kraft stepped in to prevent a poison pill contract being used. That is the reason 7th round pick was added.

3.6 mill a year.

it's a contract clause that makes it very hard for a team (dolphins) to match a contract offer from another team.

if they used the poison pill they could add provisions like if he plays a certain amount of games, the contract would be guaranteed. also they could of added a ton of money and backloaded the contract so the dolphins would have a harder time matching the offer.

edit-just like the steve hutchinson situation last year, in the vikings offer they included that if he wasnt the highest paid offensive lineman then the contract becomes guaranteed.

That 7th round pick was worth it and then some, financially-speaking.
