Yeah, I was about to post that. Brady's pissed, and I don't blame him, haha.

Two years 12 mil. ... wow! That's it?? What the hell did Tom Brady agree to lower his deserved salary if they couldn't even pay 6 mil a year for 120 catches? I'm stunned

Anyone think NE probably was going to match but Welker just told them 'eff you?' seems like there was a lot of bad blood and unhappiness on Welkers part towards NE.

No way I can imagine NE wouldn't have given him the same deal

Story I heard was Welker didn't give NE the option to match. I guess when they didn't reach an agreement during the 3 day period NE called up Amendola and Welker pretty much decided to move on.

Yeah, Welker seemed royally pissed during the whole process. I don't think him going to a big AFC competitor and Brady's rival Manning is a coincidence.

Especially for a pretty cheap deal.

Some more info I agree with from an article by Mike Freeman on the "breakup" with the Pats and Welker.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/mike- ... wes-welker

So, if you have over 2 years to get something done and don't, don't get mad at the player you could of easily signed if you were serious about it.

Welker playing for Denver is a pretty good spot for him I think as well as most in this thread.
