On the contrary, NFL Network is reporting that Wes Welker may take his talents to Peyton Manning to play for the Peyton Mannings.

As Polian pointed out on NFL Live, he would have much better outside receivers in Denver (Thomas and Decker) than he had in NE meaning more room to operate. Brady's gonna have no weapons outside of the 2 TEs. IMO, this still won't get the Donkeys over the top either cuz Peyton will find a way to suck in the playoffs, especially if they get HFA and it's like 2 above zero in Denver in January.




GO ZAGS!!

I wonder if Brady's pissed? He gives up incentives to save his team money, then Welker leaves, lol.

I feel like Amendola is going to sign within the next day. Him and Brady should be pretty scary together as long as he can stay healthy. That's pretty funny how they wouldn't match the 6 million over 2 year deal for their all star slot receiver.

He also has family in the Boston area so the move would make sense.

The writing was on the wall for this signing a long time ago, IMO. It just made WAY too much sense. Hell, it was so obvious even Jester called it a few weeks back! :)

Looks like multiple sources including the Broncos confirm this.

The Patriots have a longstanding solid history of not retaining players right at the point where their peak playing ability ends. Just sayin'. Wes Welker will be 32 in May.

Tom Brady would rather they kept him, it seems: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/03/13/report-tom-brady-enraged-patriots-let-wes-welker-go/

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.
