Wes Welker to New England?
 
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2786731

Wow.

remix 6 03-03-2007 01:33 PM

we also signed Sammy Morris

draftguru151 03-03-2007 01:35 PM

Wow. I love it. I'll take a 2nd rounder any day for Welker.

The Legend 03-03-2007 01:35 PM

Broncos and Patriots are just on fire

Geo 03-03-2007 01:35 PM

Welker is underrated, but a 2nd round pick isn't cheap. Might work out for both sides.

The Pats signed Sammy Morris? Shoot, I was hoping the Colts would give him a look.

IndyColtScout 03-03-2007 01:35 PM

I don't get giving up a 2nd rounder for Wes Welker. He is a guy who is a fit w/ the Pats & can improve, but a 2nd rounder?

Flyboy 03-03-2007 01:35 PM

Wes Welker is so underrated. TTU alumi representin'.

I would too.

i agree 2nd might be too much but i trust any decision right now

BehrenMan007 03-03-2007 01:41 PM

ill take a 2 for wes

draftguru151 03-03-2007 01:41 PM

I'm sad to see Morris go though. I really hope Ricky gets back into the league or we bring in Chris Brown or someone. He was a very good all around player.

Wes Welker is a beast and an incredibly hard worker who's motor never stops. Good deal for both teams.

Number 10 03-03-2007 01:46 PM

Helps and hurts both teams....

Patriots get a guy that seems to be progressing as a WR very well and with Brady throwing the ball instead of Harrington/Lemon/Culpepper....we could see how good he really he is. But is he worth a 2nd rounder?

Dolphins gain a 2nd round pick which should enable them to have a solid day one or even trade up a few spots if Branch is available and still have 3 day one picks. But losing guys like Welker don't seem like a big deal in March, but during the season when you need jack of all trades player is when it can hurt. That is why I am glad the Giants locked up Tyree for 5 years.



This just strengthens my point that the teams that know how to draft.....know that this class is weak.

Grizzlegom 03-03-2007 01:46 PM

wow...2nd round pick for welker...thats a win-win situation. we match we keep a great player, we dont, we get a 2nd rounder.

nyjets5125 03-03-2007 01:57 PM

yeah its probably a little too high for welker, but the pats have 2 first round picks so they can afford it

you guys still think theyll draft a WR in round 1?

Chucky 03-03-2007 02:11 PM

bad move by the pats

na we need a WR and its obvious that Patriots are comforatble giving up a late 2nd for a WR who has talent and can PR. im not a big fan of this either but it sort of makes sense..i would have seen Stallworth here :(

Chucky 03-03-2007 02:18 PM

you can get a better reciever with a 2nd rounder than wes welker.They would be better of signing a FA or packaging that second rounder along with one of their firsts to get a top Wr in this draft

XxXdragonXxX 03-03-2007 02:26 PM

To me it's kind of surprising that they would go for Welker and not D.J. Hackett who also would cost a 2nd round pick.

Maybe they value Welker higher because of his return capabilities.

briz5x 03-03-2007 02:33 PM

well the pats lost Deion Branch last year, and got a 1st round pick for him. Now they replace him with Wes Welker for a 2nd round pick, Branch was a second round pick. Somehow it seems the pats always come out on top.

Staubach12 03-03-2007 02:43 PM

Wes will be huge in New England. Great signing.

P-L 03-03-2007 03:10 PM

I think a 2nd Round pick is a bit much, but I really don't think it is any worse than the Colts giving up a 2nd Round pick for "Booger" McFarland.

princefielder28 03-03-2007 03:11 PM

If i were Miami I would take the compensation

Except Booger had "pro bowl & super bowl" on his resume.

And his name is Booger.

Yeah, Wes hasn't proven as much as MacFarland so it may be a stretch for NE
