Why do they go after Welker with a 2nd and a 7th when they could get a better WR, like Randy Moss or someone. . .

I think he knows exactly what it means, which is why he is saying he won't see 20 million of it max. And this is confirmed:

Quote:
Patriots acquired Wes Welker for second and seventh-round draft picks in the 2007 draft. A long term deal has been agreed to, but is undisclosed.

The $39 million figure that was floated for Welker's proposed offer sheet probably included a lot of phony money and years. Since the two teams dealt directly, it won't be necessary to pay Welker so much or so creatively. Welker provides the Patriots a versatile receiver who stands a good chance at starting. He'll also return punts. Don't be surprised if Welker's solid 2006 numbers improve.
Don't get me wrong, I hate the deal, but at least he's a lot cheaper...

You realize the seventh round pick is IN ADDITION to the previously offered second round pick, right?

This suits the Pats better IMO. They will now most likely offer Welker less per year, and trade down from the #28 pick into the second round and pick up a 7th as compensation. In this scenario, all we'll have done is spent a 2nd on a good all round contributer, who may well have a big year for us.

I still hate giving up a second round pick for Wes Welker... but I like it more knowing we can do it on our terms...

I would hate for my team to give up a 2nd round pick on a player....You never know who can fall to the mid/late 2nd round...A player like Wes Welker could seemingly be drafted in the 3rd-4th round....But im sure Belichek and company have better insight than me....and he is much more qualified

I'm probably the biggest Wes Welker fan on the forums (being that I attend TTU and everything), but... a 2nd rounder AND a 7th? Wow. All I'll say is do your damn thing, Wes.

You guys. Seriously. It's one of the last picks in the draft. It's basically the same as being an UDFA, it means absolutely nothing. Most of those guys don't even make the roster anyway. It was just a formality.

I think this was an intriguing move by the Pats. Not up, nor down as of now, but they do get a guy who could fit very well within the scheme and be a solid contributor. A late 2nd isn't anything to laugh about, and the Fins got a good deal with the 2nd/7th combo.

The Deal is:

5 years
$18.1 mill
$10.75 guranteed.

NFL Network. Thats much better than the 7 yr 38.5 that was probably there for signing sheet

The contract isn't too bad, but giving up a second rounder for Wes Welker? That is an awful deal. 7th rounder doesn't matter very much but damn Wes is not worth a second round pick.
