(not a cap expert, could be wrong) is that they're just riding high on earlier glory to make a shit-ton of money while saving $ on the present squad. I certainly have no business telling Belicheck how to run a team, guy has gotten to the SB 5 times. But why does it seem like almost every time a guy other than Brady goes for full market value he goes somewhere else?
At least your not the only one
Also welker is like 31 or something right? That mean BB will get rid of him soon as BB will see he has no longer need of his tool.
