I can't believe how cheap Wes Welker went for.. I thought he'd be going for 8-9 million a year but here the Pats value him at 5mil a year.. and signs with Denver for 6mil.

Wes Welker had nearly 1,400 yards last year.. Wallace had 800 yards and signed for twice as much yearly. Not to mention Amendola got paid more than him which is


Edit: Why didn't the niners go after him? Welker > Boldin

Why would the Pats be willing to give 6 million a year over 5 years for Amendola, but only offer 2 years/10 million with incentives for Welker?

That seems retarded.

only a 10 million dollar gurantee for a talented player like Amendola isnt bad and he's only about 26 or 27.

The point, which should be obvious, is that quality players are being lost. You want to talk offense? How was Moss replaced? The only elite players other than Brady are the TEs.

The Pats are just a team that is willing to sacrifice wins for another million. Really, they don't deserve to win another SB. And making these kinds of decisions, they won't.

I can't be the only one to agree with PT that Amendola's better than Welker right now right? It's close, but given their ages and current ability it's an easy Amendola sign for me.

the pats are in win now mode. Amendola hasn't had 1 year where he's even close to as good as welker. The injury prone tag is another thing of concern, and the great chemistry welker and tom brady goes out the window now.

I'm sorry but the Pats has been a dynasty the past 12 years or so. The FO makes pretty good decisions. Too old ya gotta go and if you want more money than the team is willing to spend ya gotta go. The offense has always made adjustments to stay elite the defense no but still the only team that competes for a SB run every year I would take it.

Also Amendola is about 26 or 27 and only has a 10 mill guaranteed contract. Not bad.

The Broncos have signed CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to a 1 Year/5 Million Dollar Contract

Really surprised he didn't get a multi-year deal.

And what are you basing that on exactly?

Welker came off a season where he almost put up 1,400 yards.. Danny Amendola is a good WR, when healthy, but he's never shown he can be healthy. Not even considering his injury issues he's still a huge question mark. He's never averaged more than 800 yards and to think he can replace Welker's production is absurd. Again how is Amendola as good as Welker? You guys are criminally underating Welker..

Everyone thinks Welker is easily replaceable because he's a slot player and a product of the "system" but it's going to be damn hard to replace 100+ catches and 1300+ yards.

Danny Amendola also doesn't come off as a tough player the way Welker does. Welker ran crisp routes, found pockets of space and wasn't afraid getting bucked by a linebacker over the middle. It's crazy to think how durable Welker was given his style of play.

It's one thing if Amendola gets paid a few million less than Welker to address other areas but he's getting paid more! Lets be real Kraft was trying scam Welker out of a few million, Welker gets pissed and leaves and then New England panics and signs Amendola..

It's not a bad contract but they've could have resigned Welker for cheaper! I'm fairly positive they were expecting to sign Welker for the cheap due to the "loyalty" factor but that obviously backfired.

It's not easy replacing 1300+ yards..
