If Welker were healthy, would Edelman still be a Patriot?
This comment, from a Pats fan, was posted on another board.
Now that I think about it, I believe that if Welker doesn't get injured in week 17, then you see a trade involving Julian Edelman at the conclusion of the season (I think a 3rd rounder would have been a reasonable expectation from some team hoping to emulate our style). There's really no need for 2 slot WR's in this offense and their skillset is so similar. Maybe you even see it this season, but we are probably going to need him for insurance.

Re: If Welker were healthy, would Edelman still be a Patriot?
Whose to say he's a slot receiver? He was no receiver starting the season, he's a very smart athletic guy who picked up a position like nothing where experienced vets have failed. Guys like that usually just get better.
Troy Brown was just a special teams player, then just a third down receiver. When we needed a starter, he stepped in and caught 100 balls.
