Playing under Brady has got Welker's head swollen, but the pats can send him on to the Jets or back to MIA where he will be nothing the rest of his career. He's getting old and wants money he's not even worth, IMO. Hogan is 24 years old and Hogan is... well.... always open.
I'm just sayin. The Pats were working out Plax and I thought that was funnier than my comments. So why not pick up Hogan and possibly Johnson again, for less than $6 mill this time? Johnson looking for a distraction from the allegations may have him extra motivated to fall in line and Hogan...
is always open.
Let me make sure I understand.
Wes Welker since joining the Patriots has caught more passes than any WR ever has in the same # of years.
In 2011 Wes Welker had the 19th highest receiving yardage total in NFL history.
Of active players only Calvin Johnson (once) and Andre Johnson (once, plus tied a 2nd season) have ever had a season with more yards.
Jerry Rice had 2 seasons with more yards than Welker had last season and one of them was only by 1 yard. Yes you read that right. Jerry Rices 2nd best season of his career as the GOAT WR had 1 more yard than Welker did last year.
No other WR in NFL history had a second best season better than Welker had last year, and only 17 that ever played had more in their career year.
And you want to cut him if you can sign a guy not good enough to make the Dolphins roster, because he looked good on Hard Knocks?
Honestly, you should reconsider posting if this is the thought process you will bring, because this board will eat you alive.
