    Difference is Randy wasn't playing well, Larry is. He's still only 29 I'm sure somebody with give up a definite 1st and more like a 2nd or 3rd at least. Mallett hasn't really shown anything, hard to see a big trade based around him.

    What is fitzgerald's contract? If he's expensive enough then he's not worth it.

    No Jersey Selected

    From that list, I would persue Jennings, Wallace, Ogletree & Hartline. Priority #1 is, of course,
    to re-sign Welker. Re-signing Edelman shouldn't be too difficult; he is more valuable to us than he is
    to any other team.
    There's also a 2011 4th-rounder, currently on Philly's roster, about whom I would inquire.
    Maybe McD has an opinion on him...

    According to Rotoworld, the relationship between Percy Harvin and Leslie Frazier has rapidly deteriorated. They are reporting it is possible a 2nd or a 3rd round pick for Percy Harvin may be enough (according to someone working in NFL personnel) to pry him away from the Vikings. Where do we sign up?

    Getting rid of Welker and then signing someone like Wallace would be completely and utterly moronic.

    I'd rather keep the offense we have now and aim to improve our secondary with salary cap space.

    We run a 3 WR set 40% or so of the time. Your suggestion is

    Lloyd
    mid-level free agent
    Edelman
    rookie
    Slater

    That's simply not reasonable; and yes it is horrible. As we know by now, the rookie will likely be inactive for almost the entire season. It takes that long to learn the system and get Brady's confidence.

    We have Welker and Branch now. Presuming that the mid-level free agent would be able to replace Branch, we are left with replacing Welker with Edelman. I'm not buying.

    Personally one of the things i think needs to be looked at is would you rather Welker in your 2wr 2 TE offense or Greg Jennings?

    Can you do more with Welker in the 2wr 2te or Jennings?

    When thinking about it there is no question Wes is Elite and the best slot receiver in the game and still very good.

    but would having Lloyd and Jennings outside with Hernandez and GRONK inside be better for this team? and make us tougher to defend?

    Because that is the type of money Welker is after. Personally i think Welker is great and one of my favorite players on this team, plays his heart out and deserves a ring. But i am not sure it wouldn't be better for this team to have Lloyd and Jennings/Wallace on the outside with Gronk on the inside with Hern... Edelman as well.

    Look i am not sure i have the answer to that but looking objectively i can see the thought process of having a guy like Jennings at that spot and making this offense really be about runing the ball, PA pass, TE's and guys who can then beat that 1 on 1 coverage on the outside. This to me is what will lengthen Brady's career and keep us on top.
