    This is mostly for the people that are not happy with the Welker offer. What would you say if the deal was:

    P.S. I got this from another forum but since we have no numbers right now I thought it would be a good discussion.

    Why waste the brain cells? I'll wait till it's offically stated.

    The numbers would make more sense for Welker if true. 3M a year goes down a bit easier.

    As far as the poison pill, initially I was against it, but another poster pointed out to me that the league has screwed the Pats over the last 2 playoff seasons with crappy calls, and he was right! So now, I'm all for it. What is the league going to do, send us to China and have us play the Colts after their bye week...?

    Still don't like loosing the 2nd, but that has been discussed all day yesterday in a couple of threads.

    Am I that poster?lol

    I agree on the Pats getting shafted, this is a competitive business, if there is an edge you can take to be better than everyone else you need to do it. merriman got away with roids.

    The offer must be something in that territory, although I'd be willing to bet that it's less than 3 million a year. There's no way the "real" contract is in the 30+ million range as reported.

    Ghost, this is the most likely scenerio. Welker at 3-3.5MM/year is about what this deal with work out to over the first 4 years in actual money and cap consequence, IMO. Its probably about $500,000 too high/year, but about right in the inflated current market.

    Pat's have been on the receiving end of poison pill contracts (Curtis Martin), good to see they are prescribing the medication and not taking it now.

    Sometimes the only way to beat a dirty fighter is to fight dirty.
