OK. Lets revisit the Welker deal. I was all for using a 2nd on Welker prior to the end of LAST season. Some people looked down their noses. Some agreed. Some guffawed when the Pats sent an additional 7th round pick to the Phins as well and then claimed that Welker wasn't worth the 6 year / $18 million contract he got. My question is this. How would you rate the EARLY returns on Welker? Please consider that he has 84 receptions, 896 yards and 7 TDs. Barring injury, should become just the 3rd player since 1999 and the 4th since 1996 to gain over 1000 yards in a season.
