    Welker is underpaid and it's a damn shame , IMHO. However, I have a problem including Gronk on that list. Last year he was a rooky for crying out loud. This is his second year in the league. I believe that they will give him a new deal eventually, but come on, let the dude earn it first. He had a break out year this year. If he performs like this next season, then yes, it's time to pay the man!

    Well, it's a true statement: relative to production, GRONK is vastly underpaid.

    That said, last year was his breakout year; this year vaulted him into "Could he become the best TE of all time?" conversations.

    It's certainly fair to say that he's been the best offensive player in that class, by some margin (scarily, the top three might be GRONK, Graham, and Hernandez. . . .).

    Gronk will be paid soon. BB wanting him to get the record tells me all I need to know. No way BB let Gronk go anywhere. Hernandez i am not sure. I am also not even sure of Welker being paid.

    Good points ct. I still think it's a little early to talk about money for Gronk, but the kid is worthy for sure.

    There isn't another Welker in the league, and it's pretty obvious Welker values winning over just chasing dollars.

    As I've said before, the cost of not resigning Welker (namely, that he'll go somewhere else) outweighs any possible benefit.

    Neither link is to ESPN, and, FWIW, they're from mid-November.
