         The Pats won't, nor should they, pay him that kind of money. Especially the $20 million guaranteed is far too much.

         If the Pats keep him, this will be his last season as a Patriot.

    I hate to rain on everyones parade that thinks Welker will get a 4/32 contract from Patriots. The biggest contract you will see is 3/22 with 18 guaranteed. That means he is on the books for the first two years of the deal at about 6 million each.

    It also means that he is going to either have to play under his franchise tag or be traded. I think he wants more then that or it would be done already.

    Amendola is a player the Pats might go for but the slot is full of potential because with the addition of TE Fells and Hernandez and Gonzales and Edelman you have a full stable of that type of player and I could see them trading him with just who they have in house right now.

    I love welker but he isn't worth more then the 3 year 22 mil deal that I believe the Pats top off at and I think they would prefer a 2 yr/16 million dollar deal.

You could see this coming once the first WR signed. S Johnson's contract made signing Wes almost impossible. All the other WR contracts just made it even harder. The only WR contract signed so far that seems out of whack is Lloyd's. I think that speaks volumes about the lack of interest in Lloyd due to his past history.

         If the Pats are interested in Amendola, they must act on or before April 20th: http://www.stltoday.com/sports/football/professional/amendola-back-with-rams-at-least-for-now/article_d697500b-ace9-5bff-b732-322c5767787b.html

         There are reasons why Amendola was sighted in Boston, other than to visit the Patriots. His mother lives in Boston, and his father is from Boston.

         He's a restricted free agent. He's been offered an amount in conformity with a second round tender. If the Pats want him, they'll have to sign him to an offer sheet by April 20th:  
         "The deadline is April 20 for restricted free agents to receive offer sheets from outside clubs. The Rams put a second-round tender on Amendola, so the Rams get a second-round draft pick if he gets an offer from another club and the Rams decline to match." http://www.stltoday.com/sports/football/professional/amendola-back-with-rams-at-least-for-now/article_d697500b-ace9-5bff-b732-322c5767787b.html#ixzz1r0sgdGUM

         So...if the Pats sign him to an offer sheet by April 20, the Rams will be given an opportunity to match. If they don't match it, he's a Patriot...and the Pats' 63rd overall pick goes to St. Louis.

This years draft is full of receiving talent all the way through round 4. At 62 +>, there are a number of options.
