    Welker Deserves a Big Bucks Extension

    There's been lots of discussions in the opening weeks of the season as to whether Welker should be given a new contract and for how much and how long and I hope it's a a topic that needs to be put to rest ASAP by ownership. He's obviously fully recovered from the knee injury and he's cured himself of the oopsies that plagued him last season. You have all these primadonna big name (money) players complaining about how they've outplayed the value of their contracts and here you have the humble Welker who's outplayed his contract from the moment he stopped on the field in a Pats uniform, never displaying anything but a dedication to this team and his teammates. His name deserves to be associated with likes of Brady, Bruschi, Brown and Faulk, forever synonymous with New England Patriot.

    Pay the man BB! You don't want him playing against Pats with the porous secondary that's plagued the team since Ty Law left.

    Same old story. He is 31 next season. The Pats might shy away from a big money deal at that age. They would be looking at a 34-35 year old receiver by the end of that contract.

    Troll, who cares how old Wes is at the end of the contract? Contract aren't guaranteed in the NFL! You always have something negative to say. I agree with the original poster; pay the man and keep him here.

    CANTAB... Spot on. They should have given Wes the money after he comopsed his ODE to Toes Ryan.

    Re: Welker Deserves a Big Bucks Extension

    After last season I wondered if they'd put up big bucks for Wes.  And was a bit uncertain as to if they should.  But after seeing Edelman NOT make further progress in filling his shoes (well, besides kick returning duties), and seeing Wes raise his game to near receiver perfection....  Now, after reading the above point and realizing it would be worth at least 1 mill a year just to keep him away from other teams . . .PAY THE MAN!  Besides which, watching the Mighty Mite do his stuff is just plain good fun.

    Wes Welker needs to retire as a Patriot.  Make it happen Mr. Kraft.

    3YRS 27-30 MIL seems reasonable

    In Response to Re: Welker Deserves a Big Bucks Extension : Typical oblivious fan. I talk football about how the team might look at the situation considering the cap and you go into your pathetic little drama queen troll attack. You're a pitiful and clueless excuse for a Pats fan. Of course I want to keep Welker.

    why would you be offended when someone tells you something about yourself that is true...based on your own written words

    I agree both sides probably want to get a deal done. Welker was good in Miami, but the Pats made him what he is today.  He can look no further than Deion Branch to see that the gra$$ isn't always greener.  You'd have to think he's thinking about his legacy as a Patriot at this point too.  If he has 3-4 more good years in a Pats uni, he gets into the Pats' HOF.

    Fitz got 15 per year 50 mil guaranteed Holmes got 10 per year 24 mil guaranteed Unless Wes' agent is dumb and hates money and his client he will get a contract between the two IMO. If I was Wes I would say I'm not taking less than Holmes when I'm twice as good. My guess would be 4 years 45 mil, 30 guaranteed or around there.

    LOL zero chance. Welkers value to the Pats is far higher than any other team and no other team will pay Welker 10 mil per. Absolutely none. 3/4 of league a slot reciever is a bit player piece of the puzzle. They are not going outbid themselves.

    Wes may get offered more money by another team but:

    - He's loyal and I'm pretty sure he'll want to stay with the one team that believed in him and traded a second-round pick for him.

    - He knows that Brady is a huge part of the reason he's putting up such good numbers. One difference between good QBs and great QBs is where they put the ball, allowing receivers to run after and avoid the big hit. Brady has done a lot to protect Wes by just being good.
