In response to NCPatsFan1971's comment:
Welker is gone. I'll miss him as being one of the best Patriots ever.
Having said that, he has been paid 10's of millions of dollars for his services as a Patriot. Now he gets a two year multi million dollar contract with Denver. Good for him and I guess that's TS for us as fans.
One question I have is how high is high regarding these free agent signings? I suppose we can say "well that's what the market demands". This might be the case. But doesn't the bulk of money that these players get come from TV Revenue? This is the revenue that comes from advertisers who pay to advertise their products. This cost is then passed on to consumers in the price of goods which in turn is paid for by us. So I respect Brady for admitting that he as a Pro Football Player get's more than his fair share.
But all that asside, who is Brady going to throw to now? I'm pretty confident that somebody will get open. :)
Brady's favorite receiver used to be the open receiver; I'm sure he will get back to that. Use the money we saved on Wes to shore up the pass rush and sign a safety (Reed or Wilson). As much as I love Wes, I'm excited to see how this offense evolves. Hern will play more of the slot with Gronk and Ballard in a two tight end set. If Edelman can stay healthy(I know that is a huge 'if'), he, along with more targets to Lloyd and the tight ends, will surely make up for Wes's loss production. Fear not, my fellow Pats fans.
Lloyd barely catches 50% of his passes and gets zero YAC, Welker was the league leader!
Edelman, Hern, Gronk are always hurt. Good job BB! NOT
