    Welker wanted to stick it to the Pats... either that or he completely got fleeced by Denver. Or, as I think is more likely, he turned down more money and left the Pats due to a bruised ego.

    It's always good to get down into the weeds on these things as the dust begins to settle.  Perhaps at some point the vilification of BB (not that he gives much of a sh1t) over this deal will finally fade away.

    Just wish Welker signed that 2 yr, 16 mil all guarenteed when Pats offered him this.  He declined it though.

    I have to agree with Rusty on this though.

    Fans like to blame the team or the player in these dealings but the reality is the player is paying an agent to look out for his best interests finacially and these agents rarely get the blame when they read the market incorrectly.

    I believe the Pats already had a contingency plan set up ( Amendola) in case they felt like Wes was ready to bolt.  When Wes went to Denver,  they jumped on DA before some other team scooped him up.  Good business by the Pats.  Bad business by Welker's agent.

    I have been saying this since tuesday. His agent totally mis-read welkers value around the league.



    lol and ive been saying it about WEs for 2 years! Cant believe they were that dumb. BB knew what others were willing to pay and offered a very good deal last year 2/16 and a year later, he couldnt get close to that. This is the BEST slot WR In the game and like I said,they dont GET PAID like # 1s with 4.4 speed, height and TD making ability.

    What I found interesting also was the 5M/yr 2 year deal supposedly had incentives that could have taken it to 8M/yr. But Welker thought the incentives were too hard to reach.

    I agree ... Ego and Agent got in the way of this thing a while ago.

    he averages over 100 catches per year with the pats for 6 years, but yet he thinks the incentives were too hard to reach? wow.

    I think a lot of agents screwed up.

    Didn't Avril turn down 3 years at 30?

    He ended up (including the franchise tag) 3 years and 25

    slot receiver market, DE market, and now I'm thinking cb market was below expected
