    I don't want him, period.

    All he would be is a developmental stopper for our drafted WR's.

    He could have burned a dolphins jersey but if he caught a 40 yard touchdown against the Jets all would be widely forgiven, thats how sports is for most people. I hold grudges though lol

    Wasn't Welker's fault he became a Patriot...you can blame Cam Cameron for that move don't take it out on Welker.

    With that said, I don't want him back. He's a heck of a receiver but unless it's Greg Jennings we need young players to grow with Tannehill. I say Jennings because he can play every WR position on the field, he's an outstanding route runner, knows the offense and he can teach the younger receivers how to play in this offense. I don't think Welker brings all that to the table.

    I knew you all would react based on emotion. But do you really think the FO is going to care that he once said he wished he played for the Patriots? Well, he got his wish, and now they treat him like dirt, certainly not like the guy who holds the record, still continuing, for 100 catch seasons. First people said it was only because Moss was on the other side. Proven untrue. Now they say it's because he has such a connection to Brady. But when he was here he was already showing he was going to be big time, and who did he have throwing to him? I'm more concerned that Rodgers may have been making Jennings look better than he is. I repeat, Welker would be a huge upgrade. But I agree that it's a long shot.

    I felt the same way when Welker had one touchdown In 3 years here

    ​46 games here with 1 receiving touchdown had me convinced he was going to be "big time"

    not his fault for becoming a patriot, its his fault for staying one, he has a love affair worse than Moss did, thus Im with Jared81 he can suck a fat one

    You are kidding right?
    The ****ing ******* that was wishing he was on the other sideline WHILE he was playing for us?

    Regardless if this happens more often than not, how many of those players actually come out IN THE OPEN AND SAY IT IN PUBLIC?
    What an open act of utter disrespect.
    Most players have the decency to keep those private thoughts to themselves.
    Not this ****er.
    **** this ******* I hope that piece of **** never comes near a Miami Dolphin uniform.

    He will forever be an enemy of this organization. You don't bring an ******* like that back. Ever.

    Yea people get emotional about stupid stuff they dont understand. Free agents always express how happy they are to play for a certain team, do people think every person that signs a big contract with Miami is so happy because it was Miami that signed them. Welker is a damn good football player that would make any team better.

    Nobody is arguing Welker is way better than Bess, but he's too old and we cant afford a slot receiver as expensive as him.

    I say he will be a Cowboy although I am assuming that New England is now going to make a push for Mike Wallace unfortunaly!

    He's a system player who is playing with a very good QB. His impact on any other team would not be that great. In fact, I doubt any team would give him an elite WR contract. I would be shocked. His greatest value is with the Pats and I think he KNOWS it. He will take a reasonable deal from the Pats rather than exposing himself to the open market.

    HE had an outstanding year when Brady went down with 111 receptions and 1165 yards so its not only Brady that makes Welker a great. It would all depend on the offense for any receiver.

    Plenty of players say they have always wanted to play for such and such team. If Miami did not play so cheap they could have kept welker but they tried to slide him by with a lower tender and got burned.

    I have never heard of any other player dumb enough to say they wished they played for a division rival while they were on their own sideline

    Bro...averaging 10 yards a catch is not GREAT. If you throw a lot at a player he will make catches obviously. How many times is Welker targeted a season? 154 times per a season on average, 6.1 TDs per a season in 6 years with New England. Career 11.2 yards/reception. Is Welker better than Bess? Of course...but the dude is a product of his system. No way should someone who makes over 100 receptions a year average 6 tds....that is a joke. Welker is not worth signing here because he is not that big of an upgrade over Bess. Sorry! He would not come here and put up 100 catches. Welker is a product of his system which you will see when he leaves New England, if he does. He is not even the best receiving threat on his own team.


    The bold statement is also false.....great receivers excel everywhere. Example Brandon Marshall. You telling me Megatron is not Megatron on some other team? Welker is not good enough to be a number 1. Plain and simple, Welker is a good slot receiver who will excel when put in the RIGHT system.

    Maybe if we go back to 2007 and not make the trade to the hatetriots, then I say go for it. He is on the wrong side of 30 and he is not an upgrade over Bess. They are identical players, Welker has just had Tom Brady the last 6 years. Miami has had Pennington, Henne, Moore and last year Tannehill throwing him the rock. Pass on his 10 mil a year contract demands and bring a real playmaker like Mike Wallace into the mix.

    This is the truth. Other teams won't be running his option routes to death like him and Brady do.
    And for the record, in my humble opinion at least, if Bess was in New England, he would be twice the player Welker is.
    He would become the option route king.

    Regardless, I don't see how Welker does anything to help us.
    After seeing his last 2 playoff games, he has definitely fallen off a bit imho.
    Let the chump go, time to look to the future.

    We **** on ourselves with the Welker deal. Our team was being run by a bunch of dumbasses and ON TOP of that we got TWO picks for him. Pretty awesome seeing as we got the kid for a bag of Doritos. We then proceeded to crap all over those two picks and get NOTHING out of those selections.(Samson Satele and Abraham "something"- i think those were the two). The player HAD skills, and we failed to get someone worth a damn to capitlize on those skills. I don't hate the guy for wanting to go somewhere else- hell sometimes back then i wished i pulled for another team.
    BUT i think he is older now and surely not worth 10mil/year.

    Seriously though don't hate on a guy for not liking the way our team was run when we all hated the way it was being run too.

    Can't disagree more. No WR I have ever seen is as adept at getting open over the middle as Welker. Certainly not Bess. If Brady can count to 4, Welker is open. Whenever Brady escapes the rush, Welker is open. He is small and very shifty, and DB's cannot stay with him. Yes, he drops a few more than he used to, but still catches the vast majority. He has never beeen a TD machine, that is not his game, but he certainly is a 1st down machine.

    Bess does the same thing. The major difference, besides qbs,, is targets. As I stated above, welker was targeted 154 times/season since going to New England. If Bess was targeted that much he would be a 100 catch a year guy. The reality is Welker is a good SLOT receiver. We have a good slot receiver already....why would we possibly want one another one? Welker is a system receiver. The drop off to Bess would not warrant the money to sign him. As far as first down machine goes, Bess is exactly that. You need to research the stats man....Bess is EXACTLY what welker is minus having a HoF qb who likes him.lol
