    Wes is done in New England after this year. I think he would fit in well with tennehill.

    He'd have to want to come here first. The only way we get him here is by breaking the bank, and I don't think we should break the bank for Wes Welker.

    Welker will have a big year, get a new deal and retire a patriot.


    Swope would be brilliant though - the only person in the entire draft I actually specifically want. Shame we dont need him as we have Bess.

    Does welker really hate belichik or does the media blow it out of proportion?

    I'm not really sure if Swope is strictly a slot receiver. I think he can play on the outside as well.

    Yes please.

    Hoping our WR corps next year is:
    Wallace
    Hartline
    Swope
    Bess

    Also draft a TE with one of our 2nds and Tannehill will blow peoples' minds.

    Welker and Bess are redundant. I would be surprised if we go the free agent route for a #1 WR. With all of our picks we will use at least one high pick on a WR and a low/mid on a WR.

    Wes welker is most likely not coming back. I met him in a Irish pub a few years back in NYC. Actually a gambling pub during the derby. I was the only one who noticed him, went up to him and told him how much he was missed. He said the dolphin organization was a joke compared to new England and was happy to be out of there. He seemed like a bit of a dummy to be honest but seemed pretty certain about Miami. Anyway just sharing

    Over 1550 yards last season, 484 yards in 5 games this season despite the drop in snaps(and 2nd in the league in receptions). He's a matchup nightmare in the slot.

    He was never a great athletic player, so age has less impact on him than a player that relies on his athleticism to be good.

    For the right price he is a pretty awesome player and Bess although good is nowhere near as good as Welker(not a slap there really is no one in league as good as Wes as what he does) If Welker was 6 foot and running 4.2 40's people would be calling him one of the best ever but because he is sterotyped he doesnt get the credit he deserves

    ---------- Post added at 10:21 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:20 PM ----------

    Well he has 4 seasons of 110 plus receptions so yea he is that good. There have been tons of receivers that have played with Brady and none besides him have performed like that. In fact he is the only receiver in NFL history to ever do that.

    Most players always wanted to play for their current team until they go to another team. The only reason Welker is not here is we tried to get fancy and play cheap by tendering him as a second instead of a 1st. Basically half a million dollars saved lost Welker.To put that in perspective we gave Lydon Murtha the same tender and he had never even played lol

    Sorry Welker has never been a number one receiver. He has always had many others to take pressure off him. Not worth the money....let him stay in NE. Would much rather have Bowe or Wallace if at all possible.

    Have You Seen Welker Lately?

    He's an old man! He needs a cane to walk up the field.

    Uh how about Moss? I know he is easy to overlook. Gronk and Hernandez? Seriously ppl....Welker is good but he is not a true number 1. He plays the slot and there is no way he would open up the offense if he were on Miami. Are you honestly going to say that teams would not be able to shut him down if he was on Miami right now? Sorry I will respectfully disagree.lol
    How many times has he ever had 10+ tds in a season? That would be NEVER. Ya he is the man in NE.lol

    Not only is Welker too old, but he's just not the prototype of a reciever philbin's looking for. He has very specific dementions; 6 ft to 6'2" 180-210 pounds, sub 4.5 40

    I don't think Welker will go anywhere after this season. Patriots will work out a deal with him. He is just too valuable to their offense.
    He extends drives and allows them to score more points because of the 1st downs which results in more wins.


    Before Welker arrived (2001-2006) the Patriots had a record of 70-26 (72.9%) and scored 23.9 points per game on offense.
    After Welker arrived (2007-present) the Patriots have a record of 67-18 (78.8%) and scored 30.8 points per game on offense.

    7 extra wins and almost a TD a game improvement since Welker arrived. We should have never traded him to the Patriots.
    He has helped them become almost unstoppable.

    As a player I'd certainly take him back here at the Dolphins. Four of his five seasons at the Pats has resulted in over 1,000 receiving yards, and he typically does well with TDs as well. The only issue I'd have is that he fell out with the Pats over wanting a large contract. So would the Dolphins actually want to pay him a large contract at his age?

    I'm unsure. If he was coming in on Reggie Bush type money, then I'd say sure get him signed up. But if he's wanting a big pay day, then I think there are other receivers that will hit free agency that might provide better value. He'd be a heck of an asset though, but he wasn't exactly complementary about the team when he left.

    1. Welker burned bridges on his way out. He's a dbag.
    2. We have an excellent slot receiver.

    No. We need a strong outside reciever. We have the inside guys already.

    Anyone arguing Welker is a prototypical number 1 is missing the point here. I'm arguing your assessment that welker is no good, hes just a product of the system and "others" taking pressure off him so he just walks into 1100+ yard seasons year in an year out. When Moss was there, Welker just meandered his way to 112, 111, and 123 reception seasons. When Moss crumbled into a shell of an NFL WR, welker still put up 86 receptions and 900 yards..... coming off a torn ACL in the last week of the season. Gronk is great, Hernandez is great, but that doesn't discredit Wes one bit, he is unguardable in the slot.

    If you think he could get shut down in our offense, then you must just think he is some scrub, because as much as I love davone bess, welker blows him out of the water, even now at his "old age".

    I don't think we should bring him in at all, feel like he burned his bridges and that ship has sailed a long time ago, but if you watched NE play since 2007... one guy is the focal point of that offense that makes it move up and down the field..... and thats been Wes

    Not once did I ever say Welker is no good. My point is that he is not a prototypical number 1 receiver. Plain and simple. He makes lots of catches but he doesn't put up large YPC numbers and scores few TDS. That tells me he is a great guy between the 20s and a chain mover but not the true go to guy. In Miami they need a true go to guy...Welker is not that guy period. It would be interesting to see how many passes Welker has caught more than 6-7 yards down field. I would rather have bowe or wallace and keep bess and hartline. Welker has no place here. Lastly, I disagree with you that Welker "blows Bess out of the water"....Bess easily put up better stats in Miami's offense than Welker. The only way you could truly get a good comparison is to put them on the same team. Bess is an excellent slot receiver and Welker is as well but neither is a number one!

    I disagree with you about bess vs. welker, but other than that, I agree with this explanation. When someone uses the phrase, "product of the system"... that usually means they aren't very good but are.... simply a result of the system.

    We both agree he is not a prototypical number 1.
    I would much rather have wallace and bowe... but just because of age vs bowe. i think bowe is beyond a waste of money... terrible hands. and only produces in garbage time

    I like Bowe....but if I had my choice I would prefer Wallace. Nice to have that speed to stretch the field. Of course if Jennings is healthy, I would rather have him over both.lol
