    A franchise mistake? No, we can be upset our fan favorites move on but this is not a franchise mistake by trading or resigning him.

    Ultimately results will define how bad or good of a deal this was.

    People gladly took a 2nd for Welker and years later act like It was the worst trade in NFL history.

    Trading Wes Welker ended up being one, but that's mostly because we traded him in the division to the damn Patriots who turned him into a HOF candidate. I don't see Jarvis biting us like that, but it still sucks to trade away one of the best drafted players we've developed in decades. For compensation that will most likely end up nowhere near his value...

    We weren't that great with him so you can't really say that it was an all time more dumb than passing on Brees. But its up there in the pantheon of st00pid LOLphin moves

    Obviously no. Smartest thing this franchise has done in years is not to severely over-pay that emotive little man. Andnow perhaps even more firepower to move up, if needed, to replace the numpty that would have been throwing to him. Clean the rot out.

    By default this means we will see more of Carroo and Grant, which I am looking forward to.

    People forget that we’ve been at the bottom of the league in offense for years now. I’m not downplaying Landry or what he brought to the table, but he was on those offenses.

    Hell the fact that we got two picks in return is pretty surprising. He priced himself off this team and our return could have very easily been a high round compensation pick. I’m not happy about him leaving but I think we made the best out of a difficult situation. So no, not a franchise mistake IMO.

    No. Landry caught a lot of passes for few yards and few TDs. Ultimately no big loss. If anything we saved the franchise by holding the line on ridiculous contracts for once.
