Tom Brady just signed a brand new deal that will keep him in New England for the next five seasons, making his backup very much available. Ryan Mallett has spent two seasons learning behind Brady and now teams are reaching out with interest in the 2011 third-round pick. Two of the early suitors for Mallett are the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald. Mallet played in four games in 2012, completing just one of four passes and throwing an interception during his brief appearances on the field. That is not indicative of his potential as a quarterback, though, as his arm strength and accuracy had him as a first-round talent in 2011 before some character questions saw him plummet. The Bucs and Browns are both in unsteady places with their quarterbacks, which makes sense as to why they would reach out regarding Mallett. The Bucs have former first-round pick Josh Freeman under center, but he’s been inconsistent over his four-year career an...

Robert Kraft: “I love Wes Welker. I hope he remains a Patriot for life”

We are only hours away from the official start of NFL free agency, and rumors are abound as agents and organizations put out anonymous information to gauge interest from players and other teams.

The end of Wes Welker in New England

Wes Welker is no longer with the New England Patriots My first experience with Wes Welker came the year before he became a New England Patriot. A friend of mine was, and still is, a huge fan of the Miami Dolphins and it was there where Wes Welker first made a name for himself. The true fans of the Dolphins loved Wes Welker for the same reasons that New England Patriots fans loved...

The New England Patriots could care less about players not named Tom Brady

The Patriots jerked around Wes Welker for the better part of two whole seasons. And Welker, to his credit, handled things just about as well as someone being jerked around could. But after two years of waiting only to have the Patriots slow play him and then follow it up with low ball offer, he had finally had enough.Guess we should’ve seen this coming. It’s the Patriots way...

More NFL Free Agent Moves

One big move that changed two teams is the signing of Wide receiver Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos leaving behind Tom Brady and the Patriots. Yes I know the Patriots wasted no time in signing Danny Amendola,but he isn’t Walker nor does he have the resume of Welker. I say this as a Jet fan. What was the purpose of Tom Brady signing for less money than he is worth if you don...
