Found March 13, 2013 on Patriots Life:
Well here comes the Schefter bomb. My heart just sunk. Filed to ESPN: Broncos in serious talks, trying to hammer out an agreement with Patriots WR Wes Welker. Decision expected today. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013 The little hope I had of a Wes Welker return is slipping away faster and faster. Earlier today it was reported that the Patriots low-balled Welker yesterday in their first offer of the off-season. Next, Bill Simmons said that Welker had to choose between Patriots and Broncos. Seems like the Broncos might be able to give Welker the money he wants, but we'll see. It would hurt 10x more if he pulled a Ray Allen and just left money on the table.

Wes Welker, Broncos in serious contract talks

Wes Welker may be hooking up with a future Hall of Fame QB after all. The former New England Patriots standout wide receiver is in “serious talks” with the Denver Broncos today, the second day of free agency, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.  The team reportedly wants to “hammer out a deal” with the All-Pro slot receiver.

Immediate Thoughts On The Patriots Ditching Wes Welker For Danny Amendola

Just before I left work today a co-worker interrupted my conversation to tell me that Wes Welker was gone, on his way to Denver.  A minute later, thanks to the wonders of twitter, I saw that it was a two-year deal.  I became puzzled, wasn’t that what the Pats offered Welker last year, a deal he rejected?  I rationalized that Welker surely got two years and $16 million or more...

Danny Amendola Reportedly Signed With Patriots on Tuesday, a Day Before Wes Welker Signed With Broncos

So, Danny Amendola wasn’t a reaction to Wes Welker‘s exit, after all. According to Tom E. Curran, the Patriots and the former Rams receiver agreed to the five-year deal on Tuesday — not Wednesday when the signing was leaked. That being said, Curran believes that the Pats had likely already moved on from Welker and went after Amendola when No. 83 went on the market. Check...

Wes Welker’s Departure Stings, But Patriots Fans Must Believe in the Genius of Bill Belichick

The easy thing is not always the right thing. That is the hardest part about running a successful NFL franchise. Unless you’re Bill Belichick, that is. The hoodie and his minions — and/or staff — have always been very much about putting the business first. While some teams add players to try and liven up their fan base or re-sign guys based off emotion and sentimentalism, Belichick...

Report: Lions Reach An Agreement With S Glover Quin

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Lions have reached agreement with former Texans S Glover Quin. Schefter reported earlier in the day that the Lions wanted to hammer out contract with Glover, Reggie Bush, and Jason Jones and they’ve managed to accomplish this in a matter of a few hours. They also re-signed CB Chris Houston as well. Detroit’s secondary was in desperate need...

Report: Patriots To Meet With Steelers RFA WR Emmanuel Sanders

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Patriots will meet with Steelers’ restricted free agent WR Emmanuel Sanders. This is very interesting given Sanders’ restricted status. Pittsburgh placed an low-round tender on him last week, which means New England would only have to give up a third-round pick to sign him away. The Patriots could always use the “poison pill” approach...

Titans Sign TE Delanie Walker To 4 Year $17.5 Million Deal
