The Awesome Boston:
Filed to ESPN: Broncos in serious talks, trying to hammer out an agreement with Patriots WR Wes Welker. Decision expected today.

A.B. If the Denver Broncos end up signing Wes Welker, Tom Brady and the Patriots not only lose their most productive wide receiver of the last 5 years, it would also mean that their long-time AFC nemesis, Peyton Manning, gains an incredible asset in the passing game. For most Patriots fans it would be bad enough if Welker signed elsewhere, period. But signing up to play with the other half of the “who is the better quarterback?,” debate would just be salt in the wound.
On the other hand, for Welker, it might be the perfect parting shot to take at the Kraft family. If he truly feels disrespected by the franchise tag last year and low ball offers thus far – there is no better way to make it known than to sign a huge contract and end his career with Mr. Manning.

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...

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.

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...
