New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft spoke with reporters Friday in New Orleans, touching on a number of subjects, but one that particularly stood out was his stance on the possibility of Wes Welker being back with the team next year. "I'd love him to be around," Kraft said, via Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston. "He's a great guy. Like I've said all along, it takes two sides to make a transaction. We have to manage the lawyers and the agents that they don't mess it up. I think Wes wants to be with us, and we want him here. It's just a matter of whether both sides can be intelligent." Looks like Kraft is not a big fan of the people who are representing Welker. During his time with the media, Kraft also made a classy gesture towards his former employee, former Pats head coach Bill Parcells, who he is now publicly endorsing for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Things ended on a sour note between the two, but bygones are bygones; a classy move by one the premier NFL team owners. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});

  • How can you compare Parcells football intelligence with Kraft. My dog knows more about football then Kraft does. If it wasn't for Bellacheat Kraft would be struggling to break even. Yes Bellacheat.
