Wes Welker has been locked into contract negotiations with the New England Patriots virtually since the moment the Patriots walked off the field after their Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants but there has been very little progress. Instead Welker has had the pleasure of watching the Patriots receiving core get a whole lot deeper over the offseason.
The latest signing is an ex-Patriot and former favorite target of Tom Brady’s, Jabar Gaffney. Gaffney left the Patriots’ organization in 2009 to join offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in Denver but McDaniels came back to New England at the end of last year. It seems that Gaffney has decided to rejoin his former coordinator once again. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE »

  • Gaffney is not the posession receiver that Welker is.
  • None of those WR's can hang with Welker and if the Pats are smart they pay up or trade him for a first round pick so they can try to get a replacment


    Welker is perfect in that system though and should stay the Pats havnt had much luck drafting wide outs
