http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/03/15/felger-mazz-mike-reiss-calls-in-to-challenge-felger/ Mike Felger (Comcast Sports TV Anchor and Radio Host) had allegedly called out Mike Reiss (Patriots Beat Writer for ESPN Boston) for being "in the bag of the team." Felger is referring to Reiss's comment about Wes Welker's agent being partially at fault for the mishap in contract dealings. In response, Mike Reiss called in to dispel these rumors and defend his integrity as an objective sports writer. How dare you make Mike Reiss angry. He is a legend. I really like what Mike Reiss was saying, and I love seeing him show some emotion. The details of this whole Welker deal are still murky to me. Reiss says that Welker and the Patriots were so far apart on how the market would assess his worth. However, when Welker decided to test the market, the Patriots moved on, and Welker ultimately realized that the market was where the Patriots expected it to be. It is a shame that t...

Broncos becoming the Super Bowl favorite with Welker signing

Wes Welker may be the most fortunate wide receiver in the NFL. He spent six seasons in New England with Tom Brady, one of the top quarterbacks in recent history, and now he's heading to Denver to join Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. In other words, Wes Welker may be the luckiest wide receiver in the history of the NFL. Still, it's his impact on the Broncos'...

How much better is Wes Welker than Danny Amendola?

There might have been other factors at play, but on Wednesday, the New England Patriots essentially decided that they'd rather have Danny Amendola on their roster than Wes Welker. The deal Amendola signed with New England pays him a higher annual salary than the one Welker inked with the Denver Broncos, and is nearly as valuable when it comes to guaranteed money.  In fact...

John Elway Called Peyton Manning Before Signing Wes Welker

John Elway may be the Broncos top executive, but Peyton Manning is the teams general, and with that Elway consulted with and made sure Manning was on board before going all in on Wes Welker according to the Denver Post. “I asked Peyton about it yesterday to make sure he was on board,’’ Elway said. Welker will take slot receiver Brandon Stokley’s position, so it’s definitely...

Wes Welker Brings Super Bowl Aspirations to the Denver Broncos

Like most things in life, J. Cole perfectly explained the Wes Welker trade from the New England Patriots to the Denver Broncos with two lines from his song, “You Got It” off of his immaculate mixtape titled “Friday Nigh Lights.” Cole raps, “Well one man’s trash is another man’s treasure/One man’s pain is another man’s pleasure.” As a Patriots fan, I am still not...

Report: Peyton Manning Pushed to Get Wes Welker, ‘Take Away Tom Brady’s Favorite Weapon’

Think Peyton Manning was excited to steal Tom Brady‘s kicker? Well, he’s pretty happy he got his slot receiver this time around, too. Manning was in the improbable role of Patriot-poacher on Wednesday when Wes Welker agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the Broncos that few people saw coming. While Denver was reportedly constrained in how much it could offer Welker, with...

Ok, this is weird. Danny Amendola actually signed on Tuesday?

So, we all assumed that the Patriots saw that Wes Welker was being offered two years, $12 million by the Broncos and refused to match that low offer. Apparently, that wasn't the case. They didn't care because they had already signed Danny Amendola, this didn't happen yesterday when we heard about it. It happened two days ago? Interesting news: Amendola signed with...

The Denver Broncos just took away one of the New England Patriots play-makers. They signed Wes Welker today to get quarterback Peyton Manning another target to throw to. The Broncos picked up a great receiver who will make an immediate impact for the Broncos. Welker has all kinds of experience, the play-offs, super bowls you name it and Welker has done it in the NFL. Reports coming...

Former Red Sox: Where Are They Now?

After Wes Welker signed in Denver I started thinking about The Trade again. So much has happened since the start of the 2011 Red Sox season. “The Best Team Ever” as coined by the Boston Herald did little, if anything, to make themselves the best team in Red Sox history. They historically collapsed in September of that season and the following summer things really fell apart:...

Tom Brady has won with any wide receiver that the Patriots have given him. With many different playing styles and personalities, Brady has always utilized his resources.Wide receivers like Donte' Stallworth, Deion Branch, Troy Brown, Randy Moss, and Jabar Gaffney are a few that Tom Brady has had to adjust to over the years.Unlike Manning, Brady hasn't had two wide receivers...

According to reports from Mike Reiss of ESPN and Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, the Patriots actually signed St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola on Tuesday, one day before Wes Welker signed with the Broncos and before the Pats announced the agreement with Amendola.
