New England Patriots
New York Jets
One big move that changed two teams is the signing of Wide receiver Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos leaving behind Tom Brady and the Patriots. Yes I know the Patriots wasted no time in signing Danny Amendola,but he isn’t Walker nor does he have the resume of Welker. I say this as a Jet fan. What was the purpose of Tom Brady signing for less money than he is worth if you don’t bring back his one true favorite target? At this point Brady can’t be happy losing Welker over a few million dollars to go to Denver to play with his rival …Peyton Manning. Needless to say despite whether Brady says the politically correct thing or not deep down inside you know he has to be steaming over this and has to be thinking what really is going on here?
Speaking of the Jets … the gutting of the Jets continues …Yeremiah Bell signed as a free agent with the Arizona Cardinals. La Ron Landry signed a four year deal with the Colts, Dustin Keller is scheduled to visit the Dolphins. Losing both Bell and Landry adds further credence that the Jets are going to move Darrelle Revis. If they had resigned both Bell and Landry Revis staying would give the Jets a stronger defense. Contrary to what some in the media think (WFAN radio Host Mike Francesa)the Jets one bargining chip that will go a long ways in their rebuilding process is trading Revis getting picks (late 1st round and second rounders) They are in full rebuilding mode no getting around it. Letting go solid players in their defense should tell you that Revis with his contract demands is going to be heading somewhere (Tampa Bay, 49ers, maybe even the Ravens)

“Wes Welker must look at Danny Amendola and shake his head. A younger — and likelier cheaper —...
There are actually reports surfacing that Touchdown Tommy was enraged that the Patriots let Wes Welker escape to Denver. Granted the two of them have some serious chemistry, but I don’t think Danny Amendola should be overlooked. If that guy can stay healthy, he’s pretty damn good. It’s too early to tell, but the Patriots offense was a juggernaut and Welker seemed like a perfect...
These need to go up in Denver Juan…
The 50 Cent team over at SK Energy Shots inked a sponsorship deal with New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. This helped lead to a big boost in sales in the North East region of the U.S. The marketing strategy included Wes on tons of garbage cans throughout the Boston are — Now that he’s officially heading to Denver, we’ll see...
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.
Welker, 31, had 118 catches for 1,354 yards last year...
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...
Wes Welker Wired (by amaris574)
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...
I'm as heartbroken as anybody right now. Watching Wes Welker leave for nothing more than an average contract has to make you think that the Patriots have something up their sleeves... RIGHT??
Well according to SI.com, Bill Belichick's master plan will not include free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha. The teams interested include the 49ers (seriously, where are they getting...
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.
The call that pushed the Patriots to the top of the football world 11 years ago may now be getting scrapped.
The “tuck rule” headlined Thursday’s announcement by the NFL’s Competition Committee that there will be six proposed rule changes, three proposed bylaw changes, and two proposed points of emphasis. Yes, Raider fans, they are finally proposing to change it.
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...
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:...
