Patriots owner Robert Kraft would like to keep employing Wes Welker. There seems to be little question that the feeling is reciprocated by the slot receiver. Sentiment, however, doesn't pay the bills, and that's where things get complicated. Kraft noted again yesterday that both sides need to come together to arrange a deal. Of course, the Patriots could use the power move of hitting Welker with the franchise tag again, but the chances of that happening are highly unlikely. It's bad business on a variety of levels, the least of which being it would cost the team $11.5 million in 2013.
