According to the Miami Herald, the Dolphins wouldn’t mind signing Patriots’ wide receiver Wes Welker in addition to Mike Wallace, during free agency.
Maybe the fact the Dolphins are willing to do more than in the past is a reason one club source last week mentioned his affinity for signing Wes Welker in addition to Mike Wallace.

The AFC East isn’t exactly a divisional powerhouse, but they have some excellent free agents and the rest of the league is on notice. I’ve ranked the best AFC East free agents for the upcoming offseason. I think some of these stars, like Wes Welker, are likely to stay put, but that does not mean this isn’t a huge market for them.
