Some more athletes coming to the defense of Welker, after Matt Light voiced his thoughts earlier this week.
This time it's two of the greatest wide receivers to play the game. Michael Irvin of the NFL Network shared his thoughts with the Boston Herald.
“Absolutely, absolutely crazy. But I also think Wes would be crazy leaving the Patriots,” said Irvin, who works for the NFL Network. “What you need is a great coach that says, ‘I recognize your skill set. Let me make sure I ask you to do what you do best.’ That’s what Wes does. That’s what New England does with Wes. That’s why it’s a perfect fit.
“Tom Brady loves throwing inside. You’ve got (Rob Gronkowski) who is going to give you vertical size and also get you up the field vertical, but you need that small guy that works in small spaces. Wes is that guy. As long as you have Tom Brady, you better have Wes Welker, or you will see Tom Brady not (playing) like Tom Brady.”
The thing I take the most out of Irvin's comments it how
BEST OF MAXIM
If you hadn't heard, Rob Gronkowski likes to have a good time. He didn't get the nickname Gronk for no reason.
BRING HIM BACK
Wes Welker is going to be a free agent. A few of the best wide receivers in history say the Patriots need to bring him back.

Tom Brady is by far the most important piece to the New England Patriots’ championship hopes. So, keeping him upright and well protected should be a top priority.
Nate Solder and Logan Mankins were two of the NFL’s best blind-side blockers in 2012, keeping Brady comfortable inside the pocket consistently throughout the season. The right side of the line was equally as impressive...
