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 who have stayed for years with him.One thing is for sure, Brady will be the same quarterback regardless who is catching the passes.Peyton Manning has had a consistency over his NFL career with his two main receivers, Marvin Harrison and Reggie Wayne.Marvin Harrison had 14,580 yards receiving with 128 TDs over 11 years as one of the targets for Manning. Reggie Wayne played with Manning for 10 years and had over 10,000 yards receiving with 69 touchdowns.In more recent years, Manning has managed the game with possession type tight ends and wide receivers Jacob Tamme, Austin Collie, and long-time tight end, D...

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...
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...
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...
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'...
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.
“WHEN YOU LEAVE AMENDOLER NATION, YOU GET THE DAAHHHKKKIEEE TREATMENT!”
Some Patriots fans aren’t even waiting until their team hosts the Broncos this coming season. They’re torching their old Wes Welker jerseys now, while the wound is still fresh and their buzz is still intact. Oh noes, Wes Welker is being stricken from Patriots lore-ah. He must be devastated.
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...

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. The Patriots and Amendola agreed to a five year, $31 million deal with $10 guaranteed, supposedly on Wednesday. However...
