There are also a few side benefits to this deal, to include a $150,000 incentive to catch 90 passes a season. Does this create a tip in the balance of the NFL with a new Dream Team in the making?With Welker in the fold, Peyton Manning just acquired one more bold and powerful slot receiver, making the full range of Peyton's "go to team" seems like a dream come true.  Welker joins the 1,000 yard receiving duo of Demaryius Thomas and Eric Decker.What happens now?
