At this point, “Patriot for life” is just about an oxymoron.
While Tom Brady is all but assured that he won’t be run out of Foxboro before he wants to go, few other Patriots can count on being around a second longer than the team considers them useful.
Wes Welker found that out the hard way this week. While Patriots owner Robert Kraft had long said he wanted to make Welker a “Patriot for life,” New England gave Welker just a few hours on the free-agent market before dealing to get his younger doppelganger, Danny Amendola. Welker could have remained with the Patriots, but it would have been on the team’s — and Bill Belichick‘s — terms. That usually means less money and no guarantees.
While Patriots fans are understandably upset that Welker joined rival Peyton Manning and his new team, they really shouldn’t be surprised. Belichick has never given money to veteran players who aren’t likely to produce in the future as they have in the past, no matter how great their pasts. Patriots hist...

These need to go up in Denver Juan…
The 50 Cent team over at SK Energy Shots inked a sponsorship deal with New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker. This helped lead to a big boost in sales in the North East region of the U.S. The marketing strategy included Wes on tons of garbage cans throughout the Boston are — Now that he’s officially heading to Denver, we’ll see...
Wes Welker may be hooking up with a future Hall of Fame QB after all.
The former New England Patriots standout wide receiver is in “serious talks” with the Denver Broncos today, the second day of free agency, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports. The team reportedly wants to “hammer out a deal” with the All-Pro slot receiver.
Welker, 31, had 118 catches for 1,354 yards last year...
Just before I left work today a co-worker interrupted my conversation to tell me that Wes Welker was gone, on his way to Denver. A minute later, thanks to the wonders of twitter, I saw that it was a two-year deal. I became puzzled, wasn’t that what the Pats offered Welker last year, a deal he rejected? I rationalized that Welker surely got two years and $16 million or more...
Wes Welker Wired (by amaris574)
There are actually reports surfacing that Touchdown Tommy was enraged that the Patriots let Wes Welker escape to Denver. Granted the two of them have some serious chemistry, but I don’t think Danny Amendola should be overlooked. If that guy can stay healthy, he’s pretty damn good. It’s too early to tell, but the Patriots offense was a juggernaut and Welker seemed like a perfect...
I'm as heartbroken as anybody right now. Watching Wes Welker leave for nothing more than an average contract has to make you think that the Patriots have something up their sleeves... RIGHT??
Well according to SI.com, Bill Belichick's master plan will not include free agent CB Nnamdi Asomugha. The teams interested include the 49ers (seriously, where are they getting...
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...
The easy thing is not always the right thing. That is the hardest part about running a successful NFL franchise. Unless you’re Bill Belichick, that is.
The hoodie and his minions — and/or staff — have always been very much about putting the business first. While some teams add players to try and liven up their fan base or re-sign guys based off emotion and sentimentalism, Belichick...
So, Danny Amendola wasn’t a reaction to Wes Welker‘s exit, after all.
According to Tom E. Curran, the Patriots and the former Rams receiver agreed to the five-year deal on Tuesday — not Wednesday when the signing was leaked. That being said, Curran believes that the Pats had likely already moved on from Welker and went after Amendola when No. 83 went on the market.
Greg Jennings went for the money when he signed with the Minnesota Vikings for five years, $47.5 million, $18 million guaranteed.

After Wes Welker signed in Denver I started thinking about The Trade again. So much has happened since the start of the 2011 Red Sox season. “The Best Team Ever” as coined by the Boston Herald did little, if anything, to make themselves the best team in Red Sox history. They historically collapsed in September of that season and the following summer things really fell apart:...
