look man if hes gunna test the market, and if everyone has comes to the consensus that hes cheap, then why the hell not? The more talent the better. He doesnt have to be the answer to our reciever problem, bbut he could be part of it.
Im not even advocating the guy, its just funny how some people regardless of position will just say a stright no to a guy. Lol we suck. We need help. [b]Beggers cant be choosers folks. [/b]And explainations as to why not to attain a player is better then "no".
But i agree with you man. Hes not the answer

You have to be choosy when you have as little cap space as we do, we're also looking to the future and that's not what Welker gives you.

He's one of my favorite players in the league, I just don't think he's a good fit here, now.

The problem is Wes Welker will not go cheap. That is the reason why he is testing the FA market in the first place.

[/quote]I didnt think about that cap man. Thats acually a good point. Its not all about the talent its about the $ as well. Would much rather spend the little $ we have on a cb or something. If we took the money out of it i wouldnt see the harm of having welker here.

Not to derail the thread but do you guys think Joe Adams makes an impact at WR this year?

Welker is one of the best WRs in the game....but he has to play on a Welker friendly scheme and with a QB who plays that style.

Basically Welker is the polar opposite of what you want paired with Cam.

Cam needs a big play deep threat....which even our beloved Smitty isn't much of today. Cam has few problems in the redzone so I am not overly concerned about a big redzone WR. His issues are more getting to the redzone enough

Welker would be perfect in KC with Alex "checkdown" Smith.
