It doesn't have anything to do with needs for me, it has to do with his age, contract and the fact that we have a damn near clone already on the roster in Steve Smith. If we're going to invest in a WR I'd far rather get a young, proven guy like Wallace, or a promising young guy in the draft with a rookie contract.

...Wallace seems like too much of a sucker bet....

Solid opinions everyone -

One issue I have, everyone keeps mentioning the deep threat? Smitty can fall under that classification, even if his size isn't ideal, he can still stretch the field. Adding Welker in the slot would give us another look we do not have...

I do not believe we will draft Patterson or Allen, so signing Welker to a one year contract would be a boost (all wishful thinking of course, I know it won't happen). Just wanting to hear what fellow Huddlers thought...

We need big, physical receivers. Smitty is an exception because he plays big.

Smitty doesn't have the vertical speed to be that deep threat anymore consistantly. Which is why we didn't see that connection this year.

He burns people on other routes bc he runs great routes, is physical, and is crafty as one can get

Anything Welker can do, Smitty can do better.

111 rec, 1165 yards....with Matt Cassel.

The offense they run simply allows him to be the beast he is. Fitting your scheme...is a drastically overlooked aspect of football talk.

If...

...it were a few years ago

...we ran a West Coast offense

...we didn't already have Steve Smith

I'd like the idea a lot better.

I wouldn't scream if they signed him, but I don't really think it's a 'big move' kind of thing.

I'll take aging system WR that I'm not interested in signing for $200, Alex.
[/quote]]Wait are you kidding me. Yes Welker is getting up in age. But didn't we sign Ricky Proehl in his mid 30s as well back in the day. Wasn't Ricky part of that group that went to SB38. Why yes he was. Welker still has a lot left in him. If the Panthers was to draft a young WR in the first or second round of this year draft. We would have Smith, Proehl and Welker to guide and help that young WR learn how to be a top notch WR. That goes for the other guys as well that we have on this current roster. While getting Welker would be a long shot. He would be a good fix for us for a year or 2. Age has nothing to do with it. Welker can still play.

Adams with a little time can be a good solution in the slot. Sometimes the answer to your need is already on the roster..........

I heard on NFL sirius this morning Welker is definitely not signing with the Pats and is going to try his hand at the FA market.
