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.


You didnt think about the cap? NO.......

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.

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
