I disagree. Welker is a possession WR who isn't going to stretch the d vertically. The Pats have 2 TEs that can do that--Hernandez is a fine slot WR too. They don't have a vertical threat though. Wallace is one of the elite vertical guys in the league and he's in his prime. Welker is a very good possession slot WR, but he's aging and the Pats have guys who can stretch the d horizontally. Wallace and Welker are apples and oranges at this point.
