Spot on. The Pats need a WR who can stretch the field. Welker didn't come alive until the injuries to Hernandez/Gronkowski. I can see Welker wearing a different uniform if someone pays him. If not, he'll go back for a lot less money.
There's going to be a bidding war for Wallace. Dolphins really want him.
