John Elway must have been wearing his leather Fonzie jacket during negotiations today.

I can't believe 2 years at 12 million got Welker when it took 5 years at 31 for Amendola.

The contract is much better than I thought it would be at 6min/year. Another good move by Elway.

Agree here. Welker and Stokely are excellent at running routes and finding the open spot, moving the chains. Stokes will probably play again for minimum or slightly more and is better than any of our other 3rd or 4th WRs. Cut one or more of them and keep Stokes. We will definitely be drafting a WR somewhere along the way this year too.

Elway is throwing down the punk card on the rest of the NFL.

Keep Stokes as the 4th, and draft someone to be the 5th. We don't need Willis, Caldwell, or even either Tamme or Dreessen anymore. Keep one and let Green or Thomas fight for the #2.

The problem with Welker and Stokley on the same roster is you probably don't want either playing special teams. I guess welker kind of returns kicks, but I don't see that happening with the broncos.

Crazy that he only took 2 years/$12M. What the hell did the Pats do to piss him off that much?

Yep. Pat didn't spend a penny of other people's money on this did he:


Dude made promises he hasn't been keeping until just recently when he brought Elway back into the fold.

Good to see he's opened up the wallet, but acting like he was free with the cash when for the last decade the Broncos have been a top 10 cash revenue team and a bottom ten money spent team is just being naive.

A four receiver set with DT, Decker, Welker, and Stokley would be absolutely uncoverable. And the quick-reads with Welker and Stokley would mean blitzing would be all but pointless.

Yet another way he upgrades the team, because he could actually return it if he had to.

I do wonder what'll happen with Doom. I hope they can figure out a way for him to stay.

It's not looking good for Doom but who knows. We will know by saturday for sure though so no reason to sweat it out. Few more days and we will know what Elway is thinking at Dend. They may want to get bigger at that spot and Doomerville doesn't fit.

If the Broncos win the SB this upcoming season, you're gonna see several players retire, like Brooking, Welker, Bailey, McGahee, and perhaps Manning.....I'm sure we'll have plenty of money to keep Decker.

As for Doom, we still have no clue as to where he and the Broncos stand yet...but he hasn't been released yet, which should be a good sign. And for all the Freeney talk, keep in mind Del Rio might be thinking Freeney and Doom on the flanks.....who knows?

I cringe at that. They can turn him into the next welker. He has all the tools and we know what that type of environment does for a player.
Yeah, but he's also injury prone.....Welker is very durable having missed about 3-5 games over his entire career.

No doubt.

I hope he stays that way. However if he stays healthy, I think we will look back at the pats making out fine.

Don't get me wrong, I would still take Welker 100/100 times but just saying this move has the potential to be a good one for pats (not letting welker go but rather quickly snatching up amendola)
