I want someone to sign Welker because he is an important piece of New England's offense.

!! If healthy he would prove to be a vital part of the offense. What I was getting at was those 3 guys and some of our own for Welkers contract..

I know you don't approve, I'll keep asking for him until he signs elsewhere..

Even though this offense put up points, it needs more weapons as there were long stretches where it was stagnant. Welker is a surefire weapon, no doubt about it, I would invest in Welker, but for not on a long term deal, something in the 2-3 year range.

If Denver is in the market for small white slot receivers, I'd prefer Amendola. Probably cheaper and he is younger than Welker.

Most of you don't know how talented Collie is.. Though he lit it up against Denver a few short years ago.. If he's healthy, I promise Manning will be asking for him, or will at least mention it to John. I bet they have already talked about this..

He has had 5? concussions the last two seasons. He is one hit away from having to retire. Even if he is healthy now, that can change with any hit to his head.

5 over his career.. That goes for any player in the NFL. Any hit, any given Sunday. We will see..

Here is what you are missing, once you have a concussion, the likely hood of having more increases greatly. He's had a few where he has taken a good shot and a few where he was hardly hit.

Look at Eric Lindros, Chris Miller, Green, Best, etc.....once you head down that road of reoccurring concussions, it doesn't get better. It gets worse.

Eric Lindros was cursed because of the NHL 99 N64 cover. After that, it was all downhill.

I understand.. I would rather have Collie than Caldwell. And should Collie get hurt, one of the younger players gets activated/pulled up.. He's worth the risk for veteran minimum.. Low risk/high reward.. I won't be bitter if he's not a Bronco, hope you guys aren't if he becomes one..

I am just afraid that Austin Collie is going to line up in the slot and end up trying to bake an invisible cake from an invisible oven instead of running his route.

!! He seemed pretty compitent when he said he wanted to make a comeback. Seriously Req, Collie at $725 K or Caldwell at $900 K?

IMHO, neither. I think Caldwell (along with Willis) are wastes and I don't know if Collie would ever get the go ahead medically to be able to perform again. There is no doubting his talent when he is healthy, but I don't want to see his lights go out at Mile High. I honestly think for his own personal health, his future and for his family that he stays out of football.

Maybe Manning will vouch for him, but I'd rather go after someone else in FA and take advantage of a very solid WR class. JMHO.

I'll take Donnie Avery at 1.5 million or even 2 million over either of those two. Hell I doubt it will even take that much. He signed for 615K last year.
