I don't think we have the cash to do it. Granted, he is a great possession receiver, but I doubt Marrone sees him as a necessity at this point. If anything we need a tallish, fast WR.

No surprise.  As long as he leaves the AFC East, I'll be happy.

I am thinking of places I would like to see him play. It'd be really nice on the SF squad for Kaep.  NO could use a possession guy and Detroit would be amazing with him. Atlanta losing Gonzalez could be good. There aren't really any strong AFC teams that pass other then Denver. And I am not sure he would be good there.

He may have graham cracker knees...but it hasn't really affected his production one iota.

I put 65% of his success on his QB.

I'd say more like 43.9%  He didn't score a lot of touchdowns, but he had a pretty good season in 2006 with Joey Harrington throwing him the ball.  The guy can play.

no thanks. he's getting older, has been dropping quite a few balls in critical moments, his wife or girlfriend seems to have no brain-to-mouth filter. and if that's not enough for you, there's always that patriot taint that's on him like the stink of a dead fish in a hot trunk.

If he'd be willing to sign a 3 contract with massive performance bonuses; like 100 plus catches, playoffs, why the hell not? First player in NFL history to post 5 100 reception seasons.

Don't think the stats bear this  out. If I recall, welker had most all purpose yards in the league when he was in Miami.

The guy is really solid. I would sign him.

As long as the price tag isn't too high, I say yes.

The panthers I think will make a big play for him.  Could be huge for Newton bouncing back.
