BACK TO MIAMI!


That actually would be a pretty bad deal for Miami, considering they'd be trading within the division, NE's rep in deals, and they need a boundary receiver, not a slot receiver.

What about the Eagles. Belichick and Reid are always making deals.

Maybe Carolina? With the Saints struggling, maybe they see an opportunity to make the playoffs. Welker could be a nice reliable target, especially with Smith a bit banged up.

Seattle could possibly make a play as they don't really have any great receivers and see themselves as playoff contenders. Lions or Chargers could be possibilities as well due to need and the fact that they're good passing attacks.

Buffalo or KC make sense due to need, but one team will probably not want to give up the draft pick since they'll be picking high and the other is in the Pats division

Reid is desparate to have a successful season, but they already have Maclin Jackson Avant, Celek and McCoy as pass catching options. I though about this one too

If they trade him, it won't be to a contending team within the AFC.
The Browns, Chiefs, Colts and Bengals are the only AFC teams I could see him going to.


Why would Cleveland trade for him?

Are people oblivious to our youth movement we've done under Holmgren and Heckertt? Laughing

People are pretty oblivious to most things the Browns do Laughing
(it was too easy not to)

But seriously, I don't think he makes sense for a rebuilding team like Cleveland or Miami at all. He'll be done by the time they're contending. The Bengals would be a great fit and they have the cap room to do it.

You dont think having Seymour would help your defense? Do you think it would have improved your chances in a very tight superbowl last year?

Seymour would have been gone after 2009. The Pats tagged Wilfork, so Seymour would've been free to go wherever he wanted. The Raiders ended up giving him $15M a year, just to give you an idea of his post-2009 value.


LOL at using an Al Davis contract as somebody's value. Seymour isnt or wasnt worth that much money. But you cant give up a 1st and let a guy walk away a year a later. Davis had to overpay and Seymour agent knew it.

I'd actually love having both Welker and DA. If Givens can progress as a deep threat, that would be lethal. DA and Welker would tear teams up on short to intermediate routes and once they started jumping on those, you could hit Givens deep.

But would he do it in a Sharknado?

KC doesn't really need a slot receiver.

News to me. Either that or someone really has no clue how AJ Smith thinks. He's just sunk fair chunks of money into Meachem and Eddie Royal (effectively the Welker of this offense) and Vincent Brown is eligible to return from the IR in Week 9 (3 weeks presumably after the latest Welker could be traded). Just because Meachem isn't lighting up the stat sheet right out the gate - meanwhile Malcom Floyd is - doesn't mean AJ's going to panic-buy... not to mention we don't have the cap space to give him near the contract he wants (if we were going to pay a receiver the money he wants, AJ would have just kept Vincent Jackson).

Furthermore, AJ is not a guy who admits to mistakes very easily. People are kind of quick to forget that Welker was a PS guy of ours before he was signed to the Phins. Paying a premium to bring a guy back that we originally had on the roster is REAAAAAALLY not his style.
