→ The Future of Wes Welker in New England

After being unwilling to commit to a 31-year-old Welker during this past offseason, it would be a surprise if the Patriots showed a willingness to do so next offseason. Bedard suggests that between a reduced role on offense, and the emergence of Edelman, Welker could be traded before the October 30 trade deadline, a scenario repeated by Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com. A trade could be considered even more of a possibility now that the Patriots have re-signed Deion Branch and added tight end Kellen Winslow to the roster, but would team would consider trading for Welker?

I cannot imagine Welker leaving the Patriots, but he seems to want the kind of deal that he simply will not get from the Pats.
