I fully agree with the concept of not paying for past production, but the pats are simply a better team with him on it. While I'm happy that this is his last year in Foxboro, if I were a pats fan, I wouldn't be too quick to say g'bye. Julian Edelman can't become Wes welker simply because he's white.
It is what it is crash.
Welker has had a great, productive career with the Patriots and I'm sure all Pats fans appreciate his efforts.
But given his age, size and wear and tear on his body, Welker's production will not slowly decline. He'll go downhill very fast.
Pats are paying him $9.5MM this year so I hope he has a good final year in Foxboro.
