If I'm Welker, I don't go the extra mile this year, take it easy...coast to the $9 mill payday, and stay healthy
Pats show no loyalty to a good soldier. Stay healthy and move on next year
Why would Welker want to tank it this year? He's playing for his last big contract before he retires, and if he has another good year, he'll probably get that from some team out there. It just won't be the Pats.
And exactly how does "loyalty" win games in 2012 and beyond?
Losing teams in the NFL reward loyalty, winning teams know exactly when to get rid of players. The Steelers unloading Holmes is a perfect example.
