I'd much rather have Edelman at Edelman prices IF he could stay healthy. Big if though.
Welker is extremely durable and has been insanely productive with the Pats. But he's pricey, getting long in the tooth, and increasingly has the "dropsies" at inopportune moments. Also, I agree with those who question whether his production would continue with a non-elite QB.
Welker still tore it up with Cassell who is a JAG. But I agree he'd be way to pricey.
I don't like Edelman and think he'd be a waste of a roster spot here.
Resign Braylon Edwards. Sign a cheap vet QB like Garrard or VY, cut Tebow and demote Sanchez to 3rd stringer/Female Celeb-hopper.
