  1. At this juncture in his career, Wes Welker needs to think about Wes Welker. That’s why I believe 2012 should and will be his last season in New England. Hasn’t Welker’s salary (excluding workout, roster, signing, and option bonuses) varied from $550,000 to $2.15 million since joining the Pats? If so, then that’s peanuts, especially considering during that time he’s been a four-time Pro Bowler and All-Pro, and a three-time NFL reception leader. I expect that Welker, the man Tom Brady reportedly called the “heart and soul” of the Patriots and “the best player on our team,” will reach unrestricted free agency after the 2012 season. I also expect that Wes will finally, and for the first time in his career, secure a long-term, competitively-priced deal in 2013—with a team not named the New England Patriots, of course—commensurate with his status as an elite NFL wide receiver.

  2. “Broncos vice president of football operations John Elway is getting back into the car business.”

    Back into the car business? My Sunday L.A. times is usually stuffed with at least one multipage ad for “Elway Toyota.”
