Default Wallace for....

Interesting thought-- I admit I have not yet looked into the "capology" of it, or if it is even possible, but....

Supposedly the Patriots are interested in Mike Wallace. Wallace does not really fit into Haley's system that well, and he has hands of stone.

On the other hand, the Patriots have a WR that they are trying to part ways with, after he had his most productive season with them. He is alos a phenomenal possession and slot receiver, which would fit in our system better than a deep threat that can't catch.

How about Wes Welker for Mike Wallace?

I think this WR corps would be pretty respectable:

Antonio Brown
Manny Sanders
Wes Welker
Jericho Cotchery

It does not have Wallace, but still has LOTS of speed, experience, and when you throw Heath in there-- we would have some realy good hands for Ben to throw to.

Wes Welker would not drop passes that hit him right on the hands....Wallace would be a perfect Trojan horse to give the Patriots. He would take Brady passes away from Gronk, Hernandez, and Sanders and waste them by putting the bal on the ground like he always does.

If we don't have the cap space for Wallace, we certainly don't have the cap space for Welker. Also, I don't want him here. Say Haley does go to Arizona and is the new head coach of the Cardinals - that means a change in offensive philosophy. I'm not sure I'd want to pay 10 million to a slot receiver to play in a new offensive scheme, especially if it's a more vertical and upfield passing game.

I'd trade Wallace for Brandon Flowers, though. Especially if Keenan Lewis is gone.

You still need a short-mid game in a vertical attack. You can't go full-vertical.

I would be for it if he was willing to take Brown money - but he won't be.

I see him re-signing for less than he originally wanted because he realizes the grass doesn't get much greener, OR he ends up in Green Bay - my two cents since they'll have to adjust the offense because Jennings will be gone

Do we even have the ability to trade him? I thought his contract was up which means he's free to sign with anyone he wants or am I missing something here?

wouldn't happen anyway. Teams don't do trades like that, especially ours. Welker's heading to the downhill side of his career as well.

two names: Wilson and Washington. We don't really need big names at WR - we need hands.

Nah, you're right. I admit I did not research this at all-- was a just a little nugget/brain-fart that I threw out there.

It's cool. I just wanted to make sure. Anyhow. I think if he walks. We probably get a third round comp pick next year for him. Can't remember the last time we had a comp pick that high. Very interested to see where he goes and for what kind of money. He's definitely not getting the Calvin Johnson money he wanted.

We would have to tag him if we wanted to trade him and that won't happen

the hilarious thing of Wallace's situation, is that he might get Brown money or even slightly higher, and will spend the rest of his career in oblvion

Everyone said "Take the solid money Mikey - play for a real org"

Did he listen?

Then there's Woodley the Walrus - this guy has too much dough on the dotted line . . .
