There's really no point in delaying the inevitable, is there?
The sooner we all just accept the fact that one of the primary storylines of the New England Patriots' 2013 offseason is Wes Welker and whether or not he will be in New England come September, the better off we'll all be. As much as I'd like to think that people listen to anything I say and that I have any influence on the national sports media, I'm really starting to realize that most respectable journalists don't even know who I am. So I'm not even going to bother fighting this one. I may as well jump in there with both feet. Let's all get ready for a whole lotta Wes.
Now unless I'm missing something, one of three things is going to happen over the next few weeks/months regarding Wes Welker. The Patriots are either going to part ways with him, they are going to sign him to a multi-year deal, or they are going to franchise him again. I guess there could be other scenarios out there, like maybe they re-sign him and then trade him to another team, but I find that highly unlikely. I think the three scenarios I just mentioned are the ones most likely to occur this offseason.
