Welker unlikely to be ready for opener
Posted Feb. 25 at 12:48 AM
An article in today's Boston Herald indicates that Wes Welker is doing well in his rehab from reconstructive knee surgery, but that it's unrealistic to expect him to be ready for the start of the 2010 season. That's simply too soon of a turnaround, considering Welker didn't injure the knee until the final week of the season.
With Randy Moss 33 and in the final year of his contract (he said at the end of last week that he doesn't expect to be back) and Welker on the mend, the Patriots will likely have to address the receiver position in the offseason, by either draft, free agency or both. They signed Joey Galloway last year, which didn't work out, and also selected Brandon Tate and Julian Edelman.
In this article Notre Dame’s Golden Tate, Louisiana State’s Brandon LaFell and Cincinnati’s Mardy Gilyard are mentioned as draft possibilities.
The Patriots also signed David Patten, but he's 36 years old -- unlikely to help them much.
